I have entered sewing sweat shop hell!

So I knew I had my big Debut open house this Sunday the 23rd for about two months. An organized business owner/designer/artisan would have had a plan of attack and would have worked steadily creating new items, tagging them, and pricing them all before the last few days. But not me. No, I had to procrastinate, and let life get in the way. I kept thinking I had more time, that somehow the things would get made.

I have been sewing like a fiend for the past 4 days and I still have so much to do before Sunday. I wake up at 5 each morning with a nervous pit in my stomach and my mind racing. I start sewing at 8:45, after my daily school commute and stop at 2 to pick up the kids, get homework going and start dinner. I start again at 7 and sew until 11. It's still not enough!

So, I am hoping that I will have enough to sell and showcase on Sunday. I am really hoping for this to jump start my business and get me some much needed Christmas spending money!!

With that, I will sign off to get back to work. Wish me luck, pray for me, and I will post more when this madness has ended.

Happy Crafting.

Hi, thanks for your encouraging comment on my blog. I hope your show goes well, too! You are obviously more prepared than I am. We must check back in after the weekend to report on our (hopefully) great success!!
