It is hot. Its almost too hot to concentrate. I have sweat beading on the back of my neck, my fan is turned up to eleven and all of the windows and doors are open in the hope of trying to catch anything that resembles a breeze. So far this summer I have been sun burned three times! So irresponsible, I know, but I swear the sun is feeling hotter than ever and it has completely caught me by surprise!
We have been enjoying frequent visits to the beach and meals outside on the patio with neighbours and friends. This is summer as I remember from my childhood. Napping during the day in front of the fan and playing outside even when the sun has gone down and the mozzies have come out. 2013 is off to a lazy and enjoyable start.
Today I finalised the details of my latest orders. Now I am ready to start cutting and despite the heat I am feeling pretty excited to get to work. I haven't touched my sewing machine for nearly a month!! So far this summer has been all about music festivals, barbecues, parties, friends, movies, pools, beaches, family and food. I am starting to feel desperate to tap back into my creative side and make some plans for this new year.
I am planning on shutting the etsy shop again for the next couple of weeks while I have my new internet connection installed. This will allow me to focus on finishing my current orders before I take on any new ones. I will be answering emails on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Hopefully by Friday this stack of fabric will look like a rack of half finished dresses!
