The WORKS of July

Once the FireWORKS and all the Patriotic Celebrations were shared and over, I hit a blank wall...which is somewhat like a Genealogist's Brick Wall in that I didn't know what to do next.  Bet you are having a hard time believing that happens to me...you know with my OverDoSueness and all. 

At any rate, I wandered around for a couple of days, dabbling in this and that but not getting much done in my Sewing Studio.  Now at my JOB WORK, I got lots done and WORKED more hours than scheduled.   I did get a couple of WORK Aprons made...one for me and several for co-WORKERS.  As part of my dabbling I made Sarah Jane a nightgown.  I haven't blogged about her in a long while...she's my childhood doll...she's in need of some new clothes.  Isn't this a cute pattern by Simplicity?  The outfits are designed in the style of the 1950's which is perfect for Sarah Jane as she was my Christmas gift when I was 10 years old in 1957.

Finally, this past week, with fewer hours at my JOB WORK, I had some time to WORK in the Studio.  I re-WORKED and organized a collection of Bag Fabrics from summer fabrics to fall fabrics which led to re-WORKING trims, buttons and jewelry accessories for embellishments on the New Fall Bag design. 
Just the WORKING INSPIRATION I needed!!!
So back to WORK on the NEW LINE of FALL BAGS!
I Love It when everything WORKS OUT!

How many hours do you work at the fabric store? Busy Sue!

Down time is just as necessary as work time, Sue. BTW, your blog wall paper is fabulous!

Sue McPeak said...

Yes, busy, busy. Most weeks I work 25 to 30 hours in 5 days. Lately, it's been a few more hours here and there. So far so good.

So true Sandra. During my down time, I do a lot of reorganizing and cleaning up from one project to get ready for whatever I decide to do next. Does that count as down time? The wall paper is a collage of pictures from my studio which was added to the selections of backgrounds as a custom wallpaper. It's easy to do...just have to size it for blogger to accept it. Glad you like it.

I thought maybe the pattern was one my mom had used for my Shirley Temple doll, but only the checked dress is like one she made. The other patterns are different. Oh well.
