I think I've just about done all I can.....I'm going to relax with a scotch soon and enjoy a well earned break. It has been a busy few weeks and it's funny as I didn't think I would get accepted to do the markets as it was so close to the date when I applied. But I think it's all meant to be. I found that my diary was empty for the next 2 1/2 weeks and also I'd been looking for denim fabric for quite a while and I was running out very quickly. I thought if only I could get some denim that would really be an incentive to do the markets. Guess what? The next day Spotlight received some lightweight denim.....what I had been looking for.......AND they were having a 20% off sale. So that was enough for me to dedicate the next 2 1/2 weeks to solid sewing and getting some new designs in the system.
I have now 71 garments to go to the Markets with and bloomers and little handbags also. But I didn't think I would have time to make boys pants. But I did. Along with all the garments I've had a sore back....from too much sewing.....headaches and a few sleepless nights. So tomorrow I'll see if it's been worth it. Somehow I think it will be.
I'm really excited and looking forward to the Markets tomorrow....it will be really nice to see my garments being received by the public and getting my brand out there. I've really enjoyed being under a bit of pressure getting new designs going and working with some really gorgeous American 100% cotton fabric.
I look forward to seeing some of you tomorrow. Come up and say hi .... I would love to meet my fans who have been supporting me and encouraging me along the way.
I'm off to do a bit of R & R and have that well earned scotch.
See you tomorrow.
p.s. I'll post a blog and photos sometime early next week.
