I am sewing like crazy today! I spent most of the past 1.5 hours cutting out mon-stors and plushies. :D One Mon-stor is cut and pinned, one is ready to be cut, and I got 8 plushies cut out! I have 6/8 pairs of limbs for the plushes sewn as well! :) Very productive! Working like crazy for the Strawberry Swing Festival!!!!

Here is a pic of the plushes shapes cut out!

Thanks! I am actually considering reworking Daft's hours so I have MORE time to SEW this month! I miss it so very much!! I am hoping to have fifty or more monsters for this show and what doesn't sell I will list. I have... Hm... 7 monsters right now. So I have a TON of sewing to do in the next 3 weeks!

YOu can do it :) I hope reworking the hours helps!

Not to take over your post, or change the subject, but I feel the same with Melli's Trinkets! I need a few days to just focus on it and put up new things! Looks like hubby's gonna spend quite a bit of quality time with Sir Jordan ;)

The Strawberry Swing Fest has totally lit a fire under my butt! :) lol I am having a blast jamming out to music. T and G are at a birthday party so it's just me and the cats and the dog. :D I have about another hour of uninterrupted sewing time. :)

I have been wanting to change the hours to 10-4 for weeks but everyone keeps saying "You'll miss the after-work crowd!!!"... Um, it's dead from 4-6 most days! lol. And instead of being open until 9, I want to change classes to Wed and Sat 4-6 and start doing kid workshops on Wed. We'll see how implementing all this goes. :P lol

Good luck with getting time for your joy as well! It's great when you have that creative burst and can actually USE it!!!! I hope you are able to get everything want to get done, done. :) We'll be filling this group with pictures this week of lovely completed projects, I bet. lol!
