Well it's Sunday and there is lots to do seeing I took the day off yesterday by going to the gym in the morning and going out in the afternoon. This doesn't happen often but it's one of the privileges of being one's own boss!
The beauty of tailoring is that it can be done anytime nothing will go bad it will be there waiting for when the tailor is ready to work. This really works for me because I can map out everything in my mind before going ahead with cutting or sewing especially if there is a problem to be solved. I think it through, run possible scenarios in my mind with solutions already in place which often leads me to find a more simple solution than I had originally planned :)
Today I have to finish a top for a client, alter a mock up for another client or create a second mock up to be sure when I cut into the fabric the jacket will fit perfectly and if there is any time left at the end of the day I will finish my homework assigned to the Bradford class! I think this will keep my busy for a bit this afternoon.
After all this is done then I have another cooking video to edit and post on Youtube on how to cook chicken breast so it stays moist and flavourful. This morning I'm going to try something different for lunch, a rice dish that has the same ingredients as "arancini" or rice balls that are stuffed with cheese and pasta sauce, shaped then fried; this recipe is made in a bundt pan and baked instead of fried. Keep you posted on the outcome. It's actually a practice session for next Sunday when we have our annual family ladies day get together with 30 of our most intimate family! LOL yes 30 or so... everyone brings something and we have a great day full of bonding between the generations/family members. I look forward to it every year, eventually it will be my turn to host when my name is picked out of the hat.
