Today was a gorgeous day! It was 71F and there were so many outdoor activities that me and the "Wee-One" were able participate in. And on top of that the weather will be almost 80F on tomorrow so I found it REALLY HARD to stay indoors and sew the winter top and skirt that I wouldn't even be able to wear on tomorrow. Despite the "yo-yo" weather I'll begin sewing the skirt on tomorrow.
But while I was out and about today I received a text message from my recent client, a dance instructor for a local high school. She finally sent me over the pics of the Reversible Hooded capes (McCall's 2853) I made as being worn by the high school's danceline team. Only 8 of the 10 I made are pictured. Needless to say after having a wonderful day out on the town these pics really made my day extra special. I got a little choked up to be quite honest. Alot of work (pattern design changes/ alterations) and time went into this project and to have it be so well received is just great! All of the ladies look spectacular!
So as seamstresses, for every project that we do that often requires SO much sweat and tears, there is much reward in success. I'm glad to stand in the company of other "Proud Mamas".
What project, as of late, has made you feel like a "Proud Mama".
