    I do that, too.

    Do you use the assembly line technique when you sew mass quantities? It's much quicker than doing things singly.

    I used to do contract sewing for a bootmaker here in town. Time was literally money because I was paid by the piece. I learned all the tricks to sewing many of the same items quickly! I still do that when I sew shirts or something, get them all cut out and then do each step on every one, one right after the other. I can do three in not much more time than one.

    YES!!! I sat down and opened a vein or two and FINISHED MY ARTICLE! Aaaahhhhhhh, relief! Now it just has to marinate for a while and I'll polish it up and get it out the door.

    On the down side, now I just want to go back to Yellowstone! *sigh*


    The hardest thing on my list is done, so it should be smooth sailing doing mindless things the rest of the day.

    WTG SD!! Cruise away and enjoy your day!!

    Yes I do assembly line sewing and can whip things out. Isn't it amazing how fast we can get things done when there's money involved?

    Don't know what today is going to look like. Having a problem with my eye and think I should get a sub and head to the doctor - don't like messing with eyes. My list for the day will depend on this decision.

    Have a great day friends!!

    Hope your eye feels better. I don't mess with eyes either. Get the sub and go have it taken care of!

    The sewing contract paid me the most I've ever made per hour, except (sometimes) writing. It was amazing! I really loved that job but blew out both my wrists doing it and had to quit.

    That's scary - how are your wrists now?

    Got my sub - involved walking into our bedroom and waking up DH and asking him!! Talk about all in the family. Glald I'm going to get this checked out - pain in spreading downward - at least not into the eye.

    So, here's my plan for the day:

    1. Call in sub
    2. Call eye doctor
    3. Sewing
    4. Laundry
    5. Exercise
    6. Color hair
    7. Rest - above all rest
    8. Walgreens

    That's all I can think of right now!!

    Wrists are good for the most part but easily injured. I've learned through painful experience when to let go of the trigger on my big DeWalt drills so as not to have my wrist twisted! And since they weigh seven pounds each, it's hard for me to use them for extended periods, which slows down deck building and stuff like that. The worst is anything that requires pounding, though. Moving heavy stuff leaves me in pain, too. It wasn't fun while we were working on the kitchen but I got through it.

    Hope you get your eye fixed up soon. Face pain is the worst!
