My Two Week Sewing Vacation

The last few months I have busy sewing new projects, blogging like crazy and trying to get my shop ready for it's relaunch. Unfortunately, my health has taken a real knock and I was constantly getting sick due to the stress. During these down times I contemplated putting my business on hold to focus on other things, but I couldn't stop thinking about all the things I want to make and share. My boyfriend came up with an excellent idea to take a business sewing vacation, two weeks of relaxation and fun projects.

The first few days of my vacation were hard and I was tempted to abandon my plan and start work again, but I persevered and started to enjoy myself. I am now a week in and feeling much better. I have been watching movies, taking walks in the sun, making gifts for family and cooking yummy treats. I had forgotten how to enjoy the energy I do have on myself and not spend it all on my work.

I have had some amazing support from my readers and followers, which is greatly appreciated and spurs me on everyday. I am a stubborn Missy and I am determined to make this work! I will make it work!
