Indulging myself



how nice would it be ~ to bury my head into all the nice, pretty and soft fabrics...

this morning, had a meeting with two visitors from the NY office.
they wanted to understand how our team does ^&*.

so, there i was, explaining to them:
"on a daily basis, we receive this report.  our team goes over the report, row by row, determines what is the @#$, takes out all the noise, calculates what is the actual +^# and takes the necessary action."

while in my head, i was thinking: how nice would it be if the conversation goes like this instead:
"on a daily basis, i receive tailor-made orders from my clients.  i go over my stack of fabrics and materials, piece by piece, determine what is the best coordination, take out all the necessary tools, calculate what is the actual yards/meters/inches of material needed and start cutting and sewing."

luckily, these words didn't burst out of my mouth.

joanna ~~ i think i know which amy butler pattern you are talking about... this one in the pic is from linnet... very soft.. hehe... if i ever have such a business, i think i will only accept clients like siu momo! hehehe

ashlee ~~ i am just like you... stuck in a job which is not what i love... i envy those who can make a living out of work that they truly love.
