My meaning

It dawned on me today that I don't particularly enjoy sewing a ton of one thing for other people.  This is also the same reason why I will NOT do clothing repairs or alterations for people.  Why?  People are never happy.  People nit pick until there is nothing to pick.  You create a new pattern based upon customer requests you have your handful of happy/delighted customers and then the run of the mill grumpy people who are never happy who buy and then want to return because its not what they thought it was even though you have so many pictures showing the very last detail of your product.  So this is part of the reason why I am turning most of my "That's Sew Jenni" design company into a pattern only company.  I designed the patterns you can sew the product.

Though the other reason that made me realize today that I'm in the wrong business is I don't have a passion for what I'm doing.  People say you should blog your passion.  Didn't think about that when I started writing this blog.  I've always had a passion for being self-sufficient.  I enjoy and have a passion to sew when I create something I need, or just design and create something I need in general whether I sew it or not.  That is my passion.  And along with creating what I need vs buying it I do have a great passion for conserving, growing a garden, saving money, budgeting, planning, staying organized, etc.  I do have a passion for entrepreneurship as well but you need a business plan for that part of any venture.

I'm not sure where my passion will lead me or into what exactly.  But if anyone is reading this blog I guess you'll find out.

  1. Yippee for finding your passion and meaning! I know exactly how you feel, and it is so confusing, at the core we know what makes us happy. You will get there and yes, I read every post!
