I have now been working on my sewing business for 2 years. I have made great strides, but there are always some... obstructions that come along the way. Not all of the obstructions are bad, and I must say some are blessings in disguise. The usual problems are of the car, losing a job, moving, and then there are those that are not a problem, just part of life. My 86 year old mother has been living with me for ten months now. My husband was working 200 miles away. So, he left his job and now we are both taking care of my mom. She has dementia and needs 24 hour care. I have become closer to her, and we have a great relationship, but her dementia is somewhat a challenge. She loves to fold and refold my fabric, which is OK, but she does forget where she puts it. I give her some clothes to rip seams, not customers clothes but some I was going to donate. So if she rips a h***, no big deal. Is there anyone else out there that has the same sort of situation? I have two businesses and taking care of my mom. It would be great to connect with others that are in the same situation.
