Here are my excuses:
- Stores are close Mondays. Nope, not all of them.
- My lookbook is in review. True, but I know the main problems. Better fix them when I get home tonight.
- It was too late after I finished my commission and gathering notes. Should have started my day earlier.
- Have been researching cold-calling tips. It's true. Even pretending on my cell to be talking to a live person. Kind of boring, but my pitch is getting refined. As is my voice quality and steadiness.
I did, however, list my top choices for fabrics and their vendors for when the orders do come through. I bought the original yardage at a local jobber. Wouldn't you know, I bought the only yardage of each. When I started, I didn't think I'd be going straight through to producing this collection. So that adds a nice kink. So far it hasn't been awful. I've found some new vendors that look interesting and feel solid about the ones I've maintained.
