today I just made a dress, I haven't ever asked for payment before, but I really need to start working right now, I mean paid work... but this was so uncomfortable, I felt ashamed though the dress was beauty and the client was happy with it... but I always sew with many love and I feel as if I were selling my love.... absurd I know...
 but does anyone knows what I am talking about?

I say good for you!  Isn't it everyone's dream to have a job they LOVE, instead of one they are miserable with?  You should be thrilled that you were able to make money doing just that, and that perhaps you can continue to do so.  I mean, is this any different that if you were to work at a pet store and really liked it because you really liked animals?  You would still be dedicating your time and love for your job in exchange for money, right?

This is how I feel, but I too need to make a little extra money. If someone wants it bad enough they will pay for it and know that it was made with love and will be unique.

I know exactly how you feel. It hurts sometimes to list my things for sale.
Right now I am having that same "problem" with my Christmas gifts I am making- I wanna keep them all Undecided ..... but if I did then no one would get any gifts this year!

I can imagine what that is like Sad  But think about the up side of it, someone loved what you did so much that they paid for it!  That has to be an ego booster Smiley
