not excited

I hit a snag with the Regency dress. I have no idea what I'm doing and it's frustrating. Victorian dresses are easy because I've done them 70 times already. I understand how they work. No idea with this dress. I've already written to the pattern maker twice for help, and I'm loathe to bother her again. Plus, I'm a visual learner, and I tend to go, "Huh?" when people try to explain how something works verbally. Oh well. At least I don't need the Regency for anything soon!

In other sewing news, I've become totally disenchanted with the grey silk NF dress I'm making. It doesn't excite me at all. I guess that's what happens when you don't plan a dress out fully before you start sewing. This just isn't what I want to spend my Winter Break making. I think I'm going to put it away.

Problem is, I know what I want to make, and I don't have the fabric for it, nor the money to get it at the moment. I have all this other fabric instead, and none of it is speaking to me. How sad is that? I was inspired for a few days to make a francaise out of this gorgeous black cotton/poly damask, but now I'm afraid to cut into the dear fabric for fear that the minute I do, I realize that the fabric is really perfect for something else. I'm so crazy!!

At least I was productive yesterday. I put on the 2nd coat of sealer/primer in the bedroom and spot cleaned the downstairs carpeting.
