Ugh, I'm suffering so severely from CADD that I have locked down and not sewn a thing! I thought if perhaps I reorganized my fabrics it would help. I recorded yardages of recent fabrics I haven't logged yet, and I removed anything from the shelf that was less than 4 yards. This at least helped me narrow down what I have available to work with.

I have 80% of that bodice done from 2 weeks ago, but haven't been inspired to finish it, or start the overskirt (well, I have to design it first). Then I have this green and black wool I want to make an 1880's bustle coat out of. I got as far as cutting out a pattern and doing a half-muslin of my design changes, but I know I need some black fringe before I get started or I'll do the coat without it in my impatience. The other day I cut, wired, and sewed the buckram parts for a new mini top hat, then stalled because I don't know what I want to cover it with. I want to make a gown from my black cotton velvet (10 yds) and raspberry moire bengaline (7 yds), but what?? I have 8 yards of a great poly taffeta black on black stripe, but what should it be? AHHHH!

So I'm going to go down stairs and watch episode 3 of Charles Dickens 'Martin Chuzzlewitt'. Feel free to order me about and tell me what to work on.
