I’m beyond scatter-brained at the moment.  The year has started, I’m back from Florida and I’m up to my elbows in three different projects.

The one nearest to completion is yet another 70’s outfit.  I think if I can get that one out of the way, everything else will fall into place.

The second has the working title of “The 1940’s Project”.  I know, I know, it needs something a little snappier.  On my Florida adventurings, I picked up two more cookbooks, both from 1943 and I really want to cook out of them, possibly making videos to go along with the recipes.  It is essential, in my mind, that I make the appropriate clothing to go along with the project.  A new dress and apron at the very least.

The third project is the most agonizing and has caused me the most anxiety.  My biggest and most heartfelt project is due in September and I think I have finally narrowed in on the appropriate outerwear patterns for it.  Everything about it has to be perfect, and each little detail has been handled with care.  I have to be careful and pace myself, because there are several elements to this costume, such as shoes, hat, and watch, that I cannot make for myself, all of which can be rather expensive.

There now, I feel better already.
