the second one, i have had the material forever, and i finally saw this pattern that i liked and thought it would make up nice in the fabric, AND the dress would go well with my new boots! this next one below, i saw the dress in santa cruz this past may, while i was visiting my sibs (and having lots of fun!) and sketched the dress out on a napkin in the pizza place after i saw it. then i saw something similar on an e-bay auction, (there on computer print-out) but did not like the material, a brown/yellow printed floral. i found this pattern, which i can make it work, and this material which i LOVE! probably 'cause it is pink, and has roses!
then, this last coat i have had in mind for a time also. i saw something similar in a store in LA when my daughter was there for school two years ago, but it had fur trim collar and cuffs, and was in a gold brocade. and it was also in the beverly center, and therefore a designer store, and cost a bigger chunk of change than i make in a couple of months work! i like this red brocade, and think this will be a fun coat to have.
then, i have several purses cut out that need to be stitched together, and a couple of hats that i cut out, that also need to be put together, AND still i have the paint that i bought to paint my work area! maybe i should just cut my list of things to do apart, put everything into a hat (one that is already sewn together!) and draw one out! then, that's what to do first. and the interesting thing is, my horoscope said i should finish all those projects that i have started, and never finished! bleah...maybe i'll just delete my horoscope!
