All those projects from this time last year? Done. Latch-hook? Done. Wedding scrapbook? Very done. Anything else I was working on? Probably done, but I honestly don't remember.
My current craft project is sewing a coat. It's modified off of a civil war uniform pattern, and shall be used for a costume I'm working on. I'm about half-done; it's fully lined, and I have the upper shell and lining done, though not attached to each other yet.
When that's complete, I intend to make a hat and figure out how to put a waist into a flightsuit. (Which are, sadly, not designed for women.)
I also have all the supplies to start on my honeymoon scrapbook, but am waiting until I am done with the coat to start. Moderation, and all that. Or so we will pretend.

Here's the minimum I hope to get accomplished:
-sketch a person everyday
-finish my writing desk
-do five rows a week on my latch-hook
-make a dress maker's dummy
-sew cloth costume portions of Titania costume (shirt, coat, belts)
Pictures and so forth will go up here as I make progress.

This doesn't really count, but if I wait for a real project it'll be weeks before you get an update.
After that it wasn't too hard. Just pinned the clasp in place and hand sewed it back on.
And then it was done. Huzzah! And since I had the sewing stuff out, Andrew asked me to put the patches on his Kung Fu uniform too. Anything to not write. :D
I still have a set of opera gloves and a blouse to mend as well, but I haven't gotten there yet.
I did get my pictures for the wedding scrapbook in the mail yesterday, so hopefully I'll get to Michaels this weekend and I can get started on that as well. I still need to order the honeymoon pictures for that scrapbook.
I am one of those mildly insane people who sit down every November and write 50000 words. This is my fifth year, and I've gotten to the point of the month where I wonder why I do this to myself every year, and wonder why I am forcing myself to write 2000 words a day when I'd really rather be playing video games, or staring at the wall, or anything really, and begin to despair of keeping up the pace.
But I will, because it means I'll be done early and then the rest of November will be mine, bwhahahaha.
I am a writing nerd. I have a little portable writing table with folding legs (which will become an art project in late November or early December - it is unfinished and I am sick of splinters) and special writing gloves to protect my wrists. It is all extremely nerdy and if I remember I will take a picture of it later.

The point of this blog will be to showcase my art/costuming projects, of which I normally have one or more of in process at any one time. Frankly, I think the people over at my normal blog (located at http://kandybar.livejournal.com) may be a little annoyed when I babble about such things, so I'm going to separate them out and put them over here.
I've never used Blogger before but I have read other people's blogs on it and I find it to be a nice, professional looking site, so I'm pleased to be here.
Real content coming soon!
