Keep It Together Woman!
Working on too many large projects at one time will cause unneeded anxiety and self doubt.
Below are some links to mini projects I've done or want to create.
I have a list of outfits I would like to make and I typically section it by era and type.
I also have a running list for my UFO's (unfinished objects). I try to list what the object or project is and what needs to be completed.
- add hook and eyes to waist
- hem skirt
- add buttons
- complete collar
- attach waistband
- attach cuffs
That being said this is my list (ambitious I know)!

All of the above outfits will be made with Truly Victorian patterns.

Somewhere in the midst of all those projects I plan to make a Renaissance outfit for the Ren Faire here in Arizona.
