Felicity, Miscellenia

I feel like the old lady who swallowed a fly…

I need to finish the corset I am working on (and which I am so over) so that I can…

…Make the shorts I really want to have done by Monday, so I can…

…Make the panniers I need done by Thur, so that I can…

…Add a little more trim to the Lady Anne Darcy dress and petticoat which go over the panniers, because until that is done I can’t…

…Fix all the bits I wasn’t happy with with my Art Deco Wardrobe, which I really should get done before I…

…Start working on 1911 evening gowns, which is what I really want to be working on!


And that’s not even counting the stuff I’m working on for clients!

Sigh.  I love my job so much I hate it at times!

I also need to schedule in time to do this



  1. DITTO!!! feeling exactly the same way although my list is slightly different. Thanks for the apt illustration. I will tell you what my mom always tell’s me…” You always get it done though” So let’s be grateful for being able to do what we love to do…just some days more than others – lol

  2. I made a list the other day of things I have in my sewing queue, ranked. Wouldn’t you know, Yarrow-In-Flower was last on the list, and what did I work on this week?

    You have the perfect excuse for not getting to that corset, though…a warm cat on your lap that can’t be disturbed.

  3. Oh dear, I feel like that sometimes as well… although your list seems more impressive.
    And I love your dress.

    Love it! Life is like that, isn’t it? Dear Felicity will help. That is a really nice dress you are wearing in that photo – great pattern and most attractive fabric. Hard to get a good green.

  5. Yep. Me too.

    Heh heh heh… I often just drop things from my list in order of what I’m least interested in/least important/etc. Though not if it’s work for someone…

  6. I REALLY LOVE MY JOB. But, sometimes it gets in the way of my hobbies. To bad I need it to finance my hobbies!

    I like that green dress too. I looks awesome on you. Did you make it (possibly silly question).

    • My hobby became my job, so now it is complicated.

      I didn’t make that dress. It’s by Banana Republic, and my sister found it at an op shop, but decided she didn’t like it. Luckily I did! The fabric is a fantastic silk jersey with an Art Nouveau inspired pattern. I do love green, so this is one of my favourites.
