week my "increased A&S time" goal is to finish the Van Der Wyden gown
which I started two weeks ago, but have sadly left sitting on my dress
form, untouched, since the second day of work. My other goals are: 1)

make the book of hours I've been dreaming of making for the past three
Right now I'm building myself a foundation of skills that I can apply
to my 50 projects (which, I am now gleefully referring to as the 50
Oh, also, I stated before that I would be doing the breadth challenge,
but because I love costuming so much, I'm adding a depth challenge as
well. So it's really 100 Insanities. For now. ;)
