The worst part is the fact that I wasn't able to get anything done.
I was thinking about sewing, but I don't have ANY usable fabrics for the two projects with the closest due date. (Work project for last week of Nov/first week of Dec. and commission for Aunt)
So I thought maybe I would work on somthing else instead, like projects for Ushicon. I DO have fabrics for those.
This isn't exactly the best time to ask me to try on pants over and over again, so I decided not to work on the Gogo pants. Since I didn't have enough of the other types of fabrics to get started on the cloak, etc for that, I decided to work on my pirate costume. I have the fabrics for the jacket on that, and I even have patterns. It took a while for me to decide on the pattern, but I got things sorted out. I didn't want to cut out pattern peices until I'd located my purple rat tail, though. I needed it for some eyelet/lacing loops for the back of the jacket. I pretty much tore the house apart looking for it.
Have you ever felt you could bet that you owned somthing that you couldn't find?? I'm 100% certain I have a spool of unused purple rattail.. SOMEWHERE. And it bothers me that I haven't been able to locate it. I've really centralized all my sewing notions, and it's not with the rest. I can't even remember where I'd seen it last, and it bugs me that I can't find it when I need it.
I also realized that I have less than 25% of a spool of purple thread, no purple lining material, and no purple ribbon, so I decided not to start the project yet. I felt like sewing, so after I'd cut everything out, I'd damned well want to sew it all together.
Oh well. That means nothing gets done >..<
At least I burned off some energy. I felt like playing some DDR or working out a little bit, but at the moment I'm restricted from a lot of movement. Maybe in a few days I'll fell up to it. Until then, I really need to get down to Jo Ann's and pick up some supplies. I hate having to buy fabric and sewing supplies when I have so many remnants at the house I can't do anything with XD
There is still a very large box sitting in the entryway of the house. I'm not allowed to open it. It's very large and maddening.
Oh yeah. And I REALLY want to listen to Lillie Charlotte by Lareine, but I can't find it on my computer anywhere. I figured I'd just pop the CD in, but then I realized I only own Blue Romance and Fierte to Umiblahblahblahblah Final Romance. Curses. The worst part of it all is that I had been wandering around the house humming "Aoi tori no sugata no...." trying to remember what the song title was for a good 5 minutes before I remembered to check Inertia's site.
I should also mention that I managed to find tracks 1-3 and 5 from the Lillie Charlotte mini-album, but not track 4... which, incidentally, is the SONG Lillie Charlotte, and the one I have stuck in my head right now. >..
