lastest madness
LOL! I was just about to post saying I'm insane and just now starting an outfit for Saturday when I saw on my friend's list I'm not the only one! Is it any wonder we are all friends? :>

Anyway I really WAS going to be a good girl and wear something from the closet but I really want something spiffy for the Farm. That was really just the finial nail in the coffin I have to say though. koshka_the_catrecently sent me the leftover taffeta from her Robe de Style so that's been burning a hole in my CADD pocket, so to speak. Then I heard news last night there is going to be a 18th Century Ice Cream Social at Costume College... no idea what that is or if I'm going to go but I have the perfect fabric and frosting hat for it! My plan will also work wonderfully for Frilly Friday - I mean how can I not?

So here I am, giving in to the CADD. What can I say... Resistance is Futile.

Well pretty anyway!! Not a pistachio fan myself, now pumkin cheesecake or mint chocolate-chip... :P

CADD? Me? Never! :-)

I don't know why, but the taffeta screams caraco jacket to me. ...with light pink or very light lavender accents? Not sure, but it looks like it would do well as a caraco....

LOL. No of course not!

We are thinking along the same lines... I'm hoping to get to a pink petticoat done too... I have a while voile back-up though if that doesn't happen.

LOL - I started a new one last week, so I'm just a bit ahead of you! I've been working on it every evening though - hope we'll all be done in time!

So you are smarter than me! Yeah it will be a late night tonight as most of tomorrow will be taken up with macaroon baking...

Not smarter really - I don't get home from work til after 7pm, and I had a commitment last Saturday, so time was a big factor! :-) Ooh, macaroons, I like the sound of that!

Regarding 18th C Ice Cream Social!! I know! I currently have nothing appropriate to wear--think I can manage to get something done for it in time? I'll have the rest of May to finish something before I start torturing myself with summer classes! AHHH!!!

You crazy woman! I've been scheming about a jacket too! It must be spreading. ;)
