Personal Sewing Challange

Not like anyone is really going to pay too much attention to this, but I'm going to use my livejournal to keep me on track.  I am starting a personal challenge to get ready for ACEN.  So, for the next 9 weeks I will be making the following:

ONE Lolita skirt each week
TWO Lolita Headpieces each week
ONE Collar each week
ONE Pair of Bloomers each week
ONE item for my cosplay each week
ONE Misc Item each week
ONE JSK every two weeks

I will be using the Sew_Loli  forms to keep me on task.

W00T!

Ok, so I haven't been very productive lately.  XD  But I've been doing some cool shit like all of the time so its all good.  Anyways, went shopping yesterday to update my Tranny costume for Rocky Horror.  I found a new vest for $1!!!  Dude, for serious.  I'm thinking about going back and getting another.  Maybe I'll get that tailcoat, too, but that one is $25.   Anyways, about to move some stuff to my grandmother's so I can set up my sewing room.  Its nice to finally have things organized.

Projects I need to work on!!!

Ok, so here are some things that I really need to work on:

1.  Finish evillittlekiwi's pirate JSK.  Just add some lining, waistties, and include a few gifts.
2.  Finish sleepingapple's JSK.  Having some fit issues, but I think all is going well.
3.  Clean my room.  Yup, that's a two week project all on its own.
4.  Paint the jewelery box.  It a gorgeous box, it really is, but I've got some ideas for it.  I'm thinking lime green with black swirls.  Maybe.
5.  Organizers.  For both my room and the room my grandmother is letting me use for sewing.
6.  Get my sales website up and running.
