So much time has passed since I last posted. Perhaps this is because I entered a phase in the project that was equivalent to crossing a vast, featureless landscape. Anything I could report would replicate any previous or subsequent report. I deplore monotony, so I've had no desire to subject my readers to it.

Every day, I get up, get breakfast, feed kitties, then sit before the computer and force myself to do something, anything, on the project. This usually entails finding and fixing weak writing, discovering an animation requiring tweaks, fixing animation, followed by adjusting the writing, sending drafts to Max for review and changes, re-recording and placing new voiceovers to reflect changes, having Max watch and listen for inconsistencies and weaknesses, making corrections, re-reading script to find weak writing, and then it starts all over again. Boring, but required.

Over the last month, I've been developing the manual. I must say, it looks quite good. Everything looks good. When people finally see this, I think they will be very impressed... possibly blown away -- drinking from a fire hose blown away.

This work is so grueling, I am extremely vulverable to distractions, and the easiest distractions are from garment design and sewing. I posted a mohair coat concept some time ago... That coat is still not made. I had to think carefully about additional notions, part details, and such, to make it. I finally found all of the parts, so when I am ready to finalize the design, I will be able to go straight to work on construction.

Meanwhile, I have been sewing many of my new designs. I made a vest, three shirts, knit tops, pants, some scarves. Everything fits just right. I'm also working on the "lecture jacket" design. Soon, I'll make a 1/4 scale model of it, so I can examine its overall proportions. Once everything is right, I'll make a muslin mockup in full scale to see what details need to be adjusted. Then I'll make the jacket.

Finally, I have decided to stop resisting the urge to embroider. I have never embroidered, but it seems so closely related to drawing and painting, I expect it to be an easy hobby to take up. I love how embroidery transforms garments into something covet-worthy. I want to design my own image icons, but I suspect I will incorporate some traditional imagery with it. I don't know anything about embroidery yet, but two books are on the way as I write -- after a little study, I'll be able to verbalize this better.
