Post christmas plans

I have many of them. Mostly because I'm frustrated with how long it's taking me to get stuff done for xmas, but sadly that's the nature of the beast when I'm knitting in lunchbreaks and the hour or so after I get home.

Anyway, after xmas, I have plans.
I'm going to finish the green shawl I was making for me, and I'm going to finish the skirt muslin I was making to see how massively out that sizing is.
I have a small hope that I might get a dressmakers dummy (or at least money towards one) for xmas, so that would make things a little easier.

I have LARP kit I want to make; a new dress for Odyssey, and a shirt for my rogue that looks a bit more Roman than what I've got at the moment. I might also remake the coat for my totally not nasty wannabe paladin. We shall see.
And there's the usual round of repairs to be made.

I also, today, in my lunchbreak, purchased this fabric and this fabric plus all the associated stabilisers and stuff to make this bag. Confession; I've never inserted a zip properly in my life. I've bodged them into things and hidden them on costume, but I've never done it properly, so this will be an experience.
I also have one of the other Swoon bag patterns for later on in the year, and another bag pattern from elsewhere for when I've worked out what the hell I'm doing (some people collect shoes, I have bags. And shoes).

I also bought this fabric as a fat quarter, which I'm not sure what I'm going to do with yet, but I have a bunch of random fat quarters that I've acquired over the last year or so, so I'm going to have to think of something (that isn't quilting).
