I suppose people could say what they are working on.
As soon as I can get free for the holidays I have a 1929 dress (great cotton
printed sateen with double bias tape trim) and felt cloche hat to make.  I'm
doing a historical presentation the first week of February on Eddie and
Sugar Lou's Hotel Tyler Orchestra, a great little hot jazz band here in East
Texas.  They recorded in Dallas (you can hear them online) and played on a
Shreveport radio station.  Both come from very interesting African-American
families.  The local historical society loves the dress-up aspect.  The last
outfit was a World War I Red Cross ensemble which I'll be wearing again when
I am one of the "spirits" at our oldest cemetery in April.
