Ok, just because this might help me get going, so far this is what I need to get done in 2008:

Man's Elizabethan court suit for client:
Done: planning stages begun
Requirements: wants venetians not slops,;likes green best; I'm leaning towards something more Italian in style; mulling over bright apple green venetians since no one ever uses it, paired with maybe a darker green brocade or black velvet doublet. Me like.

Elizabethan Viscountess dress for me: needed by mid-March!
Done: almost nothing. Every time I bend my mind to it I get sucked into the Queen dress. I have some trims I could use in the stash, but I'm pretty much starting from nothing on this one.
Requirements: It must fit into the precedence look of Guild of St. George and they dress better than any other group I've seen. Main fabric should be velvet of a jewel tone, other dresses in the group tend to be all in the reds/rusts with one blue dress in the mix. The men all seem to be in blues & greens. I might go green. There are two black dresses, but I'm contemplating black so I can go with the red & gold forepart & sleeves I'm already making for the queen dress. They will be grand enough and not cost me any more money and save me time. LOL! Any other color velvet you can think of that would go with a bright red forepart? Can't use bright red. :-(

Queen dress for me: probably not needed until Costume College
Done: all planning stages, all materials purchased, skirt cut & sewn, bodice toiled
Requirements: I have it in my mind that this should go together in a very particular sequence to make sure it all fits perfectly. At this point I need to get my filigree pieces gold plated so I can get create the guarding on the skirt before I pleat the waist. So I'm stuck waiting on the plating. Oh, I'll still need to find a decent wig.

PDSvN dress for me: looks like a 16c year for me, eh?
I have everything for this, I just want to finally get it done. It's not grand enough to wear with St. George and it's probably too grand to get away with it for St. Ives (silver trim) so I'm stuck with wanting it done but with no place to wear it. It would be great to use in St. Ives if I could get it past costume check... must work on that.
This one is not too far from being done, actually. I need to slash the sleeve linings, pleat the overskirt and sew up the doublet, which is already toiled. Oh, and decide on an undersleeve style and get to it.

Considering what's on my plate, I'm guessing these are all I'll be wearing to CC'08. I can't imagine fitting something else in there, though I still desire to finish my chemise dress.
