Can one wear too much fleece?

How much fleece is too much for one outfit? This is an age old question. Well, not really. My daughter questioned whether I might overdose on the amount of fleece I was sporting in one ensemble. Actually, I'm not a big fleece fan, but I wanted to show off my vest I had finally finished, so I wore it out when we went out shopping and then to dinner. Of course I was also wearing a fleece jacket, scarf, and mittens. Is this too much? I did not overdose, but I have concluded that fleece on fleece isn't a "good thing."

I started a new project tonight; a messenger bag. I'm using black duck canvas. I haven't gotten very far as I have been distracted by the Olympics and then American Idol. I have cut my pieces and completed the flap, which I appliqued (see photo). I plan on trying to make the strap adjustable by using a technique I saw on Sewing with Nancy. For the record, Nancy is one of my heroes. I hope to complete the bag tomorrow. Until then, goodnight.
