Sew Saturday: Pajamas edition.

Yeah, I did these a while back on one day, but it was so fun(read insane) why not put them on the old blog? Right? I had just started the monster that is Darkly Sweet when I made these, so impressive I tried to do something else. So I made four bottoms and four tops on one crazed Saturday. I didn't use patterns. Patterns what? So it's a miracle they fit at all. Or I've gotten really good to functioning while obsessing about witches and mages and dragons and snarky Penny Macaroon Lane. Oh I love her so much.

Photoshoots are dangerous with teenagers. Had to dodge that pillow.

So two pairs of pj's that are almost exactly the same. How is that not awesome?

He's all, I think these might be weird, and I'm all, naw, it's cool. Like Jester, you know, super cool. Does he look convinced?

I have no idea.

So green and brown were the themes for these PJ's. And I managed to pull it off. Wow, I have a lot of brown fabrics.

Darkly Sweet

I've been writing what I think is the first draft of a three book series. I'm almost to two thousand words and not finished. So that's taken a lot of time. I'm not sure if I'll publish it because it's a pretty vulgar classless piece of chick lit fantasy that I find absolutely hilarious, but it doesn't appeal to my desire to uplift the world and not traumatize eleven-year-olds. Maybe I can edit out the worst bits, but the premise is witches who are pretty brutal and terrible, who learn how to be civilized or something. Also dragons! Oh my goodness dragons are fun. I've never written anything with dragons before but I think I am now. Everything dragons.

I would love to be finished with this thing so that I can move on to final edits of Hollow and of course edits of Water Lost, book 3 of Watergirl. That is such a fun book. I mean, that was an obsessive writing session more than any other book, just sucked me in and spit me out in three weeks. I feel kind of like a victim where my stories are concerned, just dragged around into these weird worlds without any kind of say, but I do edit them. A lot. You're welcome.

Other news... Hm.

Nothing much, just writing Darkly Sweet like these people are beating me with weasels. I have no other words/brains for anything else. It's a good thing laundry takes so little brains.

For my mother, because she wanted to see my happy birthday to me outfit, got the linen jacket done. Yay! Also the red riding hood felt doll ...
