I'm finally learning how to sew! After all the chaos of moving back to Maine and having our housing plans completely fall through (thanks, mum) my girlfriend and I are renting a room at a friend's house. Alisha's parents are introverts like Kalli and I, as is Alisha, so when we're not all communicating by squeaks, grunts, and odd keening noises we're Getting Stuff Done. Alisha's mum (Jodi) knows how to sew and she's been showing me how to take doll shirts and stencil them into patterns. I made a shirt on prototype linen yesterday and it fits Operetta perfectly! (We're using Operetta's sleeveless top as a starter pattern because it's fairly basic. Next up is Draculaura's newsie shirt with sleeves.) Excitement!
Besides sewing I entered the Monster High Halloween Photo Competition
. I missed out last year by like, a day, which was completely ridiculous. :| I'd hoped to have a better photo to enter but I wasn't able to get my doll things out of storage until the 18th and that left the 19th and today. It's been raining since Thursday evening so Frankie's lucky her photo happened outside. I hope people like the photo anyway.
Dead Tired Clawdeen is en route to me, as is a teeny package with outfits from Taiwan. I can't wait for them to arrive (more things to sketch patterns from)!
