Just something I did while I was fucking around in school recently. Not my best sketch of Ray, but whatever, I was going off of memory. My new place is empty and lonely a lot, so I play music all the time and sometimes it does feel like East Bay Ray is my best friend, just in the sense that his guitar playing keeps me company. :)
My damask cat print is entered in this week’s Spoonflower contest. I drew it by hand and I think it came out quite traditional and lovely.

I think I may finally be getting caught up with the outfits I wore over the summer. This was one I wore near the end. The punk thing with the long black skirt seemed a little weird at first, but I think it looks good. The shirt was part of a little mini updating project I did this summer. I cut the graphics of a few shirts that fit me badly and appliqued them to the backs of others. I posed with the haystack at my old place for the contrast.

I feel like I haven’t posted any Monster High stuff for a while, so here is my newest doll. I’ve toyed with getting one of the little sister dolls for a while and I just loved this one when I saw her, so I had to have her. I actually bought the entire wolf family four pack to get her (the other three are for sale if anyone is interested).
I can’t wait to try adapting my patterns to make tiny clothes for her, but until then, I put her in Clawdeen’s outfit because the clothes she came with were fucking awful.
I recently sold another stuffed corgi and this is how he came out. I think he came out adorable and I love making these little guys…so easy and fun. :)

I forgot to post this until now; these are some photos from earlier this summer. I have grown quite found of shooting in dressing rooms because I think the use of the mirror makes things more interesting. I love this little Mexican wedding dress and the way the color matches my shoes. I didn’t want to detract from the embroidery, so I didn’t put much with it.

This is the first in a set of punk prints I’m working on and of course, since I’m loving them right now, I did DK for my first print. I recently got a swatch of it when Spoonflower was doing free samples of “Eco-Canvas”, which is a recycled material. The canvas would make a good backpack, but really, even though it got cut off, I love the print. I really want to buy some yardage. The top image is the original artwork, so you can see the whole thing.

I entered by book fabric in this week’s Spoonflower contest (although it still shows my old white background in the votes). I think it is really lovely and it features most of my favorite books. There are also a lot of other super cool (and kinda geeky) fabrics in the running.

This is another outfit from a while back. That top I’m wearing is the first knit item I’ve ever sewn. The neck came out too big, but I think I know how to fix that on the next one. I’ve been afraid of knits for a long time, but now that I have a machine that overlocks, I don’t know why. It was actually really easy. I’m kinda digging the shorts with the long sleeves too.

These are some shots from a while ago, taken down by the river at my love’s old place. I didn’t really get his direction about the kneeling in the grass thing, but the shots came out so good, so clearly it was a good idea. I love that patched skirt and I’m excited to work on it more with a new toy I bought with my Mom…
