Daria, Jane, and Trent

My pattern of Daria, Jane, and Trent is now for sale in my Etsy shop. I think it turned out quite well, though the magic of backstitch decided "We'll twist these stitches just enough to make Daria look happy!" The universe has a funny sense of humor.

I'm already at work on the Fashion club stitching, and maybe a quarter of the way done already. It will eventually be one big group listing.

I've been so tired in the afternoons lately that I've gotten nothing done because I start falling asleep while I'm stitching. My instinct then is to get up and make lunch because that's involved enough that it wakes me up. I'm very much against napping, since I always feel dreadful or confused when I wake up from one. It's weird though, because sometimes I still can't fall asleep until late, despite barely making it through the afternoon.


  1. Oh my goodness, I LOVED Daria! Great pattern. :)

  2. Maybe your natural sleep pattern is different from the norm. When I started freelancing from home, I discovered that it's normal for me to sleep from midnight until noon and not sleep again until midnight the following day, i.e. 36 hours later. When I worked a regular schedule, I was constantly sleep deprived.

    I know what you mean about naps. Whenever I take one, I wake up feeling groggy and it takes me forever to get going again.

    1. Well, I haven't had a regular schedule for the past 7 years, so I don't think it's that.

      It's more that when I overdo things I tend to just sleep through the next day. Only that last time I didn't think I had overdone anything, so it's a bit of a worry (I already get little enough done, I don't want that ability to shrink further).
