Hello! Right now, I am trying to get through a grad school English majors' recommended reading list. While this is not going badly as a whole, I am currently reading Manhattan Transfer by John Dos Passos, which is (despite the fact that I can understand why it is on the list) one of the most soul crushing books that I have ever tried to get through. I am about halfway done with it, which seems good for two days of reading, especially since I read two other books on the list earlier this week, but at the moment, I need a break from the constant suffering, so instead, I'm posting here!
Today, I have pulled three more cross stitch sprite patterns out of my random selection jar, which was explained in my last post. I think that there are 58 different ones in there now, and I've tried my best to shuffle it, so hopefully, I have gotten a decent variety of them.
The first of today's three patterns is of Miaka, from the anime Fushigi Yugi, which is actually a pattern that just got added to the jar tonight! I don't know too much about Fushigi Yugi, since I've only seen a couple of episodes of an OAV, but made a pattern set for it that I'm very happy with. Miaka is probably the least detailed and fancy pattern in the set, since the boys almost all have frillier clothes and more elaborate hair than she does, but I still think that this pattern ended up being cute.
I feel refreshed and properly prepared to finish the chunk of 1920s experimental fiction I'd wanted to get through before bed, so I am now done posting here! I hope that you guys liked today's patterns, and will be back with more of them soon. Have a nice weekend!
