Make My Week #17 - PJ party!

When I did my mad men challenge last month I also ended up with new blogs to read. And one of the new blogs I read (Did You Make That?) has been hosting a PJ sew-along.
What you need to know - yes I wear flannel pjs. Isn't it one of the great mysteries and sorrows of the world that one doesn't look anywhere near as adorable in one's flannel PJs as one feels?

The singlet is from my draws and I sewed the doily on. Flannel was a hand-me-down from a mother's stash.... (call it an estate stash if you will).
Cost $0 all from my stash -whoop! Thanks Karen for such a fun challenge. Check out other ladies in their very respectable and non-inappropriate pjs from 28th of April - here. Apologies for the 'come hither' stare I'm not much of a bedroom model - these were the best of a very average bunch!

Karen also asked everyone to say what was on their bedside table so in light of sharing:

But Is it Real by Amy Orr-Ewing - a great book for people who have intellectual and other objections or questions about Christianity as a faith for intelligent rational people.
How to Keep the YOU in Mum by Karyn Riley - a book I will be reviewing at some point this year.
The latest Burda magazine - quite keen to make this one -

and a book from the library -  Love Vintage a passion for collecting fashion - totally gorgeous book full of beautiful pictures of clothing through the 1900s - tempted to add it to my book wish list.
What are you reading at the moment?

Does this count as my clothing make for the month? I think so!

Look at you I your new pjs! I loved this line: "one of the great mysteries and sorrows of the world that one doesn't look anywhere near as adorable in one's flannel PJs as one feels." So observant, so true! x

Haha - bet M loves your come hither look! I personally love flannel and I don't care how nanna that is. I love the wild pattern, it offsets any possible frump factor.

What a range of reading. I have The Hunger Games (not started yet) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on my nightstand at the moment.

I agree $0 Yay! PJs are really all day wear don't you think?

Miriam said...

Yes The Hunger Games is getting a lot of hype I'd like to know what you thought

Jess B said...

I totally agree with the feeling more adorable than you look in flannels! I have some awesome red 'punk cat' flannel pj's - so comfy, so ridiculous! Love the colours of yours. AND I think you would look completely amazing in the dress from the Burda magazine. A-maz-ing! What colours would you use?

Fay said...
