... but we are just past the half-way mark for Me-Made March... yay!
When I've already taken a picture of myself in this dress, and what's more wearing these very same sandals with it too, it's so sorely tempting to just use that same photo for the MMM flickr group, but I guess that is not the point, hmmm? That would be cheating, and someone might notice. Anyhoo, I'm happily getting used to packing my camera in the backpack for the morning walk now so taking the daily photo is not too bad. But just ask me in a week...
I've made myself some new little things lately and am dying for the weather to cool down enough so I can show them off here... yes, new things! (I just know my Mum will tut-tut at that one...!) but remember how last month I pledged to make ten things using up my fabric collection before I was allowed to buy new fabric? well I have made seven new garments since. That 7 includes Craig's shirt, the Japanese cotton dress, the matching shorts and the yellow shorts; all of these I have shown here... there are some other things, and I'm currently putting the finishing touches to an army jacket for me; thick khaki cotton and with lots of tabs with big shiny snaps and a fur lined detachable hood, and I'm so disgracefully proud of it!! But I just can't show it off here yet because when I've had to put it on during construction to check how it's fitting etc, as well as when I've worn it to show my family, I've started to expire from heat overload within seconds so off it comes. But I'm pretty excited about wearing it for this winter.... stay tuned...!
