Hello, old friend! It’s been a while.
It’s that time of year again…..Me-Made May! I’m going to try to wear a me-made item every day, but I’m honestly not too sure how it’s going to go. A lot of my handmade wardrobe is on the casual side because I wasn’t working at my peak sewing time, and was working in an academic lab before that (all jeans and bleach stains…). Now I work in an office and need to look at least a little professional every day.
The other confounding factor is that I’ve felt a bit low on sewing mojo lately, for a few reasons. The main one is that I’ve done something terrible and ungodly to my back. It now hates me and occasionally sends shooting pains into my right leg, like lightening bolts into my butt cheek. It is locked in a battle of will against my chiropractor. Time will tell who wins the war. In the meantime, sitting for too long hurts and at the end of the day I’m too exhausted to do much more than flop on my couch.
So this year, my two Me-Made May goals are; 1) to find ways to mix my handmade wardrobe into my work wardrobe, and 2) to get back to the sewing machine. With that in mind, I’m making the following pledge:
‘I, Eileen of Crafty Little Secret, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’15. I endeavour to wear one me-made item each day for the duration of May 2015 and to finally finish my half-sewn dress pants’
I’m going to take daily photos and post a weekly update of how I’m doing.
Happy May everyone!
