Thoughts on Me-Made-May
Clinton and Stacy would be very dissappointed in me! I didn't take the pledge to participate in Me-Made-May. In a way I feel kind of bad about it. Usually I don't participate in things because I arrive late to the party, if you will. By the time I know about the sew-along, or the contest, I don't have enough time left to plan and execute. But that isn't the case this time.
My daily uniform is jeans and a T-shirt. Not even a nice one - more like the kind you might wear while you wash the car or give the dog a bath. I just don't go anywhere to wear my me-made creations. I'm currently a home based person, literally a blogger and a sewist by trade. The children are all teens (or greater, for the ones who don't live at home) so I don't really call myself a SAHM. Disclaimer: This picture isn't me BUT IT COULD BE ME!
I have made many a pretty outfit. Really. I just think wearing them to vacuum and do housework, write, cut more patterns and sew just doesn't work. But I suppose it's not beyond the realm of possibility to look good while vacuuming, right?
