I was back to work this week after my luxurious week off at home. The concluding event was a tea party I threw to celebrate with my family. I finally had a second occasion to wear my flower girl dress! It had a lot to talk about with our tablecloth.
And, thanks to everyone who commented on the birthday giveaway! I’m excited to announce the winners of the shibori giveaway!
Peach habotai scarf: Shivani
Magenta charmeuse yardage: *WISHER*
Blue/coral charmeuse yardage: Gingermakes
Congratulations to the winners! Please email me at morganelle [at] gmail [dot] com with your mailing information and I will send out the shibori!
On another topic, I’m getting pretty excited about Me-Made-May 2013. I’m having fun thinking about Zoe’s “Points to consider” section, about how Me-Made-May is supposed to take you out of your comfort zone in a creative way. I’m not quite sure what that means for me yet; I’ve done it twice now and both times it’s been truly challenging to wear stuff I’ve made every day without too many repeats. I donate clothes that don’t get worn so even after 3-4 years of sewing my self-made wardrobe isn’t huge. Once I figure out the direction I want to talk (which could end up being the same as previous years), I will post it here.
For those of you who plan on participating, are you thinking about mixing it up this year?
