Now, you're all going to think this coming the day before the start of May is a result of my 'lastminuteitis'...
...but you're wrong.
I PLANNED to leave announcing my Me Made May pledge until today.
Honest, guv'nor. Look, how could you doubt this face?
No, really....ahh whatever. I believe me.
So May starts tomorrow. And these are my plans for May....
I'm in! I joined in Me Made May '12 but dropped out because I was doing the Sew Weekly challenges as well....it all got too much. Plus I'd only been sewing for a short while and didn't have enough garments....well, after a year of sewing at least one garment each week, I do now (possibly too many) and some are sitting unworn because they need a little work/love (and quite a few need pockets adding) so....
'I, Tempest Devyne of fanbloomingtastic.com, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to wear a minimum of one handmade garment each day for the duration of May 2013 and during the month mend or alter me-made garments hiding in my closet so I can wear them more often after May 2013'
I'll be posting pics of whatever I wear each day as part of the Me Made May '13 Flickr group and have a round-up once a week here on Fanbloomingtastic.
Zoe, the host of Me Made May each year reports this year is going to be a record-breaker.
But if I'm spring-cleaning and make do and mending my me mades, I think it's about time I also had a good old spring clean of my Sewing Lair. Which is where this comes in:
This also means finally finishing the TARDIS....more about that tomorrow.
AND as someone at school today mentioned there are only 20 schooldays left of the Arizona school year (we break up for summer hols....translation: summer vacation....on May 29th), it means the days being a lifeguard to Melchett and Goth Child and all the assorted friends who appear each holidays (vacations/breaks) to use our pool is fast approaching. I have one swimsuit that is suffering pilling and chlorine damage...
...I need another, or two, if I am to fulfill my Baywatch fantasies (you should see me jogging around the patio, actually, you shouldn't, not unless you wish to lose your lunch). So I'm also joining in with Katie of Kadiddlehopper and Leila of Three Dress Project's Swimalong Sew Along.
I think I might even need a superhero styled swimsuit...don't you think?
Much more about this in the next few days, weeks.
An hopefully that should keep me occupied. And stop me from overstretching myself as per usual.....though Miss Crayola Creepy's Great Gatsby Sew Along is calling me.....please keep me from it's seductive sirenly calls......please.....
