"I, Jenny (www.euromouse.blogspot.com), sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '14. I endeavour to make at least 4/5 items in the Perfect Pattern Parcel #1 or at least 3 new summer garments; and wear one handmade piece of clothing each day for the duration of May 2014"
...I didn't take into account that I was
a) camping one weekend (even managed to get some climbing in, and introduced our friends to the lovely climbable rocks in the Eifel National Park in Germany...)
b) going to Belgium for another weekend, awesome family weekend in a lovely house, complete with canoeing, and a trip to Spa
c) going to Berlin for another: Love Berlin... Especially with friends visiting us from Canada!
d) Leaving for a week to Kefalonia, Greece, on the last weekend....
and e)had enough hand made clothes, yet most shirts I made had long sleeves....
Basically, lots of excuses, but I didn't make enough hand made clothes to make it for the month, and didn't have time to make any new clothes.
I did however sew madly in the spare minutes of the busy month of May. I sewed one birthday gift bag/purse, and 4 beach bags for the girls on our trip to the island of Kefalonia!!! I had to test them all out before we left....:
Here's one of my bags in action in Kefalonia:)
May was a marvelous month... But not entirely ME MADE enough.... There's always next year!!!
