Me Made May Days 25 and 26

Don't you love it when a plan comes together.

The theme for Friday's photo on Flickr was 'water' and as I went to the beach the day before I didn't think I could justify another jaunt down there on Friday.  I had washing to do!  So I had a plan to take my photo through a glass of water.  I had no idea if it would work so when I saw this image through the viewfinder I was very pleased!

It's the refashioned skirt made out of a jumble sale dress that I wore earlier in the month teamed with a Me Made hand-knitted handbag.  It was very warm but windy on Friday so there was a lot of Marilyn Munroe 'billowing dress' moments on the school run but hey ho!

Saturday was quite a day.  In the morning myself and the family went to see the Olympic Flame processing through the town and then in the evening I indulged in a guilty pleasure.... The Eurovision Song Contest!

I love this show - nowhere else in the year can you see as many bad leather jackets as in this competition!  I wore my favourite Me Made dress for the occasion.  The picture above sees me swirling with the dancers at the opening number - I am a little bit too excited to be cool!

The fabric used for this dress is really cute with trees and ladies taking their dogs for a walk on it.  It is also the only boned dress I have made and, after spending several weeks avoiding it, once I had tackled the boning in the bodice I was so pleased with the result.

Go Engelbert Humperdinck!  Sing.... sing like the wind!

Only a mere three and a half hours after this photo was taken it was confirmed on the screen that the UK came last but one out of twenty six countries.  Still, there's always next year.....!


  1. Your dress is lovely. Well done with the boning.
    My older daughter at uni was going to a fancy dress Eurovision party - yet to see the facebook evidence to comment on her outfit!
