Me Made May Days 27, 28, 29 and 30!
Gosh! Doesn't time fly when the weather is warm. Just a quick run through on what I have been wearing for what will probably be the only balmy days this season!
On the 27th I wore charity shop shorts together with a Me Made butterfly brooch. The t-shirt was tie-dyed by my sister and it has 'Jellyhead' printed on it. Jellyhead was a Viz comic book character when we were students and even though my sister gave it to me several years after as a present it is still now fifteen years old! I realise I am giving the impression that I never throw anything away!
Actually this picture on the 28th shows that the previous statement is true. Here I am wearing my Me Made fifteen pence dress made partly out of old damaged pillowcases. My friend gave me the sweet pea plants and I have used branches cut off my neighbour's tree as supports - the water I am using is naturally from a water butt! The bracelet is fairly new and is, again, a hand made gift from my sister (yes - I know I am spoilt!).
On day 29 I decided to tackle the fact that I have been a little short of Me Made clothing to be able to wear something different every day for a month and I am therefore sewing a new pair of trousers. The only Me Made item today is the felt flower brooch.
However, I saved the felt flower brooch to end all felt flower brooches for today! Sadly I did not make it but was lucky enough to be given this hand made wonder by my good friend Lisa Jones. I have teamed it with the refashioned skirt and Me Made headband worn previously in the month.
I had an amazingly girly day today as I was invited to have a lovely complimentary hand and arm massage with my 'birthday girl' friend also called Lisa.
Ooops, I may have made a little purchase!!!!
