It was the week that I went from fleeces and open fires to sleepless nights and the Summer-weight duvet. We seemed to have skipped Spring entirely this year which is a shame because it’s my favourite season.
Oi, enough with weather already. What did this all mean for MMM’12? It has meant I wore my finished scarf – a variation on Queen Anne’s lace what I invented myself. Curls rather peculiarly in on itself, a little like the DNA double helix. Feels great to have something out of the Queue and around my neck.
I also stepped out in the ill-fated self-drafted shift. I’m STILL not happy with the neckline, and the bias bound shoulder seams are undoing themselves. If it wasn’t for the fact that I love the material the entire thing would be re-homed. Any suggestions? I’m currently scouting ebay for a lacey collar in a style that I don’t despise.
And to the two skirts of the title? Me Made May had made me realise that I don’t have anywhere near enough separates so here are the two skirts that saved me this week:
And to finish good Sirs? A tiny bit of cross-pollination: MMM’12 has made me venture into Flickr, CPD23 has made me venture into Storify. The intersection in the Venn Diagram of library folks and crafty folks is bigger than I thought. If you’ve anything that I can add, let me know.
Here’s to the last few days of Me Made May!
