It's been quite a crazy week. We're still visiting family in upstate NY and I was going to post photos of my "Me Made Vacay" right about now, but then something exciting happened. Anyone heard of the Super Online Sewing Match (formerly known as the Super Online Sewing Bee) sponsored by Sew Mama Sew? Yeah? I'm one of the 10 contestants!
first challenge is to draft and sew a skirt. Nice! I have some experience with this, so the fact that I can't truly start the garment until the day before the due date (uh, yikes) is making me only slightly crazy.
In other news, my "Me Made Vacay" has been a pretty good success. I packed maybe 4 purchased items of clothing (and cycling clothes, of course, since we shipped our bikes)....but all other tops, bottoms and dresses were made by me! We're heading further east to visit more family today, so here's some photos of what I've been wearing to catch frogs (top here, capri pants here).
We're headed to Boston today and then back home, so I'll catch you all on West Coast time!
