May - Me Month?

Post by Happychik » Mon May 24, 2010 9:58 pm

there was talk in the theme/brainstorming thread of May being the month when we do things for ourselves seeing as it was Mother's Day. Don't know if this ended up being confirmed but I did something for myself anyway lol.

I go to a fortnightly craft group on friday nights with my friends, the week after the wedding they surprised me with a special dessert night and they gave me gifts!! Amber had made me this awesome tote bag and the others had given me various knitting patterns along with the yarn. This is the first one I have completed, it only took me a week which is fast for me when it comes to knitting and I'm very pleased with it:

Noice!

I've made clothes for myself. But camera is not behaving, so photos will have to wait until DH can borrow one from school.

That headband looks great on you 8-)

I'm wanting to knit some dyed wool I was given in a swap just last week, but I have so many other things that need made first, not sure how much longer I can hold out though :smt044 I've moved the wool from on top of the TV cabinet to a drawer in my sewing room, in the hope that out of sight out of mind might see some other things get made first, haha, we'll see :wink:

This could also go in the upcyling thread (was it March I think) but since it is for me and I rarely make anything for me I'll put it here.

It started off as an ugly skirt about 2 sizes too small for me.

and ended up a skirt which I just love love love

Image

have been wearing it ever since. :D
