This May I’m joining Zoe at ‘So, Zo…’ in a challenge to wear something handmade every day for thirty-one days. This post marks the third update of my progress.

What: The Ivory Beignet
Where: To Seattle! I hopped on an airplane and flew up to visit my brother, sister-in-law, and niece since my husband was already up there for work. I caused quite a ruckus in the airport since for whatever reason I decided to opt out of the naked machine. The amazingly unfriendly TSA employees had me wait at the front of the screening line for fifteen minutes as a sign to everyone else that opting out was not really an option. They might as well have put a giant A on my chest. By the time they pulled me aside for my pat down, I was in tears. The whole experience was incredibly dehumanizing. Thankfully, the flight went quickly since I’m really enjoying the book I’m reading right now (Letters in Cardboard Boxes, which I first wrote about here), and then I had a lovely dinner with my family by the water. The green sweater and green Van Gogh in the background were my interpretation of Friday’s green theme.

Where: To explore the San Juan Islands with my family. Though this spot is supposed to be great for whale watching, none passed by while we were there. We did see lots of other sea life, as well as sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas, chickens, horses, and cats.

What: The Family Reunion Dress
Where: To explore the San Juan Islands with me! Here she is dancing to a band of marimbas. Much thanks to my little niece for participating in MMM again!

What: The Betty Jeans and a self-silk-screened shirt: a dog in white on a brown T shirt
Where: To island hop in an attempt to get back to the mainland in time to catch a flight back home with my husband. We hadn’t realized you needed to get to the docks three-and-a-half hours early in order to get your car on the ferry. Our crazy plans almost got us back in time, but we still missed our flight. Thankfully there were seats on the last flight of the day.

What: A self-silk-screened shirt: the elf from the game Gauntlet in blue on a green T shirt
Where: Back to work. And in jeans again.
