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 fifth update of my progress and the completion of the challenge.

What: The Cream Cowl Renfrew
Where: To work. I dressed up again since I knew it would be a long day, and I wanted a little boost. I left work just after midnight!

Where: To work and then to pick up my husband from the train station. He’d been away all week for work, and it was so very nice to see him again.

The End Reflections:
We made it to the end of Me-Made May ’12! Looking back at the month, I wore most of my handmade garments once with a few exceptions that either didn’t get worn (mostly because they’re either too fancy or don’t wear well) or got worn multiple times (mostly because they’re my favorites – Jalie Jeans, Minoru, Renfews). I also wore a weeks worth of self-screened T shirts, which is at least less than last challenge. I was even able to get a family member to join me three times this month – the fever is spreading!
I participated in the Flickr group, but not as regularly as I wanted. Deadlines at work got the best of me, and I found myself only making the time to upload photos from my camera once or twice a week. Still, just as last time, the support from the other participants was very encouraging. Here’s a screen shot of my MMM’12 Flickr set; my handmade month in all of its glory.
I’d call this month a success. For those of you who also participated in MMM’12, what are your reflections on the success of the past month?
