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 second update of my progress.
May 6, 2013
What: The Stripey Renfrew
Where: To a tough day at work. And, that’s about all I want to say about that!
May 7, 2013
Where: To work up until track practice. A good hard run always does a body good!
May 8, 2013
What: The Crazy Bow Top
Where: To work and then to a Cinco de Mayo party that had actually become an Ocho de Mayo party.
May 9, 2013
Where: To work and then to another Thursday night Downton Abbey marathon with my neighbors. We’re now finally half way through season two!
May 10, 2013
What: The Cream Cowl Renfrew
Where: To work and then a night of homemade pizza, movies, and moving chores. I’m showing off my tiny sewing corner for this week’s Friday theme. It’s become a lot less colorful since my wall of thread and my bulletin board have already been taken down and packed up. I can’t wait to see what kind of sewing space I’ll be able to create once we get to Seattle. Our apartment will only be slightly larger, but it will have a second bedroom, so I’m hoping we’ll be able to turn it into a nice library/office/sewing room. Just a few more weeks!
May 11, 2013
Where: To a day at the beach with co-workers that served as both a baby shower for two colleagues whose wives are coincidentally due on the same day and a farewell party for me. Though it was a beautiful day, it was overcast and chilly, which meant the jacket was a necessity. Also, if you’ll notice, I’m a bit pink. Despite putting sunscreen on twice, I got way too much sun.
May 12, 2013
Where: To a backyard brunch with friends to celebrate Mother’s Day. Happy day to all!
Reflections on the week:
- I might as well be repeating Tilly’s One Week One Pattern challenge with as many Renfrews as I wore this week! What can I say – it is a favorite pattern of mine. In fact, I plan to make another bow neck Renfrew from an even crazier silk jersey I just got from Mood!
- I love painted fabrics.
