Autumn hit Canberra with full frostbitten force at about, oh, 4 pm yesterday afternoon, right at the end of our lovely four-day Easter holiday weekend. About 50 kms south of us there was snow. SNOW, people!
Then, this afternoon, as I looked briefly out the window at work across the local parks to Mt Ainslie. I could see that all the trees had changed colour. Just like that.
This year So, Zo... What do you know? is having just one Me-Made/Self-Stitched challenge and this time it's in May. And I've signed up. Which should be interesting (not) for those of us here in Canberra because it will be pretty cold and all I'll be showing off is handmade skirts, and store bought cardigans and tights.
AND DO I HAVE TIGHTS AND CARDIGANS COLLECTIONS! YES I DO!
(Three more arrived from Lane Bryant today and I'm excited.)
This is only part of the cardigan component. And I can't actually open the tights drawer, it's that stuffed full.
This May you'll get to see me wearing wacky cardigans with things that they shouldn't go with AND I WON'T CARE. For example:
Stripes and plaid.
Hearts and scottie dogs
This is today's effort, because Argyle and plaid totally go together and I won't listen to you when you tell me they don't.
Of course it wouldn't me a Me-Made month without me attempting to make some new things and failing. However give me 10 points for dreaming about these particular pieces of fabric being sewn into skirts by the end of May. No deadlines though - we all know I don't do that.
Are you joining Me-Made-May too? You should!
