Me-Made-May ’16 Pledge

Can you believe that May is just a few short days away? That means that it is almost time for Me-Made-May, the month-long event when the sewing community is encouraged to wear and celebrate handmade clothing. It just so happens that the Lizzy House Dress Contest overlaps with Me-Made-May, so I am going to combine the two. Here is my pledge for this year:

“I, Rachel of and @snippetsofsweetness, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '16. I endeavor to wear at least one me-made garment each day for the duration of May 2016, and to sew a new dress for the Lizzy House Dress Contest.”

As in previous years, I plan to post weekly summaries on this blog, and daily photos on Instagram. Speaking of previous years, here are my photo mosaics of Me-Made-May ’14 and Me-Made-May ’15, since blog posts are more fun with photos.

March 2016 in Review

Hooray for March! I am extra excited about spring’s arrival this year and the increased hours of sunlight. More sunlight means more energy and more energy means more making! Last month, I managed to finish two Wembley Cardigans, a Myrtle Dress, and a navy Triple Luxe Cowl. It might not seem like it, but I am still quilting! In March I worked on my Chaos Quilt blocks and hope to have the top together soon. Also, I finally learned to knit, which is exciting. I'm quite happy with what I accomplished in March, and am brimming over with ideas for what to make next. Here’s to spring!
