Before I go any further, I have to thank Zoe for being such a great hostess and sharing her beautiful baby with us! Then words cannot express how kind, supportive, encouraging and just plain 'nice' the international group of ladies were. As a newcomer to sewing garments for myself, I loved to see what others around the world wore each day, 'meeting' new friends, getting to know one another through Flickr as we shared each day of our life during this one month. It was a powerful experience for me.
It was also timeconsuming, though I enjoyed every single minute. Photographs were taken almost everyday, with accompanying posts written in this blog, as well as for the Flickr description. New to Flickr, that was a huge learning curve but by the end of the month had figured out the html to write my links in a more correct way, as well as how Flickr feeds and comments works. It seemed a more informal 'conversation' than a blog, so found it easier to write comments and reach out.
By the end of the month I was in Charleston, SC helping my mother-in-law deal with some health issues, so I missed the last few days of the month. But that's 'okay' and I feel that this entire month was such a positive experience I'd more than accomplished my goals.
I love being a part of such a creative, talented, inspiring sewing community and feel I am ready to expand my sewing skills with more complex garments and continue to sew my own clothes!
Loved seeing your mix and matches! I should try to do that more. And I enjoyed your photos, I think it's brave of you to venture outside and take photos on your own. I will be keeping up with you on your blog and look forward toseeing your new makes :) Hope your mother in law is much better now.ReplyDelete
I loved seeing your mixes and matches too and getting to 'meet' you through mmm14! Look forward to seeing your new makes too. Thank you.Delete
You did manage a very good Me Made Line Up - and each outfit looks quite different. I love your photography as well.ReplyDelete
Thank you Sarah Liz - it was difficult at times, but that forced me to look at each piece in a different way. I just do not have many me-made items..... yet. That's why I turned to focusing on the photography and learned so much there - too!Delete
I admire your sewing skills and the time that it takes to do all this!!! Very Nice! NancyReplyDelete
Thank you Nancy!Delete
What a great looking collection of outfits! It's fun. To be able to see them in a group like this - you have a distinctive style that suits you very well indeed.ReplyDelete
You know Nancy, I'd not looked at the collage through 'style' eyes, but you are right. What's interesting, is when I wear my most basic me-mades, skirt and Kirsten kimono tee like Day 22, that's when I receive the most compliments. Thank you ever so much for pointing that out! So, guess I need to make more basics.... sounds good to me!Delete
Lisa what beautiful me mades you have.. You did a great job getting photos for the month.. The getting photos, is my reason for not joining.haReplyDelete
Love how you mixed it up.. Hope your MIL is doing better..
Thank you so much Judy! and yes, my MIL seems to be doing better so I've been able to be at home - my most favorite place in the world! :)Delete
