It was hot today for the Midwest
Ginger Jeans that I still have to blog

I wear a lot of me-mades each day of the year, but during me-made-may I find myself wearing things I might have forgotten about or wouldn’t wear each day.  I like that it pushes me to do that but it is stressful at times. 

Happy Sewing! I hope your Me-Made-May is going smoothly!

Week 1:Me Made May 2017

My goal this year is to wear more dresses and skirts during MMM. However, it’s been so darn cold here that it makes it uncomfortable for me.  Let’s hope it warms up as May continues on.

I was picking and canning some Rhubarb today.  I canned up some Rhubarb BBQ Sauce.  Our plants are going crazy and I have plans to can some Jam, pie filling, and cocktail as well. 
Jalie Hoodie (3355); It’s still a bit chilly here and I wish I hadn’t packed all my long sleeve dresses and tees away. 
Jalie Yoga Pants (3022) in navy; I made these in March 2017.  I would live in yoga pants everyday if I could.
Pisces tee I made with my Silhouette Cameo.

And there is my first week of Me Made May for 2017!  I share daily on Instagram if you want to follow me there; I'll continue to post on the blog weekly, too.

 I wish it would warm up around here so I can wear more of my skirts.  Wisconsin weather is really fickle in spring.  Anyway, I have been enjoying seeing everyone's me-mades too!  It is very inspirational.
