I’ve been focused on exclusively sewing (with some smatterings of other things) since I began this blog. That changes now. This is no longer *just* a sewing blog … More Welcome back!

Phew. I’ve been a busy bee and haven’t had the time to post my #MMMay18 round up until now. Yikes! Me-Made-May was a success this year! I pledged to wear at least 3 me-made garments every day. I managed to take outfit posts every day even if a couple are of hanging garments. My undergarments … More Me-Made-May 2018 Round up
