You Were Made For Me

Sorry, been away a while.  Just a very quick post to say I've signed up for Me-Made-May '13.
Last night,  I was searching the web to find info on fabric shops in Walthamstow, and happened upon Zoe's blog HERE and read about a challenge she is organising, whereby you pledge to wear handmade garments/accessories every day for the whole of May.
Now,  I have been dressmaking/knitting/refashioning for about a hundred years, or at least since I was 11 - but for some reason the things I make largely seem to hang in my wardrobe, unworn.  Even my Mum says "I never see you wear the things you make".  So, this morning I made a decision to sign up and actually wear them.
'I, Gill of Vintagerockchick, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade item each day for the duration of May 2013'

Hopefully, whilst I doubt I will post daily, I do intend to at least partly document the results of this challenge by taking some not-too-hideous photos and posting them on here. 

More later about what I've been making, and doing since we last chatted.

  1. Good luck Gill, I'm sure you will manage it.

  2. Good luck! I would more than likely fail in the first two days!

  3. Awesome to have you on board Gill. I'm really looking forward to seeing the results of your hundred years of stitching! xx
