Oh dear, so much for posting at least once a month.  May 1st and I've not even signed up to up to MeMadeMay 2017 yet.

(I have now..... I, Gill of, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '17. I will wear at least one MeMade item each day for the duration of May 2017 and I will attempt to post photos on my blog as and when I can find a willing photographer!

In an attempt to be more organised (some hope) I've sorted my wardrobe this morning so that the Me Mades are arranged together.  I would say that at least half of my tops and knitteds are made by me, more than half of my dresses and almost half of my skirts - so I should manage to wear at least one least one MeMade every day.
The real benefit of MMM for me is that I get to properly look at my wardrobe and think about what I'm wearing, as opposed to wearing the same familiar things.  I'd forgotten all about this cardigan - although I don't know how, its not exactly a colour that hides itself away.
My neon pink Ramona Cardigan, over a pink and white stripe TATB Agnes top, together with a scarf I made from Nano Iro fabric with purple mini pompom trim.  I'm also wearing MeMade pink/red/orange socks, but you'll just have to take my word for that.  
Had a lovely morning a Sandringham with only a couple of tantrums (Grace, not me) and some practice for Grace's 'nastics' class.  
Walking on the beam ....
followed by some climbing and rope work .....
Grace has all the determination, attitude and personality of Olga Korbut, its just her balance and technical ability that needs work. 
(Incidentally, I realise that's a very out-of-date reference - Olga Korbut is now 61 - who'd have thought it.
We then went back to mine for a small snack and cuddles
I'd planned a day in the garden, but this was much more fun.

Mayday - The Libertines


  1. Looks like you had a great day a d better weather than we did. That's a great colour for a cardi - very vibrant!

  2. I've missed you ( and think possibly my emails are going into your junk folder again). Lovely pink cardi. Looking forward to seeing you later this month xx

  3. I have missed you too. I love this post. The gorgeous pictures of you with the babes, and the glorious pink cardigan. I often think of you - especially when I look for a needle!
