Me Made May 2016!

ESP dress by DECADES EVERYDAY collection. 

You might (or might not) be wondering what has happened to me this last year.

Yes, I'm still knitting, and designing. I've also been going back to school and I have started a new career as a teacher.

I still run, although not as much.

I still bake. Again, not as much.

And I still chase after my two beautiful kids.

When I'm not doing all this I try to sleep. Sometimes I sew.

This month, I'm participating in ME MADE MAY 2016. Every year I say I'm going to do this, but this year, I actually think I might be able to pull it off. I do not think I CAN wear something homemade or hand stitched EVERY SINGLE DAY this month...I just don't have enough. But I can swear to wear what I do have on hand: my knitwear (whatever the moths haven't eaten...sigh) my clothing and new crafted items I create during the month.

I pledge that during the month of May I will strive to wear a homemade item at least 3 days a week. I do not quite have enough items to wear everyday, but I will strive to have more days than not.

I also pledge to create at least one new dress or tunic to wear during the month.

I also pledge that time permitting, I will create more things for both myself and my family to wear during the month. I do not want to pledge more, because I want to make sure I can actually complete this challenge.
