Wrap-up

This year threw some new challenges, unusually warm weather for the majority of the month and it highlighted my need for cardigans as the mornings and evenings were cool, but during the middle of the day short sleeves were quite possible. I did cut out a cardigan for our sewing weekend, but first I need to finish the skirt and dress that I started on the weekend which are pretty close to being finished.

It did get very hard this week not to repeat an outfit and I keep saying I need more tops, so why do I sew so many skirts!

Thanks for sharing your journey through Me Made May. I have enjoyed seeing your beautifully coordinated and styled outfits throughout. Very inspiring.

You always do so well with MMM. Congratulations on a great showing of beautiful garments. I am going to have to participate next year as I really missed the process. I learned so much about my wardrobe, and my lifestyle last year.

As usual, you look so pulled together. I think you have a real talent for that Sharon. Thank you for letting us look at your stash. I'm going through the "I feel so guilty" phase that regularly visits me when I look at mine!

I love the handknit - I didn't realize you knitted your own garments as well. Nice to have a peak at your stash, as well as your beautifully co-ordinated wardrobe.

I haven't viewed all of your MMM14 garments yet, but from what I've seen so far, you are tres chic! I love, love, LOVE the cardigan you wore on our Cabramatta outing. The Burda skirt is next on my list, too!

It was a pleasure meeting you! I hope to meet again some day. =)
