Anyway, by the time you read this I'll be on vacation! I'm heading down to the California desert to visit my family for two and a half days of hiking, dogs, coffee, and perhaps some sewing or knitting. I'll at least try get the Archer buttonholes finished!
- 5/4 - MM running shirt; worn on a hike on San Bruno Mountain. I think this is swimsuit fabric, but it works really well as a running/hiking shirt. Please pardon the hat hair and squinting.
- 5/5 - MM hat and mitts, Mom-Made scarf; worn to Flora Grubb for coffee and plant viewing with a friend. I had planned to wear my new scout tee today, but the weather turned chilly and I knew I wouldn't be taking my coat off at all, so it was a good day for handmade knits.
- 5/6 - MM pants; worn to work. I just finished these pants but haven't blogged them. They are okay. They're actually perfect when fresh out of the wash, but get all baggy with a little wear. Unfortunately if I take them in any more I won't be able to step up on a bus. :/
- 5/7 - MM top; worn to work. This top is another recent unblogged garment. It's also okay. Actually, it would be pretty good if it didn't feel like I am actually wearing a plastic bag when it's at all warm. It was entirely inappropriate for day one of a huge mailing for my department, but what can you do when it's MMM and you need something to wear with pants?
- 5/8 - MM top; worn to work. This outfit worked way better in my head than in real life. It was comfortable for the mailing activities though! I still love my floral scout tee, but omg this fabric wrinkles like crazy.
- 5/9 - MM nothing. I did hem the jeans, though, which was actually some of the hardest sewing I've done in a while! Anyway, I could have worn something me made today but I don't want to. I've got a seven hour drive ahead of me, and, well, basically I just don't want to. I know this totally goes against the point of the challenge, but clothes can affect my mood and this outfit is making me happy. MMM can wait until tomorrow. I don't know how the rules work though - should I not have taken a photo today, just left it out? I included it to document my personal experience with the challenge, which includes a conscious decision to "fail," but I don't want to be misleading or anything.
