May(d) For Me

I have officially declared the month of May May(d) for Me.

I have decided that the only way I am actually going to make the spring / summer clothes that I have (too many) patterns for is to make myself accountable.

Will you join me? Declare May your May(d) for Me month and post your progress on Flicker.

I have tried in vain to create a side button with a link to the Flicker group but don't have a clue how to do so. It's open season ... come up with a cool button (in your free time) that I like and I'll have a goodie bag on it's way to you. Just leave me a comment when you have created one and we'll go from there.

Come on and get your 'tion' ... you know, your motivation, inspiration, and a lot of celebration!

This is a great idea! Count me in. I need some new clothes. I keep saying it, but somehow my closet is not magically building me a summer wardrobe. Bad closet! Guess I'll just have to do it myself. hehe

I suck with the pic thing. But I'll give it a try.

You're too funny! Wish I could join in, but May is pretty much all accounted for... I will try and get some skirts done though!

Need your opinion on something - how do you think the fabrics that you used for your Sophia would look using the Pleated Bag (BTRS) pattern?

I'm really sad - there is nothing I want for me. I think because I still haven't lost my baby weight ( too many Freddos!) I'm just not interested in stuff for me. Thanks for the quilting comment, it's taken me about 7 weeks so far just doing bits here and there it's not easy. Just had a thought, maybe I could make myself some of those lounge pants I 've seen on a few blogs--hmm

You must've read my mind...I'd love to participate! I need a couple spring/summer skirts.

Yeah! I have been wanting to make clothes for a while! This is just what I needed to MAKE me do it! Count me in!
BTW - I made a button for you. Just send me an email and I will send a word attachment on how to place it on your page. Hope you like it!

Perfect idea! I have jammie bottoms that are screaming to be made,just for me, and a blouse pattern that I bought LAST spring and never made. I'm joining you. It's about time to clothe myself!

Why is everything happening in May? Well, the first week is pretty tight (work, garden, Turn the page Tuesday and the first Softball game) but I need some skirts, and I can't find the perfect summer dress ( I iwll have to make it!) Maybe you are right, the only way to actually do it, it's to play with you!! :)
