Me Made May 2014 - 2nd week ...And More

I would like to extend a huge, sincere THANK YOU to all of the wonderful messages left on my post about Kitten.

We had her cremated on Sunday and we are slowly coming to terms with her not being around. I need to put away her bed, toys and food dishes because I keep seeing them and getting sad! :-(

So no, I haven't sewn anything new for me. However, I have been working on the S1699 dress for my daughter. It's almost done. I realized I need to line the skirt and beyond that just finishing the neckline and hemming.

I decided to take in the bodice a bit (7/8" side seams) and it fits beautifully now - review next week!
Then, this sweet girl got me a great Mother's Day gift:

The mascara is an inside joke :)

Hancock had a 15% off purchase coupon soooo I had to go. I HAD to.

1 yd poly (silky) geometric print
1.5 yd striped black knit
1.5 yd bright(!) yellow knit
2 yds grey lightweight sweatshirt fleece
2.5 yes light/mid weight denim
Tomorrow is day 14 of MMM and I decided what I'm wearing tomorrow...but I won't have a chance to blog again until the weekend most likely. Work is crazy and my energy is low :/ I'll probably finish her dress this week and I really hope to trace a jacket from the April Burda mag.

Day 8: S2192 sweatshirt, KS 3115 yoga pants and my hand knit socks
Day 9: B5908 pants, S2255 top, M6844 cardigan
Day 10: M6844 cardigan and S2061 pants
Day 11: Burda 11/2012 top
Day 12: S2700 pants
Day 13: Maria Denmark kimono tee and KS 3115 yoga pants
Day 14: S2594 top

  1. Love your M6844 cardigans. I might have to give this shorter length a go.

  5. The dress for your daughter looks beautiful! I just searched out the pattern and I agree with Beth, the cover does NOT do the style any justice!

      It's actually a really pale mint. I hope to capture the color accurately in pics when it's finished!
