Me Made May: Days 19-24

It's been a week.

Sewing has been keeping my spirits up and I have another creation to share later this week, but there's just still been a lot going on.  It's alright, I'm dealing with it, and just trying to make time to be crafty.

I did have some exciting moments though! I got my new/first serger in the mail!  The picture is from it being literally unpacked from the box, sitting on the floor, while I tried to figure out where I was going to put it.  I was totally intimidated by it, but after watching some YouTube videos, I was not only able to use it with the default threads, but also rethread it with my own.  I'm still so impressed with how fast it is! And efficient! I actually can't wait to make more garments because of it, and to go back and look at some of my other (messier) pieces and see if I can clean them up.

Anyways, here's what I wore this week:

Day 19
What I Wore: My new Ceylon
What I Did: We were godparents to my nephew so we went to the ceremony then to lunch with the family

Day 20
What I Wore: Plaid circle skirt with a store-bought sweater
What I Did: Work! Was in training all day so I just needed to be comfy

Day 21
What I Did: More work

Day 22
What I Wore: My Main Squeezebox Outfit
What I Did: Last day of training. Woohoo!

Day 23
What I Wore: Tree of Life dress
What I Did: Yeah, it was a really stressful day. I literally bolted out the door so took just a second to snap my photo. Was not ready for a smiley-face at the time.

Day 24
What I Wore: My first Rooibos
What I Did: Worked from home.  I think I actually wore sweats during the day then changed into this in the afternoon.


  1. I am going to buy myself this serger for my birthday which is two weeks away and I can't wait. I've heard nothing but good things about this serger! Cute outfits :-)

  2. Loving the MMM pics and congrats on your serger I am so jealous ;0) Your gonna have such fun.

  3. congrats! I have had mine for a little over a month now and it has really changed the way I sew. So excited for you!

  4. Serger!!! So cool! I want one too, will you let me know if you like it? I have a Brother sewing machine and if I get a serger I will probably get a Brother :)

  5. I am "sew" envious of your serger. I've wanted one for a while but it isn;t in the budget until at least next Christmas. Your outfits look great - especially the plaid skirt, the Ceylon and the Tree of Life dress. Actually, I really like the "main squeeze box" outfit too.

  6. lovely week of outfits xx

  7. Your outfits are lovely, as always :) That serger is causing some serious envy in my soul - I think I may give in this summer and purchase one myself!

  8. just found your blog!! Love seeing the Colette patterns made up, got my first order in the mail last night and can't wait to sew something up!
