I know, I know it’s June already but to be honest May was a bit of a month for me. Life sometimes has a habit of throwing you a curveball and when it does, you just have to get through one very long day at a time. But despite it being a very long month on lots of different levels I did somehow manage to complete my #memademay pledge. So please feel free to pass this by if you’re totally over it by now but just to prove to myself that I managed it despite a lot of hurdles, I still managed it, looking tired and drawn but somehow still trying to smile…
Sunday was a relaxed day at home. I still love this (New Look Vintage I think) top and it works even better with high-waisted jeans. On Monday I dug out my ancient Colette Sencha top. Much though this is a very high neckline for me, the crisp White and fitted style rescues it 😀
Tuesday and another work day required an old favourite: my navy, linen Colette Ginger. A Wednesday evening dinner required my new favourite: my lace, Seamworks Wembley cardigan.
My day off on Thursday called for my second version of the Seamworks Wembley cardigan which I will get round to posting about once I catch my breath. The last day of the working week called for not one, but two me makes (maybe a future goal? ): A Tilly and the Buttons Delphine skirt and Papercut Coppelia Cardigan (must make another of these, I’ve worn it loads but does need something high-waisted underneath).
And finally, amazed that I got through a very long week, my most featured item of #memademay16 my lace Wembley cardigan: easily my favourite and most wearable make to date 🙂 And the change of scenery is my parents’ backyard in North Wales.
One more to go, I promise I’ll get it posted before July. Thanks for keeping with me X.

Made my first Ginger skirt this year and love it. Currently making Tilly and the Buttons Megan dress for summer. Really like the lace cardigan you made and hope those curved balls are more manageable now. Take care xx
Thanks Nikki, love getting my Gingers out every Summer. I really should attempt a Winter version. Good luck with yours, although you can’t go wrong with either of those patterns 🙂
Oh dear, sounds like you’ve had some struggles this month so well done on managing to still focus on MMM – very impressive!
Thanks Sheila, funnily enough wearing the clothes gave me a focus but it was taking the daily photos that was tough. One minute I’m in tears, the next trying to smile for the camera. I think I look ten years older in these shots, life hey!
Rubbish – you look amazingly youthful, as always! Sorry you’ve had a rough time of late though:(
Thank you x
Hope this month is much easier for you… xx
Am so envious you can wear a cardi there, whilst we’ve above 90 & with the humidity factored in it’s too near 100.
🙂 We’ve actually been blessed with some beautiful weather here in the North West. Well, warm for us and that can involve a cardigan over here, though light-weight you understand…
Sorry to hear times are tough, that’s life. But chin up,.don’t let the so and sos get you down. You look fabulous in all your outfits and most glamorous on your night out. The sun is finally shining in the North East! Hoping you have a better June. Xx
Thank you. Can’t believe the beautiful weather we’ve had here. Does cheer you up 🙂
Well done on persevering through me made may. Your outfits look great. I do like that lacy cardie!
Thanks Corrine, it kind of gave me something else to concentrate on. The lace cardie is one of my favourite makes to date and pretty much goes with everything 🙂
Your photos look fab, of you & your gorgeous makes. Whatever has been going on behind the scenes, I hope things start to improve for you soon. Sending love and best wishes from Gibraltar xxx
That’s very kind, thank you. I’m not one to give up easily and making sure I wore me aides every day did provide some distraction. Onwards and upwards… 🙂
Glad to hear that x
Sorry to hear life is treating you badly. I think blogging can be a good focus as such times to help bring a bit of normality in, if you can manage it. Well done and keep smiling when you can xx
Thank you. Yes, I’ll certainly have a lot to catch up on once I’m up and running again. I’m hoping to get my machine out again at the weekend, time to brush off the dust… 🙂
YAY! Look forward to seeing some new makes 🙂 x
So sorry life is tough at the moment – thank goodness for MMM giving us something else to focus on and forcing us to smile for the camera! You look lovely as always. Hope things settle down soon. x
Everyone’s very kind on here, thank you.
Yes, even work providing a welcome distraction at the moment, onwards and upwards…
All lovely makes! I do like the slits and buttons on the first top and the blue… Well you know I love the blue!
Been a while sorry! Been in a divorce stupor, but finally plucked up the courage to dust off my machine again… Looking forward to catching up with what everyone’s been up to on here X.

Probably a little late for this, but many thanks anyway.
