I probably have no business running headlong into this at the last minute, but as long as they'll have me, I'm going to join the group that's doing this. I missed Me Made May and felt bad about it, so I consider it an omen that I stumbled upon SSS on September 1st. Am I too late? I hope not!
For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about:
Introduction to Self-Stiched September.
Participants list. (I'm not there yet, but hope to be soon!)
I, Susan of Darling Petunia, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched September.
I endeavor to wear something handmade or refashioned every day that I work in the month of September.
I hope it doesn't seem too weasley that I'm only pledging to go self-stitched at work. I spend most of my days off lounging about in (homemade) pajama pants anyway, so I decided to leave that off as it's not much of a stretch and not that interesting.
September seems like a good month for me to do this. Most of my self-made clothes are summery, and it is definitely warm enough to continue to wear them through September. If the weather starts to change drastically during the month, I'll have the opportunity to improvise with new combinations and make new items.
Unfortunately, I have had a horrible chest cold for the past few days and am not feeling terribly motivated right now. If I were, I'd delve into my closet and give a rundown of what's there, plan some new garments, and just generally be more EXCITED about this whole thing. That will come. Right now it's all I can do to keep track of when I last took my cough medicine!
