Me-Made-May 2012!

Hello everyone. I know I've dropped off the face of the planet for like two months. Be at ease, I am all right. Sort of...

Long story short (or at least as short as I can make it), Sir Knight and I decided to end things and I completely fell apart. I didn't want to eat, I didn't want to socialize, and I certainly didn't want to sew. We are trying to stay friends but he decided to take another lady less than 30 days after the split and I fell apart again. Blogging really hasn't been on my priority list. Until now.

I'm finally back and have the perfect thing for jump-starting my blog. As some people may know on the blog, 'So Zo, What Do You Know?' has her 'Me-Made-May' challenge coming up and I have decided to participate. It's the perfect thing to help distract myself from thoughts that make me want to either throw up, scream, or drive all the way back to Wyoming just to punch someone in the face. So here is my pledge:

'I, Courteney of Apples of Avalon, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '12. I endeavour to wear one handmade garment each day for the duration of May 2012' 

I won't be able to wear any handmade garments to work since I have a uniform shirt and certain pants I have to wear but I can change into something for the bus ride home and there's always going out with friends and coworkers throughout the week too. So here I go! I have about a month to sew a few more garments to fill the gaps I have. I bought a couple patterns off of Etsy (my first Etsy purchases!) that I'm really excited about. I also did some serious fabric shopping a couple days ago (it was a bad idea to shop while emotionally unstable!) that I will share probably tomorrow or Wednesday.

Til next time, everyone. I will be posting with much more often from now on!

  1. Ah Courteney, I'm so sorry to hear that you are going through a tough time. Really glad that this challenge has come along at just the right time for you to get your teeth into. Make sure you get heaps of socialising in, even if sometimes you might not feel like it. Forgive me for writing things that you no doubt already know, but being with friends will really help you mend quicker. Happy sewing and all the best
