I managed to dredge up 4 things to wear today – including a couple of things that I haven’t worn for a while. Still in my messy office, but I might find a more interesting background at the weekend.
I am really liking the whole underpinning philosophy of the MMM’13 – good sustainability principles and it is keeping me out of the shops (well clothes shops, I am pretty much haunting Spotlight!). Today, the woman who started MMM exhorted us to start using our stashes, so, as I have several different types of stashes (wool, fabric, buttons, decorative stuff, and on and on), I am going to work on this.
Today’s outfit consisted of:
StyleArc Linda pants, fabric a gift from StyleArc
StyleArc Susan top, fabric from Potter’s half price remnant sale
Infinite loop wrap from Ravelry, yarn from Dairings, Melbourne
Necklace knitted on my Brother knitting machine from wire and woolly nylon, own design.
After I had submitted my photos to Flickr I realised that the theme for Friday’s is “water”. Oh well, missed this Friday. Not sure what I’m going to wear next week to meet the theme – wellies??
One of the really fun things about this challenge is all the strangers who tell you how talented you are (if only they knew!). It’s amazing how thrilling it is when someone adds my photo to their favourites! The community aspect of this is quite awe inspiring and I am really enjoying chatting to total strangers.
