MMM 2012

And the fun continues........It is the end of week one.

On Saturday I wore my Pendrell with the scalloped collar. I was doing nothing in particular after my regular Saturday morning yoga class apart from usual house chores.

In the evening I did get cleaned up and wore my Colette Violet blouse with a pair of plain black pants. We were going round to friends for dinner. My watch strap is self made as well. I attached over 100 square glass beads to a chain for the strap. It closes with a lobster clasp.

Sunday, I ran the Mississauga half marathon, nothing me-made there unfortunately. Then rushed home to change for a charity (early) Mother's Day high tea. A friend of mine is involved with Team Brother Bear, a charity for children with brain cancer.

It was a lovely event and I was honored that both my sons joined me for this. I wore a simple sun dress using an old pattern, New Look 6605 (pattern is probably 12 - 15 years old) that I had made a while ago, that just needed finishing off (hem etc) so I did that on Saturday. Unfortunately the photos taken of me only show the top of the dress, so I took a photo of the dress later in the day!

Today, Monday, I wore my crescent skirt. I felt summery!

In case anyone is wondering, the things on the wall in the background are bead and wire geckos from South Africa.
