Self Stitched September - HERE WE GO!

Today is the first of September - So that means two things!

It's the first day of Spring.

The daffodils are out, the Xmas lily bulbs are starting to sprout, and soon I'll be able to show you my spectacular view from my sewing machine.

And, it's the first day of Self Stitched September! Woohooo
I'm vowing to wear at least one item I've made myself, every day this month.
I cut out a few pairs of knickers yesterday afternoon, to whip up today, so if I do run short of outers, at least I've got some underwear that was self stitched!! LOL.
This means another trip into the sewing store this morning - oh dear!

And being the first of September, it also means there is 27 days left, until my parents and brother leave for Cambodia for 3 whole months. They return 2 days before Christmas, imagine the silk they can bring home for my Christmas present! haha.


  1. Happy Spring! Self Stitched September sounds like a great idea! Can't wait to see pics of all the gorgeous things you've made.
    It's the first day of spring today, which means only 11 days until Liv's birthday, I had better get some more felt food sorted in the next 11 days! Also got to gt spring cleaning done, going to be very busy!
    Yay that you will be getting lots of beautiful silk for Christmas, imagine all the things you can make!

  2. And to think, just yesterday I was mourning all the green leaves that are turning brown and gold and orange and red! Of course, we're still in the thick of late summer heat and humidity, but there's obvious signs that fall is on its way! :)

    I'm excited about SSS! Doing the wardrobe contest has certainly helped increase my self-made outfits, that's for sure! I just need to take a picture and do my SSS post this evening. :) I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's homemade pieces and outfits!

    Do you plan to post every day or every few days?

  3. Eeek, I'm not sure, can I really be bothered taking a picture each day? LOL. I might do a once a week summary

    Yesterday though it was my pink coat, my top I made last week and a pair of black pants I made earlier this year.

    How will you be posting?

  4. I think I'll post every few days, depending on how busy I am. Otherwise that's a lot of posts to do when I should be working on my thesis. ;)

  5. I'm taking a few seconds after dressing to snap a pic. I put it up on flickr, but I don't think I'll put them all up on my blog. Maybe once a week.

  6. Eekk I don't know if I can be bothered taking a picture after I get dressed every day, am I shocking or what ;)
    Normally I'm a lie in bed until the last possible moment, get up, do breaky etc, shower and then I dash out the door. I'll see if I can motivate myself to do it and make a wee album like Steph.

    Today was a pair of my jeans, a top I made earlier this year and wasn't a huge fan of, knickers I made, and then my coat when I ventured out in the horrible rain! UGH!!!!!

    Thankfully it was a good day for crafting. So I finished my shoes, and finished the 4 pairs of knickers I cut out the other day.
    Pictures tomorrow when the shoes are dry!
