What I Learned From Me Made June
1) That I will never be a model. Every time I had to take a picture of myself I felt absolutely ridiculous. I worried about where to put my hands and how bad my posture was going to be. Oh, and add to that the fact that I tend to make crazy faces in pictures and you see why I won't be quitting my day job any time soon.
2) That my husband is awesome. He never once rolled his eyes when at the end of a long day I told him "hey, I need you to take a picture of me." In fact, he would often reply by shouting "MMJ!" Now that's a good man!
3) I should make more of an attempt to make items that I will actually wear. I love making dresses but let's be honest - I don't wear a whole lot of dresses. There are about three months out of the year here that are actually dress-wearing weather. Plus I work in a job that requires constant standing up and kneeling down in front of little kids and I really rather not expose myself to the children. As a result, I wear a lot of pants and I've realized that I should probably focus more of my sewing efforts on tops and other items that I actually wear (but dresses and skirts are just so darn cute!).
4) While there are definitely things that I've made that I never want to see again (I'm talking to you, too large denim skirt), there are actually quite a few things that I actually like (hello, my lovelies). Which, of course, means that my sewing efforts have not been a total waste - and to that I say hurrah!
