Hemlock Shirt, Me Made May + Stuff

Hey guys! How's it going?

So, I first used this Robert Kaufman speckle jersey knit fabric to make a Toaster Sweater.

I love it and was super happy that I had enough left over to make a Hemlock tee.

The Hemlock is a free pattern from Grainline Studio. It doesn't take up much fabric and is super wearable. And it sews up really quickly, so you can wear it pretty soon after you start think of making it. 

How is your May going? I'm loving Me Made May and seeing everyone's outfits! Though I'm having trouble getting my kids to take good photos of me. They are always dying to take photos, except when I really want them to. I may have to use the tripod more often. 

1. Scout tee and Driftless cardigan, both from Grainline Studio

2. Scout tee and Oceanside pants (Blank Slate Patterns)

3. Linden sweatshirt, lengthened (Grainline Studio)

5. Toaster sweater (Sew House Seven)

5 again, after the day warmed up: Scout tee (Grainline Studio)

6. Reeta midi shirtdress from Named Patterns

7. Addison tank with no collar, from Seamwork Magazine

8. Another Scout tee (yes, there are still more to come)

On Saturday my friend and neighbor was the victim of a surprise birthday party. We brought chips and salsa and the best green chile dip, and Lemonade Sangria. It was so pretty! I bookmarked a few different recipes and combined bits and pieces to make this refreshing, yummy drink:

Sangria Lemonade
1 bottle of Chardonnay
1/2 gallon of Lemonade
2/3 cup of Bacardi Limon
1 green apple, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 cup of strawberries, sliced

Combine above ingredients and refrigerate for at least one hour. 

Add 1 cup of seltzer water and serve. 

FIY, the kids I know always want to drink sangria. If you're feeling generous, make some lemonade with fruit floating in it for the kids.

See you soon!
