MMM final post

Today's a glorious autumn day for the last day of Me-Made May 2013 (red theme).

These poles located outside the main stadium have all the names of the volunteers who made the 2000 Sydney Olympics possible. I'm standing near my name listing.

My three me-mades are:
Silk blouse: Vogue 8118
Skirt: McCalls 8972 This link takes you to the red slub version.
Jacket: Simplicity 4698 also worn on Day 22.
Here is my set of MMM13 and the photography goes from mediocre to not that bad.

So that's it for this year's Me-Made May collection. Over 400 people participated this time so keeping up with everyone was the toughest part. Zo has run this again and done so well. The Friday themes organised by Claudine have been fun.

Meeting everyone in person especially the Perth meetup with CarolynS, Penny and Jenny as well as everyone online has been the best part of this challenge.

Love the red - and how cool is it to have your own pole.

Love your red skirt, it really brightens up the autumn weather and a great finish to MMM 2013.

Wonderful red outfit and topped off nicely with your jacket. You are showing me so many things that I didn't know about Olympic Park and only a stones throw from us.

Kristy said...

Congratulations for getting to the end, quite an achievement. I go to a sydney Olympic Park all the time too but haven't seen these poles before either!

You look lovely! Were you in the Olympics?

I found it exhausting keepng up with half a dozen or so MMMayer's. Thank you for your pics. I am seriously considering joining in next year.

Hi DK,
I was a road crew volunteer.
Valerie, If you've never taken this challenge before, consider it as a personal goal if you can.

Carolyn said...

You've had a wonderful month of outfits, and I love how your red skirt looks in with all the grey there. So cool to have your own pole! It was brilliant meeting you at the beginning of the month, I enjoyed it very much :)

Great photo for the last day of the challenge. You need to do a post telling us about what you did for the Olympics.
This has been a great month and somewhat life changing for me.

Kyle said...

Wow, that is great Maria! Also very cool that you volunteered for the big O!

Vicki said...

Yes, winter is here now...and it is raining. All the more reason to sit in bed with the lappy and a coffee and check out blogs :) Great job on the MMM. Enjoyed looking at your outfits.

Giggles said...

I enjoyed looking at all your outfits, but I think that red suits you particularly well :-)

Janine said...
