Round up: me made Cuba

I don’t know about you, but I’m terrible for procrastinating. It takes me forever to finish a project. And so one of the few times when I’m really productive is just before I go on holiday.

A holiday gives me a target to aim for, and as I work better under pressure, a clear deadline to get things done. For previous holidays I’ve been at my sewing machine until 1am the night before my flight leaves…

So. Cuba. I’ve wanted to visit for years. As you may know if you follow me on Instagram, I’ve had a difficult year, and so as a treat we booked a two week trip. A mixture of sightseeing and relaxation, in total we visited 5 different places over the two weeks, taking in cities, beautiful countryside and beach resorts.

I decided that I really needed separates for this trip. Some were unfinished projects from earlier in the year, whilst others were some new must haves. And so, without further ado, here are the beautiful me-mades I wore on my trip to Cuba in November.
