The past few days, have been over 40.  Bleergghh.  There’s been quiet hours watching the cricket underneath the aircon, escaping to the beach in the afternoon as well as hanging out while the boys tweak the boat at the yacht club.  What’s the weather like where you are?

Recently Updated3I should have known better.  Three hot kids.  Mum wanting to take a group shot.  Wasn’t going to happen.  Didn’t happen. Shmucks. There are twenty other failed shots. 

this is sew weekly {something new for 2013}

The plan is to get my sewing machine, overlocker or needle and thread out once a week.  No need to complete a project every week, but to make a conscious effort to sew.  Sew weekly.  So….. this is sew weekly. And you can follow along.  No pressure. There’s a few of my instagrammy pals interested in joining in, so it’s going to be fun to see what they come up with!  I’ll be posting a this is sew weekly post every Thursday. Starting Thursday 3 Jan 2013.

Now, every plan needs a few guidelines. Here they are.

1. Don’t feel pressured to join in every week.

2. Just link the sew weekly image to your post.  On Instagram or Twitter the hashtag is #thisissewweekly.

3. Remember guideline number 1.  This is supposed to be fun.
