Yesterday it was 35C. Not uncommon here in summer. But it’s not summer. It’s nowhere near summer. It’s only the 12th day of spring. I admit I love the heat but if this is what it is like in September, I’m not looking forward to December. Today the temperature is in the mid 30s again, I’ve been dreaming all day of heading down the coast this weekend.
I am loving the MIP Long Board pattern, so much so that today I whipped out 3 pairs in less than 3 hours. All for Chappy. Being the 2nd boy he gets a lot of hand me downs, so it’s nice to make him something just for him. He also really loves what I make for him, (he’s my favourite…maybe). When I met him after school today he asked “Did you make me those shorts you said you were going to make?” Bless him.
I think they make perfect shorts for the beach. Large front pockets to fill with shells and an ultra comfy rib knit waistband with wide elastic.
I’d love to be going to the beach this weekend, instead I have been roped into this http://www.thestampede.com.au/ Sooo looking forward to it. About as much as sticking a knife through my temple.
All fabric from Spotlight, green one is a Prints Charming drill and the other two are cotton duck.
