Anyway, back to the sewing. If you are interested in learning how to do some basic sewing and would like to make a coaster like this then come over to the Down to Earth Simple Living Forums, join up and we will help you to achieve your goal of learning how to sew in 2016.
There are a number of members who are just beginning their sewing journey and you will have plenty of company so there is no need to feel inadequate. The more experienced members can answer your questions and help you to make your first work of art.
The motto for the year on the forums is
2016, it's time to make a change
This year I hope to improve my crochet, knitting and sewing skills so come and join us.
My daughter, son-in-law and the grandchildren are enjoying their time at the beach before heading back to the Outback. Today was a really rainy day on the coast as well as here so hopefully tomorrow it will be fine again and the children can go to the beach and enjoy the sun and surf. I am not sure if the highway is open to the North West but I sure hope it is unlike their trip back during the floods of 2011 which was a bit of a nightmare for this Nanna until I heard they were back home once again.
We have had some good rain and it has been wonderful to hear that some of our drought stricken areas in the west have also received some but it is not enough to break the drought unfortunately as almost 90% of Queensland is drought declared. We seem to alternate between drought, floods and cyclones so never a dull moment if you are a Queenslander. LOL!
Have a great week everyone and don't forget to come and join us on the Down to Earth Simple Living Forums if you would like to meet a great group of people who will help you if you want to be more organised, be a better cook, learn different crafts, prepare for emergencies, make your own soap and the list goes on. You would be most welcome. See you there!
