Shorts on the Line (a summer sewalong)

I know, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? We have spent the past few weeks trying to get as much done in our new house as we can before we moved over the weekend. There is still a lot of unpacking and finishing the bathroom to do. Not to mention moving the last of our belongings out of our loft and garage in the old house.

But hey, check it out, this great sewalong is coming up! Is that MY name down there on the guest posts list? Eek! I tell you what, you carry on reading all the details, and I will go and clear a path to my sewing machine and start sewing some shorts!
