TWiP: talking about the weather

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage

What a great week to be outside! Hot, like summer is supposed to be, but not at all humid like summer often is around here. I’m not generally superstitious, but I just knocked on some wood because the last think I want is for this beautiful breezy weather to end.

I’ve had every window in the house flung open all week, and it’s been so, so lovely.

We started the week with my nephew’s birthday, and ended it with some knitting. That sounds like a perfect week for me: time with extended family, breezy open-window days, and a healthy dose of creative work. (Contented sigh.)

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot with my DSLR for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2015), plus some phone snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…



365: 2015 199/365 – Apparently 17-year-olds have very strong opinions on whether birthday candles belong in watermelon slices or not. [at my parents’ house]



365: 2015 200/365 – I made that hedgehog dress today. I think it’s safe to put my sewing machine away and reclaim my dining room now. [oh, the out-of-focusness! it pains me, but I can’t exactly leave a day out of my daily project, no matter how it comes out.]



365: 2015 201/365 – The wineberry supply is dwindling…



365: 2015 202/365 – Cousins [at my sister-in-law’s house]



365: 2015 203/365 – Such a beautiful day for swimming! [at my parents’ house]



365: 2015 2014/365 – I suspect that tiger lilies are the party animals of the lily world.



365: 2015 205/365 – It may not be obvious to everyone what a shoulder button placket should look like, so I knit up a quick mock-up for a photo tutorial I will post when my baby sweater pattern is published (SOON!)

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
