It's been too hot this weekend to really do any sewing. We just have one little fan to cool our house with, which is redundant if the sewing machine and the iron heat up the room.
So instead, I bought a $40 pool. It's the maximum amount that I wanted to spend, and we only have a tiny flat space outside our house. As it turns out, it isn't even flat because the water is kind of pointing downhill! It has a Laserlite pergola roof though, so I can avoid sunburn.
We don't need a pool fence because it has less than 400mm of water in it - I'll empty it out during the week, too. Can't imagine the water would be too clean by next weekend...
Anyway, the local wildlife is already enjoying it!
