Hello from Sunny at last Yorkshire! Not quite scorching but glimpses of blue sky 2 days running!
Here’s my run down and 7-ish photos from the last week. I’m doing this on my phone so bit tricky to link to Natalie’s blog over at threads & bobbins but I’ll change it when I’m less mobile!
1. Living the dream. Chicken curry and chips on my last night shift, and catch up with my WordPress reader.
2. My niece came round to borrow my machine for some college work.
3. I didn’t play golf on Tuesday as the weather was horrendous. This was an hour after we decided not to play! 😕
4. Hand stitching in my car, too cold to watch the cricket outside. Note elevated right leg (with dodgy circulation) attempting to the prevent the inevitable DVT.
5. Played golf in the A team match. I got whooped and the team lost. We played at Horsforth Golf Club. One of the holes is adjacent to the runway of Leeds & Bradford airport. Here’s a plane coming in…
6. Noticed my baskets had greenfly so gave them a bowl of cold soapy water!
7. Finally we have sunshine and can watch cricket with proper cricket weather!
I’d too many photos this week so George is staring as the feature image!
Lots of pictures including lovely blue sky – we just need temperatures to rise a little now! Your hanging basket is very pretty! Look forward to seeing what your hand sewing turns into 🙂
The hand sewing… I was sewing on the buttons onto my cabernet cardigan and sewing in loose ends. Hope i’ve not disappointed you!
You need an early night after all your activity today!!!!!
I was sparko by 10pm! I even watched TV sunday and I couldn’t even be bothered to crochet whilst watched it!. Raring to go again today tho!
Love that opening photo! And how you’re using every available minute to squeeze in a bit of sewing 🙂
Aw, he is a cutie isn’t he! He’s a bit like a baby tho – wouldn’t want him full time! And he stinks from the rear end too…. (sorry, too much information!)
What a busy week! I’m intrigued about what your niece is making?! I’m also very jealous of your curry 😀
She’s doing free hand embroidery and making lace! I was very impressed, I didn’t know my old machine could do that!
PS the curry is the best! a little hut near station and he always throws in a freebie starter as a surprise!
Phew! You really have been busy… glad the sun is out! ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️
Thanks for sending us some sun Del x
My pleasure – we can spare it with so many droughts across the country… ☀️☀️☀️
Blimey, those planes would have made me jump flying so close! Shame your golf plans were scuppered but lucky for you the cricket could go ahead – bloody fickle weather!
The planes were really distracting, couldn’t really blame me loosing the match on them, but they were coming in every few minutes and it was all really exciting (to me, the other women was used to it cos she plays there all the time!). Scuppered golfing plans made time to finish off my Cardi so wasn’t all bad!
I have to comment on your beautifully cut lawn and hedges!! So neat!
The hedges take some keeping up to (for hubby – he’s out there now, i’m too short to help, phew!). We used to have all sorts in the garden, but as it’s just used for footie and cricket we keep it low maintenance now (except for the hedges!) …more time for sewing!
Look at all that blue sky–glad spring has finally found you! I can’t believe how close that plane was; must have been quite the racket.
The planes were really noisy, I found it all too exciting – taking photos instead of concentrating and trying to beat my opponent!
Great to see such a lovely shot of George. As a writer it looks like a real page turner of a week, lots of ups and down, but our resilient heroine keeps on sewing throughout and the story ends with her putting her feet up in the sunshine 🙂
Haha, I like your summary of my week! Nearly wrote summery…now that would be nice, if only we could have one or two degrees on the thermostat!
Oh yes, where is summer?
PS George was after the fortune cookies – we’d just had a chinky!
I’m sure he’s have appreciated it if you’d read him his fortune 😉
He needs a bit of good fortune – his hair’s falling out and he’s starting to look like a pot bellied pig 🐷
Aw bless him! Give him a hug from me.
Keep forgetting to ask if you’d care to comment on that Limoncello you made. (Did you like it? Easy to follow? Any particular problems?) Am thinking about getting the pattern… Thank you! x
Loved making it, was really easy and it hangs really nice, but I just don’t wear it much. Might do if we get some warm weather, not really sure why I’ve not worn it much. Will try and fit it in the end of MMAY 🙂 I should really have posted about it. Will see if I can find my old pics from when I made it.
Thank you!!! The how’s-it-hang bit is important – sorry I forgot that detail. Genius of you! Will order straight away. x
I should imagine it could be a bit flappy at the front if your fabric doesn’t drape well.. I used a ponte knit.
Another good thing to know that I totally forgot! Was thinking to use something filmier, but you know how that can vary. Thanks again!
Filmier?? You’ve lost me there😳
More sheer ~ uhm… chiffon!
Arrhhhh, yes, flimsier I get it now. Think it might be a bit too wafty! 😃
Is there such a thing?! Not for moi!
George is my favourite, although the curry & chips could be a close second … 🙂
He is a cutie, smelly, but cute! Maybe he’s been having the curry too! :-O
