Hello! I’m on track with my days today and quickly posting before I dash downstairs to open a bottle of something fizzy and watch Xfactor!
Here’s my week in 7 photos – The Sunday Sevens as thought up by the lovely Natalie over at Threads and Bobbins.
1 We had our end of season competition at the golf club, followed my a meal. Check out this pudding!! It’s my absolute favourite and Lorraine the waitress left me until the very last to be served. I was feeling very sorry for myself. Then she came out with this!! Not sure if you can get how big this piece is – it’s on a dinner plate and the spoon in a serving spoon!! I ate half and they wrapped the rest up for me to take home for H.
2 I’ve made another gift this week using photographic transfer paper. To be blogged very soon (she may be watching!!)
3 A parcel of lovely Christmas fabric arrived all the way from America from Natalie’s Sunday Sevens Birthday Giveaway! I think I’m going to make some Christmas Bunting which will hopefully come out year after year!
4 Then the next day another parcel arrived!! This was from Rachel from SewSouthLondon. She a bit further away now than London, this came all the way from Malaysia. Its a gorgeous soft 100% Japanese cotton that she bought in Singapore. Just for me! It was a thankyou for her my GBSB drapy knit dress which did me no favours but in the interest of science I sent it to Rachel. If you missed it early this year here’s Rachel’s Single White Female post.
5 This one’s just for you Del and as close to the butcher as I dare go when I’m out jogging!
6 Friday night we went to watch Huddersfield Giants v Leeds Rhinos in the Rugby Super League. A very exciting match, or so I was told! I had a natter with some of the other wives and watched from behind glass next to the bar!
7 Yay! We’ve had glorious sunshine on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and I’ve done loads of pegging out! Don’t think it’ll last much longer, but making the most of it whilst it’s here!
So that’s my week! Hope you’ve had a lovely one too! If you’d like to join in you can – just had a look a Natalie’s post to see what it’s about. It’s a really good way to get to know other sewing bloggers and we share things other than what’s going on at the machine! And also, like Sewchet mentioned a couple of weeks ago, it keeps us blogging when we might not otherwise have anything to share!
Oh and before I go, the feature photo – it’s one of the floral centre pieces from out ladies golf lunch. Isn’t it stunning!?
