How’s your week been? Hope you’re feeling happy in whatever you’ve been up to! I have, and I’ve actually made 2 garments. Can’t wait to show you!
In the meantime here’s my Sunday Sevens – my week in sevens photos, thought up by a very talented Yorkshire lass who now resides is America, and blogs over at Threads and Bobbins.
1 Remember my birthday fabric from last week? Thankyou for all the wonderful suggestions. I finally decided on the Woodland Stroll Cape by Oliver and S. An especially big thankyou to the Prolific Project Starter for all her links and hints. You can see the one she made for her daughter HERE. So cute!
I decided to add one of my labels. I don’t normally bother when I’m making myself something but I thought this was a bit more special and deserved one.
2 H’s football team spent Saturday washing cars at our local co-op. They raised over £400 which is going towards some new kit.
3 We went out for lunch and H got a huge cajun chicken burger! He managed to polish the lot off!
4 Whilst in Brighouse I called into a local hospice charity shop. There’s 2 and one just sells all the ‘designer stuff’.
I bought this wrap dress for £15. Think I might wear it for this Thursdays wedding as I’ve not made anything yet and am cutting it a bit fine. I think it could look quite good if I loose the jeans and boots and wear some heals!
5 Chilli lasagne – a bit of a compromise. I love chilli and the hubby loves lasagne. The big chunk that’s missing went
via meals on wheels down to my parents as my mum had been working. They help us out loads with H so I like to do my bit when I can.
6 New shoes!! Bought them from the above mentioned charity shop. Lovely leather sling back wedges and never worn! £12.50! Bargain!! And they can dance too. Well they did last night after a bottle of wine at the cricket club!
7 Just to show all my meals aren’t amazingly tempting! I’d been out for a run and needed some proper food for breakfast. I’m trying to avoid bread (but not cake) so had a whole tin of baked beans and a couple of fried eggs. Tasted much better than they looked!
So that’s it! Oh, and just to mention, the ‘feature’ photo is of a local curtain shop in Cleckheaton called Inches. I recently called in when we were looking for a blind for our lounge and discovered the most amazing collection of buttons ever!
Remember the ones on my SBCC Cabernet Cardigan? They were from there, and I found some for my new cape. As soon as I’ve finished here I’m off to sew the button holes and get it finished!
For anyone who’s local it’s definitely worth a visit. There’s a vast haberdashery as well as gifts. There’s even remnants for a pound each which are the little mini curtains that are used in displays – they’d be perfect for anyone making bags.
Hope you have a smashing week! Look forward to seeing what you’ve been up to in your Sunday Sevens. If you’ve not decided to join us, why not!? It’s great fun and lets others know a bit more about your goings on away from your crafty corner.
