Hope you’ve all had a lovely week! I have! It’s writing my Sunday Sevens and reflecting on my week that make me realise how lucky I am having an extra 2 hours in the day to everyone else – I must do cos I don’t see how else I could fit everything in!
Natalie from Threads and Bobbins thought up the Sunday Sevens over 18 months ago as a way of posting snippets of your week that maybe wouldn’t warrant a blog post all on their own. You don’t have to sign your life away to join in – just jump in and out as you please – or go for the long haul like me. It’s my Sunday Sevens Anniversary this weekend and I’ve not missed a week!
1 I started my week with good intentions of running 3 time. Monday went well but then I started with the sorest throat you can imagine and it’s lingered all week. Hopefully I’ll be able to get out more next week.
2 Took mum to stretch her legs around our local garden centre and bought some cherry scones for after tea.
3 I decided I needed a Brooklyn hoodie for work – I had 2 old jackets that had broken zips and managed to fit all the pieces on. It worked really well – post to follow!
4 The first snowy day we had this week – we had 2 but the 2nd one was much worse. Luckily I was off on the really bad day, I felt pretty rotten with my poorly throat and stayed in bed to lunchtime.
5 Slaithwaite in Huddersfield – pronounce sla-wit by Yorkshire folk! Maybe I should do a Vlog for my Sunday sevens!
6 Major sorting out of stash has started this week. 43 metres later and I’ve not even touched any of the 4 boxes of organised fabric or anything on my shelves. I think I might even be really ruthless and see if one of the local high schools who teach textiles would like some of my stash. With the best will in the world there’s no way I’m going to sew my way through this lot. Out of what I sorted so far most i would keep as its what I’ve bought and not used in the last year.
7 I think it’s 3 or 4 years since I’ve not had to work on Mothers Day so today we went to the golf club – they do a fab sunday lunch – 3 courses and coffee for only £12.50!!
8 And the lovely lady who works there brought me a double helping of my favourite pudding with a red ribbon round it!
The feature photo this week is a little vintage camper that I’ve embroidered for my lovely Mum……Happy Mothers Day Mum! xxx
And just before you go – even tho it’s already had it’s own post but I’m so pleased with it I just need to show you again! My 2 blocks for the Time for Teal quilt in aid of Ovarian Cancer.
