In other words it’s a photo heavy catch up of what I’ve been up to in May.
Errrm, where do I start?
Almost a whole month without blogging!
It’s not that i’ve lost my sew-jo or blog-jo, or would that be blo-jo, I’ve just been busy getting fit and playing lots of golf. And I feel so much better for it. I’ve lost 12 pounds and 9 inches! Now all I need to do is try and get a balance in my life with my family and everything else I love to do. So I thought I’d do a round up of May incorporating everything I’ve been up to, so really it’s a bit like a big Sunday Sevens. I’ve still been sewing, not quite as intense as usual but the main thing I’ve struggled with is reading all my favourite bloggers’ posts. Hopefully over the next week whilst I’m on holiday I’ll find to catch up – fingers crossed there’ll be wifi.
My Me Mad May effort was poor. Well, it was the photography that was poor. I think next year I’ll set up my tripod near the back door and snap on the way out on a morning.
The Spoolettes Mini Meet up……
Not quite as hectic as previous trips we’ve had to Dewsbury, but just as enjoyable. Some new faces too. We met at the Fabbadashery in Halifax, then went for lunch at Cafe Passion which I can highly recommend! Unfortunately I’m struggling with this post as I’m writing it on my iPad so links are such a pain in the butt. Hopefully when I’m back home I’ll be able to fill in more info on the pix. But just to mention, Chrissie one of our new Yorkshire Spoolettes has had one of her quilts she made featured in a book! How cool is that?!
Now to the Sunday Sevens-ish part of the post. I’m a bit gutted I lost my way and missed some Sunday sevens but life’s too short to dwell in that so I’ll just crack on!
H had his final trial. Unfortunately he didn’t make the team this year but he’s taken it on the chin and not gotten disheartened. The main thing I was gutted out was that we won’t be going on tour to Taunton. I was hoping to meet up with SEWCHET who doesn’t live too far away.
Moon the Spoolettes trip I bought fabric to make a small quilt for a baby that was due”. It’s almost finished, and the baby is now overdue! All that’s left to do it make the hand stitched label once I know it’s name and date of birth. In the meantime here’s a sneak peak of what it will…
I joined in a 5k colour run to raise money for our local children’s hospice. A great cause and a great laugh!
Remember shed gate? Well, we now have a shed and the hubby is happy!
A healthy concoction for tea.
A stunning sunset….
Another healthy tea!
View over Halifax from Southowram. I just had to pull over to snap this one. No I wasn’t on a call!
I’ve been helping out with some pattern testing…… More to follow!
Whilst we’ve had some amazing weather in May, we’ve also had some really chilly days too. It’s not deterred me though, I’ve won a trophy comp, Mr Captains day and come second in another comp!
H captain West Yorkshire under 14s against the Yorkshire side he didn’t get in. He played really well, and got 48 runs.
I’ve played a few team matches in the last month. One of the ladies who plays at a local course had to feed the birds. They came out of the bushes as soon as she rattled her box of goddies!
This is a pic of one of the other ladies bags in the same team. We all loved it. She bought it for five pounds at a local charity shop. The hard wear to buy would cost more than that!
Yet another healthy meal. I’m liking black Thai rice- it makes the water go deep purple when you cook it!
Bruised below my waist sutained whilst doing a power hoop session! Great exercise but not something I’d rush back and do, well not before my holiday at least. Not a good look to have wearing a bikini, I’d look like a battered wife!
Well, that it’s for now. Hopefully I’ve passivised my mum. Every time I see her she asked if I’ve done my Sunday sevens yet. With a bit of look there’s not too many typos, our planes about to board so I’m not going to have chance to read back over it!
Essentials packed, Cheerio for now x
