Hope you’ve all had a lovely week and the weather’s been kind to you wherever you are. I really don’t know how I did what I did last week. There’s no way in a month of Sundays than I could narrow it down to just 7 photos for you – so what’s new!
Natalie from Threads and Bobbins thought up the Sunday Sevens nearly 2 years 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.
I got stuck into making my Belize shorts as a fitting lesson for making the skort. I spent all day and night sewing. It was ace! I made the shorts and almost finished the skort too.
Here’s a tip if for any reason you need to stop sewing, for example when sewing the waistbank on the belize shorts – stick a pin right in the way so you don’t sew too far! I spent all day and night sewing. It was ace! I made the shorts and almost finished the skort too.
I was playing golf at 10am on Tuesday but got up early and finished my skort.
The water lilies on the pond on the 11th are in flower and look stunning….
After golf we went out for tea with the MIL, and brother in law and his misses. I felt I’d earned a pud and had a sticky toffee pudding, with cream and custard!
When we arrived home I set about making my PJ’s in liberty fabric using the Belize shorts pattern.
I finished my PJs before going of for lunch
– again I couldn’t resist a pudding. I was almost full after my omelette but thought the lemon meringue pie could be included in my 5 a day.
We went to a cafe that used to be an egg farm and they have a small holding with a few animals….
Afterwards I took the MIL to boots for some new makeup for the wedding in September.
In the evening I made a start cutting out my next dress – a hack of Vogue 9082. Here are my new pattern weights:
A whole day of sewing! And an evening cricket match. H was playing cricket for Rastick at home – aptly named Roundhill cricket club ……. Sorry for the naff photo, but I was watching from inside as it was a bit windy.
When we got home I tried on my dress so far. Ignore miserable face, I wasn’t really! You get the idea but think it needs taking in quite a bit.
Friday was an early start. I was taking H, his cousin and 2 pals to a new water park in Scarborough. We were leaving at 8:0, at 7:30 (before I’d made the picnic) I decided I needed a new boob tub and made this in less than 30 minutes.
I had gotton in touch with Corrine from Appleby makes and had arranged to meet her for a coffee and a catch up. She took us to a cafe with the most amazing views over the south shore.
It was lovely to have a catch up, and we squeezed in a bit of shopping too. I bought a new zip for my pink dress, and 2 pieces of cotton for my next skort. the green spotty is going to be the shorts and the flowery fabric the skirt.
Saturday I worked a shift on the ambulance for a pal who needed the day off. We were so busy! I had to call assistance from the air ambulance as we went to a patient who was in quite a remote area, and needed to be take to the Leeds Infirmary.
I managed to get to see H play cricket for a couple of hours after work, luckily the sun was shining. It was only on the tops above Todmorden that was a bit bleak.
An early start – we took the jet ski to Whitby. It’s 22 years old now but still works like a dream. It’s 7 years since I last rode it but hadn’t lost my nerve and managed to jump a few big waves. The wet suit was a bit tight though! Probably due to all the cake I’ve eaten this week!
So that’s it – my week in one big nut shell!
