I’m feeling a bit like a bingo caller – “all the 7s – Sunday Sevens – Seventy Seven”
I’m blaming Sew Up North (S.U.N.) for my lateness this week. I know I have regular readers who watch out for my Sunday Sevens (that’s you Mom!), but the S.U.N. post just had to jump the queue, and I don’t think there’s any apologies needed.
So what else happened last week?
I started the week in true Thimbers style with cake. You’ve seen these meringues before but not in the pink version. Whitleys Garden Centre had a fire earlier in the year and has been shut for ages. It has reopened with new, not sure if improved, but still lovely and huge meringues. If you’re around Mirfield way on the run up to Christmas it’s worth a visit. The decorations are to die for, they do a great afternoon tea, and Santa’s there too. And there’s a great cafe.
I have to show you the inside too!
My sewing cave has had slight makeover in readiness for the new arrival. I took this picture with the panoramic setting on my iPhone as it’s the only way with the room being so small.
Tuesday I should have played golf, and whilst i was going to be out my Babylock was being delivered to Cyber Moms. I received a text from Cyber mom 20 minutes before I was due to leave for golf to say it had arrived.
Major isnic set in! What to do?
I rang my pals, cancelled my golf and stayed at home and played with my new toy!
The next morning was an early start at 5am, and the first frost of the winter for me. I think I forgot to mention I’d gotten a new-to me car last month. Not sure how it slipped through my Sunday Sevens, but after the Merc failed its MOT miserably I needed a new car. It’s not as smart as my old merc but it’s got a big boot for the golf clubs, so what more could a girl ask for!?
Friday night we went to watch the Wedding Singer at Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield. My nephew was playing the lead role, and we had a fab night! It always amazes me how our family produced someone with such an amazing voice – well done sis’!
After I arrived home from S.U.N. there was a slight reality check as the penny was straight on and I had to make a HUGE pan of chilli to take to my friends who was having a little bonfire and fireworks party.
Most of us stayed in the garage and watched the fireworks from there, it was freeeeeezing!
I’ve been on with my sponsored blog post this week for Sew Essential. It’s been quite hard to get motivated as I’ve been wanting to sew stretchy fabric with my new toy. A big bicep adjustment was needed and an inch off the length off the length of the arms. It’s all cut and I’m hoping to do a bit more tonight.
I’ve been on with a slight refashion too this week. Here’s Sue in a dress she bought online. It does nothing for her petite frame. She looks like she could almost fly in this batwing top! It’s all done, and I gave her it back this morning. Hopefully I’ll have a photo to show you in next weeks Sunday Sevens.
Sunday was Lucy’s birthday – some of you will have met her on Saturday at the meet up. Alfie (the singer, Lucy’s brother) made her a gluten free birthday cake.
We all had tea at cyber moms and when we came to leave cyber mom had to stand on a little buffet so she could reach to give H a kiss!
