Hello Sunday Seveners!
I work either 2, 3, 4, or 5 10 yours shifts a week. It averages out at 33 hours per week. This week was a shocker as I had to work 5 shifts. Luckily these weeks don’t happen too often and I somehow managed to cram in quite a bit to share with you.
Before starting work at 4pm on Monday I had a lovely hour with Hila and Eleanor in the Shuttle in Shipley. The name kept popping up and Hila just HAD to pay a visit. And like all
fabric addicts good sewing friends do we went to keep her company. I did have to make the obligatory purchase or 3! The Shuttle isn’t online but see THIS website for reviews and where to find it. It’s definitely worth a visit if you’re ever in the area, or not!
As soon as I got home from the Shuttle I dug out my rulers and set about making my first block. I’d been wanted to get started for ages but needed measuring. I took my tape measure to the Shuttle and Hila got it all done – thanks Hun, you’re a star! the shop was really busy but no one batted an eyelid!
I also did a bit of tidying up and have started using the different sized IKEA bags to organise my bits and pieces.
Wednesday the hubby and I celebrated 20 years since our first date. Unfortunately I was working but when I came in from work at 2am there was a bunch of flowers waiting for me – do you like the make shift vase?!
Thursday was cyber-pops birthday. We all went to the Empire fish and chip restaurant in Wakefield. Aren’t these just the poshest fish and chips you’ve ever seen?
Alfie, our very own star baker, made the birthday cake!
If you’ve not time to eat it there’s a drive through!! That was the first time I’ve ever seen a fish and chips drive thru anywhere!
Friday we had quite a fall of snow. This was in the morning, and at lunch time we had a couple more inches. It was crazy as on Tuesday when I played golf (after 5 hours sleep!) it was unseasonably warm and for about an hour when the sun was out our coats were off and we played in shirt sleeves.
The hubby made tea tonight. It doesn’t happen too often so I just had to take a photo!
I finally got a photo of Sue in the dress I altered for her. She sent it to me at the end of the week, but I think next time I’m round at hers we’ll have a proper fashion shoot!
The feature pic at the top is adding the finishing touches to my Butterick 6390 jacket – adding the buttons!
