Hello Sunday Seveners!
I’ve managed to squeeze in quite a bit in the last week. I should have included a photo of Dewsbury hospital as the MIL was admitted a week yesterday with her breathing, and is still there. So I’ve spent quite a bit of time backwards, they’ve not got to the bottom of what’s causing the shortness of breath but fingers crossed we’ll have answers soon.
I had quite an eventful time at work this week, it started off with needing the assistance of these guys…..
On Tuesday we played in the Lady Captains New Year Comp, and had a huge meal afterwards. The only photo I have though is of me and my partner in crime practicing a selfie!
Later in the week Bekki (from the Dartmoor Yarn Company) and I started collaberating a joint venture. Bekki is a proper knitter in case you don’t know her, I think she could even knit in her sleep! We’ve come up with an idea (not really sure how it happened!) but it’s a secret at the minute. We’re still in the planning stages, but here is my contribution so far:
I don’t do dry January – I don’t think I have enough wet days for it justify a dry month!
We were forecast snow at the end of the week. We’re quite high up and normally get quite a dump of it, but we didn’t even get enough for a snow ball fight!
Saturday I had a trip down Dewsbury. It’s not down to Dewsbury, cos that wouldn’t be right. It doesn’t matter which direction you come from, you always say you’re off down Dewsbury. If it were Leeds, you’d say you were off to Leeds not down Leeds. But Dewsbury is different! So that got me thinking about the trip, and I think it’ll be #sewdownDewsbury – what do you think?
For the eagle eyed amongst you, can you spot Fabworks!?
I usually get away with not having to do the Costco trip. I just think it’s crazy filling up such a huge trolley, but we called to Leeds after the trip ‘down Dewsbury’.
Cutting out my first Moneta – I think Rory was worried the cat fabric might be a relation, or that she might be next! (yes, Rory’s a girl!)
About the only time you’ll see Mr Thimbers in the kitchen is after a night out when he’s got the munchies.
I started the week with the surprise of a double yolker, and then at the end of the week 3 out of 3 eggs were double yolkers!! Shame my egg cracking skills haven’t lived up to the occasion!
I’m joining in the Triple Stitchers Moneta Party! I was gifted this Tigger velour fabric last year in Jungle January but I was rubbish and never made anything. So I made a muslin of the Moneta dress with it and discovered that due to having a gigantic ribcage it sits way too high above my waist.
It would be fun to wear it to a kids party, and it’s really comfy too. But realistically I don’t think it’ll be worn in public. On a positive note it has the most amazingly hems, thanks to my cover stitch machine!
And just one more bit of news. Quite a few of you have asked me if I knew how Teresa is from Navy Blue Threads. Just to let you know I’ve caught up with her, she’s fine, and she can’t wait to catch up with all the Spoolettes when she joins us for #sewdowndewsbury! Yay!
