Well, I finally gotten round to doing my Carol Vorderman bit and added up the total mileage of how far everyone travelled to the #sewdowndewsbury meet up. And I was absolutely flabbergasted! Even before the 808 miles from Chris who came from Germany were added you guys travelled 1,111.2 miles!!! So in total that’s……..
So the UK winner is Cathy from nanacathydotcom who guessed 1876, so she was only 43.2 miles under, and doesn’t live too far away herself so hopefully we’ll meet up at a future sewing gathering. Last year Sam won the competiton and this year she came, so you never know!
The international winner is Rachel, all the way from Malaysia, who blogs at SewSouthLondon. Rachel’s guess was only 54.8 over … 1974.
Well done ladies!! If you email me your addresses I’ll arrange for your goodie bags to be posted off to you!!
So now on to what else happened last week……included some sewing. I’m a bit worried that you’ll think I’ve given up the sewing blog in favour (or should it be flavour) of a foodie blog, as at the minute if i’m not preparing food, I’m either eating it or thinking about it! Or trying to work it off!
Helen made another frock! She should take over my blog!
After something Helen said today when she popped round for lunch and a comment from Lyn at Tialys I’ve decided I’m going to nominate a dolled up day each week to get dolled up for absolutely no reason what so ever! Do you fancy joining in?
The scrum food continues…. white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake!
Me in action on the golf course, and this time I took no prisoners and whooped the hubby’s butt!
I made a start on my first jumpsuit which has ended up being a wrap top instead. I’ve teamed this up with some white 3/4 length wide pants and can’t wait to show you them in some proper photos.
The hubby and I took advantage of the light nights and have been trying to do an hours walking each evening, or body magic as they call it at slimming world!
Spiralized potatoes cooked in the oven, H loved them!
One of Rory’s friends getting acquainted with our new furniture.
More of my photos have been popping up at the golf club – all 3 are mine, but the mushroom one is my favourite.
Mag’s bottom! She thought I was a bit daft when i wanted to take a picture of it after golf last week. But just check out those cool pockets!!
And lastly, my latest proper finished make…..to be blogged very shortly is the ‘feature pic’ at the top!!
Weight loss update: I lost another 2 pounds, that’s 13 in total and leaves me only 6 pounds to target! Mum put 1/2 pound on and thought it was an April fool but it wasn’t. She’s back on track this week. The hubby is still loosing weight steadingly and has lost a stone altogether, but as he doesn’t have an official weigh in it’s hard to know exactly what he’s lost. He’s going in the right direction though.
