A Slightly Late Sunday Sevens // 6 2014

This week’s Sunday Sevens is slightly different, in that my photos will largely be of fabric, as other than work that’s pretty much what my week consisted of. For a proper explanation of what Sunday Sevens SHOULD be, visit Nat at Threads and Bobbins for full details.

1. Last Sunday evening, although I’d had no chance to sew all weekend, I got my fix by browsing (and buying) fabric online, by the fire, with wine and olives.
2. I had my first Hot Spiced Apple drink which I am now a little bit obsessed with. I also greatly appreciated Costa’s selection of Christmas cups.

3. I submitted Wilf for a sewing related dog competition. You can see how happy he is to be wearing his knitted jumper…

4. I went to the Knitting & Stitching Show in Harrogate. I was so overwhelmed I only managed to take one photo while I was inside, of some beautiful stained glass.

5. I received a very thoughtful parcel c/o Nat at Threads and Bobbins. Gorgeous colours and a beautiful bird print, what’s not to love?

6. From the show I invested in my first Liberty. I was spoilt for choice and at £14 per metre felt like it wasn’t as expensive as I anticipated. I may be visiting the online shop in the not too distant future. I chose one print that I felt was fairly classic, and the other just because I liked the delicate feather-like print.

7. After a busy week I spent most of Sunday with the dogs, who were apparently also in need of a rest.

  2. The stained glass is beautiful, and so is the bird fabric. Very nice.

Yesterday I spent most of the day at this beautiful old hotel. It even had a doorman. •

#run #running #rungry #runuptoChristmas #weekend #dogjog #runningwithdogs #runnersofinstagram Up and out early this morning, transporting players to a football match in the middle of the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside. The sun shone so brightly it was hard to see, but that’s not something to complain about this far into November. The team played well and they won 🙌🏼
