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.
