Sunday Sevens // 8 2015 

Sunday Sevens was created by Nat at Threads and Bobbins as a window to your week. Seven pictures to showcase seven days. Visit her blog to find out more, including how to take part next week. 

The first week of Spring 2 at school was a busy one with little time for making during the week. To counteract that, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about sewing, as this post will indicate. 

1. I’ll start with the most exciting event: I bought a new (to me) sewing machine! 

2. And my first use of her was to make this sweet little fox rattle as a gift. Find out how to make one here

3. I came across this and loved it ~ partly because I feel I’ve achieved it. 

4. I spent some time pondering over how best to store my stash. Answers on a postcard…

5. Sewing related purchases/deliveries this week. The blue is the same as the pink rose fabric on last week’s GBSB.

6. The Monthly Stitch announced the winner for their April challenge! As a lover of all things bird, naturally I was thrilled. 

7. The school shelves at Carlton House are stocked and awaiting the grand opening. I’m intrigued to see what sells and when. All proceeds will go to class charities. 

Have a great week and a good start to the new month. I’ll finish with some words from my grandma, who was born in March 1920. She used to say “March – comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” Here’s hoping.

  1. LOL at your stash. I think the best way to deal with that is to use it!

  2. I’m intrigued to know what you’re going to make with the Paddington fabric…

  3. Even though I’ve got a whole room dedicated to crafting, my fabric is never folded and stacked neatly like you see in the magazines! I’m always pulling it out and chucking it back so it looks just like your pile – only on shelves:)

  4. The rattle is so cute! I’m pleased about the Monthly Stitch challenge so I may even do my first blog post….maybe!

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 🙌🏼
