Sunday Sevens // 10 2015

A short and sweet Sunday Sevens this week, working on the theory that something is better than nothing. For full details on how to participate properly, jump over to Nat’s blog. 

1. View during a dog walk at dusk. 

2. I haven’t sewn for a week! At all! Here’s my next Cambie dress all cut out and waiting. 

3. Not sure it’s the season, but the camellia in my garden is in flower. 

4. I gave my mum the top I had made her for Mother’s Day. It fit well and she liked it. 

5. The planetarium came to school! 

6. At last, found a cafe I love at Meadowhall. Even toast and jam there is delicious.

7. I’m in desperate need of new slippers (a first world problem, I know) I’ve yet to find any I like so currently wearing some that originally belonged to my mum. 

My aim for this week is to get back to sewing, and to take more pictures. Have a good one!

  1. Looks a lovely fabric you’re using. Will look forward to seeing it made up. I get withdrawal symptoms too 🙂

  2. Your fabric kind of looks like it has books lined up, then on closer inspection… are they matches?!
    And I love your dog, he looks so sweet! And that toast looks so posh!!

  3. Ciabatta toast? Scrummy! I had to laugh at the hint of desperation in your ‘voice’ about the lack of sewing this week – a feeling most can empathise with!

  4. I thin the fabric looks like matches too! Are they matches or is it just a pattern? Aaaaw I’m missing Wilfie & Olive…and you obviously 😦 The canal looks gorgeous too!

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 🙌🏼
