Sunday Sevens // 22 2105 

Sunday Sevens is a weekly blog series created by the lovely Nat at Threads and Bobbins. Check out her blog for the low down. 

The first week of Summer 2 was a return to the bustle and busyness of teaching, meaning the week passed in a blur which was punctuated mainly by dog walks. 

1. I perused a couple of books in search of possible patterns for TMS’s Indie Pattern Month. Not yet made anything from this book – have you? 

2. Stinky little Oliver had a good roll in something particularly potent during a dog walk, meaning he was subjected to an unscheduled bath. 

3.  On a different walk from normal I passed through the station in Worksop  on a quiet evening. 

4.  Back to an extreme emphasis on dog walks, one late walk afforded me this beautiful scene, with just a little help from Instagram, naturally. 

5. Beautiful laburnum in the warm spring sunshine.   

6. Took a trip to Barnsley with my mum, and purchased just one type of fabric (bonus photo below!) This picture was taken in a small gallery whilst I was scoffing coffee and carrot cake. 

   7.  Dress difficulties, which are continuing. The dress I had cut out is too narrow so I’m currently in the process of trying to sew it up as a top. I’ll be returning afresh in the morning! 

 Lots in the diary again this week, so have a good one 🙂

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 🙌🏼
