A roundup of seven photos from your week, Sunday Sevens is the perfect place to share images that may not otherwise justify a full blog post. Visit Nat for full details.  

 It’s been a week when I caught up on all the appointments I don’t get chance to make during term time. Other than that, it’s been fairly quiet so I’ve also been able to indulge in some making. I’m not completely sure I have seven photos this week, but here goes.

1.  Breakfast in the sunshine in the garden with the dogs for company. 

 2.  New shoes! I bought two pairs in the sales, one flat and practical, the other less so. But they are pretty…

 3. I made my second Ruby dress, but wish I had made it about 6 inches longer as there’s no way it’s suitable to wear as anything but a top – has anyone else found this with the Ruby? Other than that I’m pleased with it.  

 4. I’ve done a bit more crochet, and am hoping to continue with it this week.  I think I need to work on sharpening the points next…

 5. I spent a long time trying to decide which dress to make after the Ruby turned out (way) too short. I wanted something a bit different but a pattern that sewed up quite quickly (impatient as ever).  These were ultimately the main contenders. 

 6. A delivery of fabric from ebay – I love them all!  All viscose and all reasonable ranging from £2.50 – £3.99 per metre. 

 7. The dogs are starting to get more accustomed to travelling in the boot.  

  I’m a little alarmed at the speed that the holidays are passing – we’re already almost half way through – so I’m hoping to make the most of each day now. I hope you are doing the same and enjoying August 🌞
