Sunday Sevens #28


Sunday Sevens #28 – how did that come around so quickly??

This is how Nat at Threads and Bobbins describes the weekly blog series: –

“Each week, we do things that don’t necessarily warrant a full blog post.  You may have made a nice meal, grabbed some bargains on a shopping trip, had a family day out, spotted some beautiful scenery or just done something you feel you want to share.  A Sunday Sevens blog post is the place to share those things.  You take 7 images from your week and post them every Sunday with a small description.  Tag your post using #sundaysevens on your blog and social media.  I also pin the posts onto the Sunday Sevens Pinterest Board.”

Without further ado, here is my selection for this week.

1. Birthday meal with my little girl – we share the same birthday.

2. My monogrammed, hand embroidered napkins have been featured in Country Child magazine – they’re bottom left on the page.

3. A trip to my favourite place, Wells Reclamation. I’m going back for a post box.

4. One of my Crafternooners sent me a photo of her finished pieces. Aren’t they great? I love the colour coordinated pins she added for the picture! You can read about the Comic Relief Crafternoon in an earlier blog post.

5. I managed to sneak into another magazine this week too! Pretty Nostalgic is about vintage values, make do and mend, waste less, make more etc. It’s a great publication with NO adverts which makes it a joy to read. You can download the latest digital copy free to see if you like it before subscribing (it’s a members only publication).

7. Decorating the boys’ bedroom. All painted and the A M A Z I N G wallpaper is up, but waiting for some fabric to make bench seat cushions before I blog about it:)

    That reclamation yard looks amazing! You will have to show us which post box you get. Two magazine features is also pretty impressive 😀

    • Thanks Nat, I could spend a fortune in the Reclamation yard, in fact I probably have over the years! Still undecided on the post box – not sure whether to get the cheaper wall mounted one or the architectural free standing type:)

  8. You definately have had a busy week. Happy Birthday to you and your daughter. She is beautiful.. just like her momma. 🙂 I can’t wait to see the final ta-dahhh post when we get to see the boy’s room. I love the wallpaper. It reminds me of the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss. Congrats on the magazine entries. You are getting quite popular girlie!! The matching heart pins are just adorable. Hugs to you and the family. xxx Robin
