Sunday Sevens #58

53 Comments

Another Sunday, another #sundaysevens – seven photos of your week giving followers an insight to your life in the real world as organised by Nat at Threads & Bobbins. Visit her site to find out more and how you can join in yourself.

  1. No.1 Son has now largely recovered from a fractured skull – this photo was taken last week before his fall, in a hotel restaurant nearby. Mr H-L is admiring the grounds in the background.

2. Couldn’t resist ordering the book I mentioned last week and it arrived a few days ago.

3. This project needs to be finished before I start on the above book. I’m on the home straight though, just the hair to finish off and then I can begin the mammoth task of photographing everything to show you.

4. A very rare supper-on-the-sofa moment made special by the romantic surprise gesture of my own personal candlestick. Mr H-L cooks a mean Chicken Gumbo.

5. I pass the church each time I walk the dogs and it struck me that any day now the leaves will change to a glorious shade of russet before falling to the ground.

6. Teaching pattern drafting to a student; I taught her how to draft a skirt sloper and then make a pattern from it. I really must get some small weights as the homemade jars of jam are a little too big!

7. A sweet photo of a tired No.2 Son curled up on the sofa with Fifi.

8. I had to squeeze in an extra photo this week to show you a very special picture – our first grandchild! Here is baby Lilah having her first cuddle with a very proud Mr H-L. After a traumatic start to life, she is now home and doing well.

Hope you all had a good weekend!

    • Thanks Bekki, certainly a happier week knowing that all the kids (and grandchild) are healing. I take more than five minutes for myself, in fact I have been particularly productive this week as I find “making” incredibly therapeutic:)

  10. What a lovely post! I am glad to see you number one son is on the mend. Your new grandbaby is just precious. My first grandbaby was a girl with the name of Lyla. I don’t know if she is pronounced the same. My Lyla is pronounced with the y as an I. Isn’t neat?!! The more I see you sew and crochet the more I want to move in next door to you!! You are so talented and such a wonderful mum! This year I am so excited for Christmas! What about you? Lots of love to you all!xxxxxxx

    • Thanks Robin, well, wouldn’t you know – it seems Lilah is pronounced the same as Lyla! I’m always excited for Christmas – even though I spend most of the year making presents, the excitement never dulls. It’s the huge satisfaction and look on peoples faces that make it all worthwhile:)

    • Thanks Beth, I can’t wait to meet her next weekend! The sewing lessons are going really well, judging by the reaction of this particular student. She declared proudly to her mother “This is MY pattern, I made it ALL”. No.2 Son will be ten next month, but he still likes to cuddle up with his blanket and suck his thumb at bedtime:)

    • Thanks Natalie, a quieter week would be most welcome! I don’t know about Maisy, but our two can’t just lie down on the sofa, they have to be sitting ON us. As soon as one of the many crocheted blankets is dragged off the back of the sofas they leap up and curl up on top of it on our laps:)

  16. Sounds like you have a scary start to the week. Hope number son’s taking it steady after his head injury. But what a way to finish your week with your first grandchild. She’s gorgeous! Hope you make her lots of cute outfits and share them with us. Are you going to be Nan, Gran, Nanny….? πŸ˜ƒ
