Linking up with Nat at Threads & Bobbins for another Sunday Sevens – a weekly blog series showing your life outside the blog.
- The first photo is especially for Pauline – proof that they did enjoy the competition last Sunday!
2. Hubby and I went out for coffee at Hooga in Wincanton. He worked and I did a bit of knitting.
3. I spent a couple of solid days sewing Christmas presents at the dining table and this is the mess that ensued.
4. Here are a few sneak peeks, all of which I hope to blog soon.
This one was made of patchworked scraps of fabric.
5. There were just enough scraps of this Orla Kiely fabric to make a washbag. It’s moments like this that make me glad I keep the tiniest scraps of leftover fabric!
6. Another washbag made from hubby’s old tweed suit – definitely for a man in the family.
7. A matching cosmetic bag for his good lady. Now they can travel in matching classy style!
8. Discovered in Sainsbury – 100% dark chocolate! I love the ‘warning’ on the packet.
9. Mr H-L bought this pocket book of pub walks whilst we were out after a dental appointment. The scenic view on the cover is the exact same one if you look left out of the side gates of the house we’re hoping to buy in Allerford.
The irony is…..there is no pub in that village!!
10. I am a sucker for nostalgia, so couldn’t resist this little book of Christmas.
11. Talking of Christmas, The English Home dropped on the doormat and its gorgeous cover made me rather sad that we don’t even know where we’ll be living by then:(
12. This is me with the husband, all glammed up for our niece’s 21st birthday on Saturday. Rather the worse for wear in this photo taken at the end of the night, I nonetheless feel duty bound to recount to you the words of a little girl uttered as we entered the venue: “Ooh Daddy, look…..it’s a Princess!!”
And, no, she wasn’t referring to Him.
13. Despite the previous nights excesses, we all got up in time to join in the commemorations for the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day.
What a moving end to the week.
