Sunday Sevens #84

Sunday Sevens is a weekly blog series devised by Nat at Threads & Bobbins – visit her blog to find out how YOU can join in.

1. I gave The Boys a long overdue haircut.

2. One of my students lost a tooth during sewing class, so I wrapped it up safely for him to take home and put under his pillow for the tooth fairy. Yup, that’s how young my students are!

3. This colourful bundle of fabrics arrived from Minerva Crafts for my next three months projects for the blogger’s network.

4. We went out for supper with friends mid week to Matt’s Kitchen in Bruton. Basically, he opens up his lounge as a restaurant for three nights a week. He’s an untrained, self taught chef and is amazing!

5. These are the renegades that came with us:)

6. Finished in sewing classes this week; one pair of surfer shorts and one pair of tartan wool shorts with turn ups.

7. Also completed; two versions of the same square necked blouse.

8. A present turned up in the post from The Netherlands!

9. Marianne, who blogs at, saw this bag and thought of me.

9. She also sent me this lovely little crocheted pin cushion complete with pins! I’ve long since admired these on her blog and am delighted to now own one. And just look at that postcard……it certainly did brighten my day.

10. We spent the weekend getting Mr H-L’s late parents flat ready for sale. Even the terrace got scrubbed to within an inch of its life.

11. A few pots were replanted with things that, hopefully, will survive without being watered every day.

12. Finally, after two weekends of hard labour – finished! 

Anyone want to buy a two-bedroomed garden flat in London for the same price as a four bed detached house with paddocks  here in Somerset?!!

12. Back home, laundry from the flat was piled up waiting for its turn in the washing machine. The only thing that could be better to curl up on, from a dog’s point of view, is dirty underwear. Just sayin’.

14. Our wedding anniversary is next week and we usually have a European city break but, as we won’t have a London base for much longer, we thought we’d take the opportunity to stay for a few days over the weekend and see some shows and eat out.

Claridges is booked for dinner on Saturday night:)

Hope your week was good!
