Sunday Sevens #21 2019

Welcome to my Sunday Sevens – a post where I share seven (or so) photos of my week away from the blog.

It’s been a busy week where I’ve forgotten to take many pictures through the week. I did however remember to take a pic of the mung bean and spinach soup I made because it looked so revolting. Pleased to say it tasted better than it looked:..

The other ‘event’ I remembered to take a couple of photos of was on Thursday when we took the day out to visit Chagford Show…

I’m always amazed by how different the breeds of sheep are. Just look at the colour of these Suffolks…

I was even more amazed to find Harry has started a secret business…

As usual  Harry has been keeping us entertained in many ways, but the best this week was when I briefly swapped bras to put a white one on for Lovely Hubby to take pics of my sleeveless top. Dear Harry immediately stole my black one and ran around very proudly waving it at us…

This Saturday was our village Flower and Produce Show.  You may remember me  previously complaining that the craft section had been given a theme, that I had nothing I could enter and that I wasn’t going to make things to match a theme specially for the show.

Having done some hard thinking I managed to dredge out some old makes and use a couple of recent makes to enter each category. Since I haven’t blogged the new makes yet, I’ll do a couple of separate posts about them. Meantime I’ll show you the winners from each section:

In total I won one first and four second places. The embroidery above is mine. I reckon it’s a good 30 years old!

My other dredged up older make was Sheep. Bless him…

That’s definitely not the right card with him

I was also the entrant in the craft section who scored the most points and so won the craft cup!

So all in all a very good week. Hope you’ve had a good one.

Until next time.

Stitch markers, mugs, pictures and roving

Over the last couple of months I haven’t done half of the things I’ve meant to do.  One outstanding task, I’ve finally worked on is fully updating the Dartmoor Yarn Company website shop. Here’s what I’ve added…

Stitch MarkersKnitting and Crochet Stitch Markers

I absolutely love making stitch markers, but during November haven’t been able to make them quick enough to have any left after fairs to put in the shop. But finally there are some  for sale, both for knitters and for those who crochet…

Hand Embroidered Pictures

I confess I may have been avoiding putting these in the shop, because I don’t really want to part with them…

Mugs

I’m down to my last three…

Roving

This really should have been up before now!

And I’m sure everyone has their supply of Christmas colours for spinning or felting this year – but just in case, and there’s always next year…

Okay, so I’m not going to win an award for business woman of 2017, but sometimes there’s far more important things to do than update your web shop.
