Sunday Sevens 2019 #32

Welcome to my Sunday Sevens – a post where I share seven (or so) photos of my week away from the blog. But before I post any photos here’s a quick one question quiz…

What was the most important thing that happened this week in England?

The first December election was called since 1910?


England made it to the final of the Rugby World Cup?


The Bake Off Final?




No, the most important event this week was Harry’s Birthday!


We bought him some new squeaky tennis balls…

Kong Balls00

I’m not one for making dogs cakes – especially goldies with their sensitive stomachs – but Harry did have a extra treats and a vegetarian pig’s ear to celebrate…


Of course the most important event of the year has to be offset…

England lost the rugby despite the boys support…


The weather has been even wetter than ever. I’ve never seen the River Okement this full…


With all the wet weather I stayed in and caught up with chores, including resurrecting the bowl of cacti I made lovely littlest nearly 3 years ago.

Of course some other lovely things happened too…

I received a photo of  some Santa Sacks knitted from my Santa Sack pattern. The lady who sent it has made 42 in total – Not sure I’ve made that many!


And Lovely Husband bought a magnificent pine cone back from the woods to draw.


I haven’t drawn it yet, but was so impressed with it I’m displaying it on the coffee tale.


Hope you’ve had a great week.

Until next time,

Sunday Sevens – 29th October

Joining in again this week with Sunday Sevens – started by Nathalie at Threads and Bobbins – sharing seven (or so) pictures of  the week beyond the blog.

Last Sunday we went of a walk along the River Okement.  It’s several years since we’ve been up there and we’d forgotten what a scramble it can be in places.



On Monday the tree surgeon removed a dangerous bow from one of our trees, so LH spent a happy afternoon with his chainsaw dismantling it…


Meantime prepared for Stitch Fest. There was sewing…



…and I got to play with my new wool winder…


But it wasn’t all hard work. On Wednesday we did the pub quiz with our lovely next door neighbours and won for the fist time in months!


And on Friday I visited The Peter Tavy Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers annual exhibition.  Here’s a few of my favourite exhibits…

A gradient knitted bag…


This shawl was cobweb fine. A real work of art, but I’d be terrified of wearing in and ruining it…


Optical illusion weaving. Not sure if you’ll be able to see the two different ways the blue one appears close to and further away, but fingers crossed…



And finally, I couldn’t resist taking a pic of this cutie…


Hope you’ve had a great week!
