Sunday Sevens (18th October 2015)

The Sunday Sevens series was created by Nat at Thread and Bobbins to share awesome and exciting things that don’t necessarily deserve a whole post of their own. I have lots and lots I want to share and hopefully this will be the perfect way.

And this week has been much better! I’m not back to pre-flare me just yet, but I’m able to function and my pain is sort of under control again so that’s a bonus. Plus I’ve been working on lots of crafty goodies 😀

1 – The week started with a trip to the library to thumb through lots of amazing books… I even borrowed a few of them.

2 – My stash busting blanket  went into hibernation this week to allow me to start on Christmas pressies. It’s mid-October and I hadn’t even started ooops.

3 – While at Knit and Natter I started this beauty (more on this in a full blog post later), I also started another Christmas gift that I shared with you on Friday.

4 – I met up with some friends at a Pamper Evening full of craft stalls and spied these crochet poppies on nearby lamp posts.

5 – At this event I bought myself a gorgeous beaded bracelet and some zombie earrings (perfect for our Zombicide board game sessions) from a very talented lady who loves beads. As well as some moulded crayons and a pretty little bow made by my friend Kiri from Raine-y Day Crafts.

6 – Friday was full of shopping for several birthdays that are coming up – but I was distracted by this Google display in Currys/PC World and left A to it while I had a play 🙂

7 – As Autumn is very much here now, we sorted the balcony out ready for the colder weather. The fake grass has been lifted and the soil in the planter turned over ready for whatever we decide to grow next. It all looks so bare! The last of our plants have been re-potted and bought inside 🙂

So overall, a fun week 🙂 Hope yours has been awesome too!

  2. I’m glad you are gradually improving. More and more of us are starting with Christmas gifts, it really won’t seem long now in crafting time! The yarn you are using is a gorgeous colour 🙂 x

    I’ve been quite tempted to make a couple of those crochet poppies this year! Library visit sounds great! I love looking at the craft books 🙂

      Yes I’ve seen a few crochet poppies and they look really effective 🙂 and i could have spent all day in the library… if I had tea and a blanket!

    Must be odd to see your balcony looking so bare. Love libraries, such a shame we’re running down and closing so many.

      Oh it is! But I’ll get used to it soon – the winds get really strong over winter (the open parkland doesn’t help) so it’s easier to bring it all inside. And yes it is such a shame – I went to the bigger one on town (it’s attached to the college) as there’s a lot more choice 🙂
