Sunday Sevens (3rd January 2016)


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.

Finally back to normality! I’m glad to be getting back into a routine – a fun as all the Christmas celebrations are the lack of sleep and crummy food is rubbish for helping me pace myself. Yay to routine and January.

No photos of a mad and drunken New Year from us. We were asleep by 10pm New Years Eve and not even the fireworks woke us up. A was back to work and up at 4.30am New Years Day, I was just feeling the busy Christmas catch up on me so have had a weekend of rest and Disney films. Anyways … some photos …

1 – We finally got the blackberries we foraged out of the freezer and made a start on our blackberry wine. Out of shot there’s also some sloe vodka and slow wine on the go too mmmmm.


2 – I found a great little glass vase in the charity shop. The cashier said it was perfect for tulips in the Spring … but I had my my spare hooks/needles in mind for it. Frees up room in my pencil case 🙂 (apologies for the bad pic … light has been awful this week!)


3 – This crazy pile of yarn needed taming …

4 – … so out came the wool winder. I love this thing.


5 – A’s best man gave us this awesome organiser. Planning can officially commence! We have SO many ideas 😀


6 – It was a cold, grey first weekend in January so out came my hot water bottle cover kit that Dad got me for my birthday. Got to love a nice easy bit of crafting 🙂


7 – And finally lots of progress has been made on the circular shawl blanket. My designated pile of stash yarn is shrinking …


Happy New Year to you all!

    It’s quite nice to get settled after Christmas isn’t it! Your vase was a great find for your needles & I love the look of the wool winder; I don’t really have enough wool yet to invest in one though 🙂

    Yay for scrapping-down and blackberry wine!
    I’ve re-discovered crochet and am making granny square projects to deal with some of my stash and the wool winder is totally saving my sanity – I love those things 😀

        And isn’t that always the way? Tons of yarn but not the one you need 😀 I’m going to start socks in a couple of weeks and I’m hoping we can do another live knit at the end of the month.

        As soon as my yarn gets here I’ll be casting on 🙂 can’t wait!! And a live knit at the end of the month would be awesome – I’ll keep my eyes pealed for a date.
