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!
