Sunday Sevens (10th April 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.

I had a lovely week… lots of rest, mixed with some crochet and a fun fun weekend! Here goes:

1 – Our 2016 vegetable garden on the balcony is underway! Parsnips, carrots, spinach, garlic and mint so far.

2 – I’ve picked up my circular blanket again this week and making some good progress. I equally love and hate how simple this is. Love it because I don;t need to think, so it’s the perfect bad day project. Hate because it’s so simple that I definitely need to be watching/listening to something in the background to keep me awake. The stash yarn pile I put aside for it is diminishing fast! I think I have about 7 more rounds to go … then I have to figure out how to border it.

3 – I needed another simple project this week an this flower brooch kit that came with Simply Crochet fitted the bill perfectly. And look how pretty it looks on my Cath Kidston bag – a match made in heaven.

4 – On Saturday I attended a Girlguiding County Training Day where I refreshed my first response certificate for another three years as well as doing a few crafty bits … including these delicious camp doughnuts! Basically a jam sandwich dipped in pancake mix, fried and then rolled in sugar. YUM!

5 – I LOVE living by the sea – fresh seafood from French’s Shellfish Bar. I tucked into some mussels and crayfish tails.

6 – There was a Folk and Ale Festival on at the end of Southend Pier this weekend, so we enjoyed some sea shantys while drinking some tasty cider.

7 – The Thameside Mummers performed at the Folk and Ale Festival, which was hilarious! And look – I spy a crochet shawl and bonnet on the ‘old lady’.

Now to spend some time resting again and hopefully get back to my routine pretty quick! Have a lovely week ☺

    Lovely week. Good luck on the blanket. My son lived for a while in Southend so I love the occasional glimpses you share.

      Thanks! It started as a scrap yarn project to use up stash… but I’ve already filled the gaps made by these yarns 😂 and glad the glimpses remind you of this lovely town – I should take more photos when I’m out and about… I am terrible at remembering.
