It’s Sunday and time for Sunday Sevens, thought up by Natalie, of Threads and Bobbins. Anyone can participate whenever, so feel free to join in.
Where has the week gone? It’s already past the middle of September!
Last weekend was Last Night at the Proms and I was so preoccupied with breakdowns I forgot to listen. AGH!!!
But the entire 3 ½ hours are available for listening, and a little for viewing, depending on what country you’re watching from.
And no, you don’t have to listen to it all in one go. Above the line in the Iplayer are little squares, indicating where each piece starts. Hover your cursor and titles appear.
Nothing like the zaniness of the second half to put me back on track. (Yes, I sing along.) Only available for 3 more weeks, so listen soon. ⌛️
I attacked the UFO/alteration pile last week, and managed to overcome a reluctance to use a twin needle as well as reduce the pile, and am feeling quite chuffed. Below, the pale green is a men’s silk shirt re-do, liberated from a charity shop. The rest are updates to existing makes.
this completes the set, made from 1m fabric from white tree fabrics
a twin needle project – re-cut the neck & arms to cooler/looser size
adding a pocket, maybe even 2
another double needle project, this just finishing the arms & neckline
added elastic to shoulders to pull them it
Am also debating my next project, and what thread to use. I’d thought white originally, but looking amongst my blue spools saw variegated. It looks tempting, and as this is another lounge around home project, only my eyes would be offended. What do you think? The fabric came from a trade with Anne/Compulsive Seamstress, and the pattern from Ali/Thimberlina.
looked everywhere for a frozen breakfast like this & we’ve n-o-t-h-i-n-g over here to compare. it’s all waffles or pancakes or dinky muffins with egg & bacon. i want beans, too!
what do you think about this thread?
Lastly, my UK DVD of Agatha Raisin finally arrived. Am a fan of both author M.C. Beaton’s series(es?), Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth, so was delighted to see Agatha being made for telly. The U.S. compatible version isn’t available yet, so am very grateful my hardware/software plays PAL.
meet the adorable Hodge (and Ms. Jensen)
However, the movie raises two questions:
- Why can’t I find frozen breakfasts like Agatha’s over here?
- Is everyone flipping back & forth doing video calls like Agatha, her therapist, and Roy?
Hope everyone has a lovely week planned, and we all survive the regional weather shifts!
