sunday sevens #22

Natalie, over at Threads and Bobbins, came up with the idea of Sunday Sevens. Anyone can join in, and you don’t have to do a post every Sunday or have 7 photos. Or even post on Sunday. It’s a way to keep your blogging hand going when nothing major has had time to happen …

… in this case, just bits & pieces getting finished, or progressing, or starting. You can decide which is which. 😉

Surprise! Decided not to mess with any ties (or buttonhole, so I’ve put off yet again trying to figure out this dratted item).

Sewed the fabric ends together, cut off the excess, and sewed up the waist seam. Have worn them several times around the complex, and still haven’t shortened them. But it’s still only June . . .

 

Late last week my new bread machine arrived. Have been collecting ingredients since then, so a first loaf is imminent.

A bigger box arrived Friday. Wonder what was in it. Will show you these three dye pens. That’s not all, but the rest hasn’t arrived yet, he-hee!

A kimono jacket finally got cut out Saturday. . . and Sunday . . . and Monday. More on that anon. After yesterday’s decisions, it was time to Step Sway From The Project.  But a few more items are in the wings, ready for the cutting process…

And a picture almost as good as watching paint dry: Our parking lot asphalt drying in last week’s heat. Yes, the parking lots had been getting a bit scruffy, so they’ve been resurfaced, and bright new parking stripes added. Tomorrow should be the last day of traveling hither, thither, and yon trying to get to the mail, the bus stop, or the grocer.

Hope you’re having a good week, whichever side of the equator you’re enjoying.

Since I’ve several new toys to play with, maybe I should also submit this for this week’s challenge over at 52 Week Photo Challenge

    I bet your house smells divine with your new bread maker in operation! You can’t beat the smell of fresh bread. And I can’t wait to see all these sewing projects you’ve got going on!

      Thank you so much! Yes, have loved the smell of yeast rising & bread baking since mum made bread decades ago whilst I was first in school.
      I do hope to get these fabrics made up quickly as I’m quite keen to be wearing them! Alas, the black jacket is being quite a problem getting all the pieces cut out. Heigh Ho!
