staying indoors, a.k.a. sunday sevens #24

Well, it’s been entirely too hot to mess about outdoors this week, so plenty of things got postponed.

But that made time for indoor activities, like sewing. (heh-heh!)

And also allows this to be submitted for Ailsa’s Travel Photo Challenge (vicarious travel, that is).

  • Went to Washington, D.C. on Monday
  • Ventured to South Africa & New Zealand, via England & California with fabrics
  • The book is from Glasgow, Scotland, so won’t be “edited for Americans.” Yeah!
  • And those peaches traveled across state lines, just for me to enjoy.

He-he-heh! Tad bit o’ stretchin’ the travel, eh?

If you’d like to find out what a “Sunday Seven” is, check out Natalie’s post over here.

Herewith is my brief review of the week, sans too much hot air. Hopefully. 😉

May your weekend and coming week be blessed by beneficent breezes!

    The peaches and ginger look delicious! Forever jealous of your hot weather. I read (and watched) a lot of Enid Blyton when I was little. I love the idea of the famous five and going on adventures! Now I realise some of them were inappropriate, but the aesthetic still appeals 🙂

      Thank you, but you can have our hot weather, Lovely One. Ple-e-ease! ! !
      Didn’t know Blyton was on telly as well. Hm. As with other decades old literature, sometimes it’s not too appropriate in today’s world.

    Can you recant the wish for breezes please? The wind and rain have destroyed my gazebo! I grew up on Enid Blyton, as have all my children. They’re brilliant and I remember enjoying the Naughtiest Girl In The School (Malory Towers) series as a ten year old. Better late discovering them, than never:)

      Recanting – recanting! Sorry ’bout that. (Breezes went out for tea w/o permission, & gales snuck in. Bad breezes for leaving at the wrong time!)
      Naughtiest Girls – is that in the Malory Towers series, which seem to go numerically by terms? Things sometimes gets confused, because titles are often changed before publishing over here.

        I might have got that wrong as it was so long ago – her name was Elizabeth, anyway. The Adventures of the Faraway Tree and The Wishing Chair were my absolute favourites, and for my children, too. Fantastic for young childrens’ imaginations:)

      Thank you! We do like to keep our hand in, don’t we? It’s just everything else doesn’t necessarily follow along . . . especially when it’s hovering around 100 in the shade!

    Glad to see you’re using your bread maker! Practice makes perfect and I’m sure your next loaf will be! Looking forward to seeing that finished garment! What exactly is snug hug?

      Thank you! I’m a slow bread-eater, so hope you’re not breathlessly awaiting that next loaf.
      Snug Hug, which I got from fabric.com,, is a woven rayon bias binding a lot of sewers use for seam binding, because it’s rayon & thin & soft. Comes in a zillion colours, but over here you have to purchase by the spool, at $10 per. So I’ve got basic black & white. Hope this helps.
      Jump in anyone else, especially if you’re also in the UK, as I don’t know about that retail market.

        I don’t think we have Snug Hug over here but I could be wrong. I have bound my seams with standard bias binding but I must admit it was a bit bulky! Sounds like useful stuff!
