sunday sevens #28-ish

so sweet!

isn’t she adorable?! pick th’ litter & pedigrees up the elbow (liberty/yorkshire)!

All it took were 3 days in a row of 50’s percentage humidity and temps in the low 80’s, and I was off, thinking about Autumn & Winter wardrobe options.

Unfortunately, Summer Returned.

[Insert expletive of choice]

The rest of the week looked a bit like these photos, and apologies if there aren’t seven.

Natalie, who came up with the concept of Sunday Sevens, is re-e-e-al generous with the “rules.” 😘

Moving on, I’ll emphasise the wonderful package FULL of goodies from bestie Ali over in Yorkshire, a much happier note to end on than the weather! 😉

Edited to include Ali’s blog & Fabworks Online. Fabworks was super helpful, but their shipping charges to U.S. are exorbitant (just my thought; so much less $$ for fabric 😢). Fingers crossed that changes.

    The doilies are so cute, and you’re right, the stitching is really dainty! It’s funny, I went to a knitting circle recently and a lady brought along two teddys that her and her friend had crocheted using the exact same pattern, yarn and hook, and they were completely different sizes. It’s amazing what a difference tension can make. I hope it cools down enough for you to have your yorkshire puds – I’m considering doing a roast for dinner but I won’t have any problem with the oven heating up my flat 😉 xx

      Yes, tension can make quite a difference & how interesting to have seen those two examples!
      I’m just hoping I don’t have to wait until December for it to cool off down here! A roast?! Enjoy your nice warm flat whilst it’s cooking!
      Oh! Been meaning to suggest something for your trip: Both of you should get some little squeeze bottles of saline nasal spray. (It’s just salt water & a bit of preservative, so don’t pay $$$.) You should both spray your noses at least once an hour whilst on those long flights to & from, and you’ll be spraying just as often whilst travelling around semi-arid (and maybe still smouldering) California. It should keep your nasal passages much happier & not so prone to infections from the shock of no humidity after Scotland!

    Nice week here (despite the awful east coast weather), sweet little mouse from Ali, pretty curtains-to-be, and yummy chocolates most welcome. And oh how I love a good expletive! 😉
