Sunday Sevens #9

      8 Comments on Sunday Sevens #9

Welcome to this weeks instalment of Sunday Sevens from Natalie at Thread and Bobbins, posting 7 photos of your week that wouldn’t warrant blog posts of their own. This week I am also going to post my goals for the coming week to see if that helps me get them achieved.

  1. The week started off well with a delivery of fabric from Tia Knight. The three on the left were for the Latin dresses and the ones on the right are for me :)

  3. Ok so I never use pins, well almost never. But underlining this swimsuit took All of the Pins!!

  4. Nikki came over on Friday and as usual brought me lots of goodies. One of which was this bed base, it is amazing how much difference having a bed base can make compared to what I have had for the last 4 moths of a mattress straight on the floor

  5. The last minute swimsuit making was in aid of this. A spa day at the Marriot in Bournemouth. Which was wonderful, but unfortunately I had a number of knots in my shoulders and seem to have picked up some bruising from the massage

  6. We had afternoon tea, which had too much cake to sandwich ratio for our liking but was very nice.

  7. So our friend Aneesa decided that she had never had a chance to wear a proper ballroom dress so tried on 'Belle'. Much twirling ensued.

Goals: This week I plan to:

  • Finish as much as possible on the Green Dress and create some more rhinestone embellishments
  • Finish cutting (making) the pattern pieces for the Purple Dresses. (at least in one size!)
  • Eat all the fruit and veg I have. To eat healthily and not let food go to waste.
  • Make a few basic white Renfrew T-shirts.
  • Post at least two blog posts.

Lets see how this setting goals thing goes. Hopefully it gives me a bit of a kick to get things done and focus my time management better. Is any one else struggling with this at the moment?

      Thanks, the purple and the grey are for Latin dresses so will take a little longer to come together, but hopefully I’ll get something made with the others this week..

      Thanks, I’m not sure if I would have considered the swim suit if I hadn’t made 4 leotards in the last week/10days… It is basically the same pattern but with underlining as well.

    I can’t imagine making a swimsuit! Love your Oslo sweater (it looks like my kind of comfy), and the spa day sounds so delightful. Very pretty quilt, too! Hope you achieve your week’s goals, and yes, I have also have issues with time management. Sigh.

      Lol yeah I think I only considered it because of the large amounts of leotards I have been making lately, its just the same pattern with underlining to make sure it wasn’t see-through.
      I do have to admit to not making that quilt, it is one from Ikea that Nikki bought me for a present a couple of years ago. One day I will make one that big… Maybe…
