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 continue to post my goals for the coming week to see if that helps me get them achieved.

*Second attempt as everything disappeared from my last attempt!

  1. I have been really struggling this week, I haven't been feeling well and have been really lethargic, Its been a bit of a mission to get anything done. But on top of all of that I have not been sleeping that well either, to help myself relax before going to be I have been doing some Zentangles. It took me a few days to get this page finished.

  2. I have managed to get a little bit of work done for the green dress. These Rhinestoned bits of lace will form a border between the two parts of the bodice.

  3. In an attempt to get something done I felt like creating with my hands and rifled through my wool stash to find something that matches the variegated wool I used for my head band and found this.

  4. I swatched this bit of brioche stitch to see how the two wools worked together as they are different thicknesses. I asked Instagram whether to choose the top or bottom style, they picked the top...

  5. ... But I went with the bottom anyway. Mwahaha power!  I just felt since the blue was thinner it had better definition this way round, and the grey changes to turquoise further along the wool.

  6. Today I feel a lot better and decided that I would make something from my Feb Burda magazine. And this old blind fabric seemed to fit the bill for a top.

  7. This is how it looks at the moment,  just waiting to hem the bottom and cuffs

  8. This is what my cowl looks like at the moment. Do I make it bigger or not?

    This is where I have got to with my cowl so far. It seems very warm but I am wondering if it is long enough or not. Will it slouch down too much over time/when I take the circular needle out of it???

Because of how hard this week has been I am not going to promise myself too much for next week. My aims are:

to do more… just get out of bed in the morning and do something, anything…

I’m going to try and finish off a few of my makes that I still need to sort out. Bind some necklines hem some tops… If possible make myself some plain T-shirts.

I’m also going to try and sort my fabric stash out. See what I have and make possible plans for what to make with it.

Possibly update my sewing book with what I have sewn recently and modifications I made, before I forget them all.

So much for not making many plans… What are your plans?

      Thanks, Unfortunately that is ALL that I did, I don’t work (at the moment). I spend a few hours at my grandparents house ever day but that is it.
      It seemed like a massive challenge last week to do anything more than that, but so far it looks like this week is going to be much better 🙂

      Thanks. Yeah I need to keep reminding myself that. I’m back to work in the middle of march. Two months with out my sewing machine, another reason why I feel I need to be productive now…

    The cowl is coming along nicely, and the colors are lovely. Some say plans are made to broken…I don’t think so necessarily, but sometimes they morph a bit, or take a little longer. Hope you’re feeling better by now! 🙂
