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