Sunday Sevens #87

After some sporadic posting lately, my Sunday Sevens post is ready early. So early, in fact, that it was nearly titled Saturday Sevens, but that seemed a teeny bit boastful, don’t you think? If you’d like to know more about Sunday Sevens, pop over to Natalie’s blog, Threads and Bobbins, and check it out. It’s fun, easy, and anyone can join in.

Street Work


The City worked on our street for over a month to relocate the gas meters from the basements to new outdoor locations. Our tiny fence is countersunk so deep they couldn’t drill next to it to install the line; they had to go under the sidewalk instead.  IMG_6917Digging up the sidewalk was messy, but they poured a brand new one.

A day to dry, and our beautiful new sidewalk will be ready!

Around the Neighborhood


Our city has many, many interesting sculptures. This one took my fancy.

April showers brought May flowersIMG_6866We have tulips

IMG_6840So many colors


These are my favorite. Aren’t they spectacular?

Mother’s Day

IMG_6876Took mama out for dinner at a little bistro. We each had a fresh and fabulous salad, and took home this exquisite little pizza for tomorrow night. Yum!

A little outing

IMG_6940Just follow the signs to the alpacas….

IMG_6937This is Jenny and she’s just had her very first haircut. She was a patient client, with a patient, gentle shearer. Isn’t she pretty?


This wool was from the first of 14 alpaca shorn; it is soft as a cloud. Stuff of dreams.


Just added a few shreds of Romano cheese, a sprinkle of fresh parsley, and voila! A meal in minutes. Absolutely delicious!

They are not afraid

IMG_6807Out for a drive to a nearby park, we encountered a group of deer (poorly photographed). They watched as we slowed to a stop, and sauntered on up to greet us! Perhaps they are accustomed to receiving treats from travelers.

New fabric


And a new tunic is in the works.

That’s all folks! Hope you all have a most wonderful week.

  1. Did you get the opportunity to buy some alpaca wool? It looks so soft. I know I’ve said it before, but I love the way all the houses over there seem to have a front verandah. Great sculpture of the cat and bird – more birds on the tunic too, I see.

    • We didn’t buy any wool, mom was tired, but plan to go back. I can’t imagine anything softer! I love the front porches, too…..they just look so old fashioned and homey. I have one more piece of bird fabric, too. Perhaps some sort of intervention is in order. 😀

  2. Lovely photos, Jen – thank you! What an interesting neighbourhood, and it’s appreciated by so many (including those workers). Do like your bird fabric & am wondering where you found it – Joann’s? My quilting friend here is always good for a trip to Joann’s, particularly if she knows there might be bird fabrics
    Did yo find what you were looking for at B&N? Found that blogger you mentioned & had fun reading through some of it. Nice one to know – thank you!
    Now, about some alpaca for you . . . ! ! ! 😎

  3. Ooooh that stew sounds delish! One I may have to try I think 🙂 Funnily enough, I visited an Alpaca shop last week…I couldn’t get enough of how soft everything was! How exciting getting a new sidewalk 😀
