Sunday Sevens – Week 92 ( I think? )

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to my latest version (and I’ve no idea what the real number is, let alone my own) of Sunday Sevens, invented by Natalie, over at Threads and Bobbins. Check out the non-rules, and see if you’d like to join in.

It seems as if we’ve been housebound lately, but I do have some photos of short strolls and wanderings around the house and environs.

Feline Shenanigans

Breaking Bread

My hubby is quite the bread maker…this lumpy darling is my first loaf. Yum!

Cleaning Up

Lots of bare patches to fill in after recent street work was completed. One day as I watered, this little fellow jumped in for a quick shower.

Kiddie Garden

The children work this garden in the elementary school around the corner.

Empty Room

IMG_7190Ah yes, more renovating. Much as I would love this to become my dedicated sewing/dressing room, I believe it will be the new master bedroom.

Wise Words

This sign at the zoo is a bit hidden, I feel it should be more prominently displayed.

Out for a stroll

All kinds of families enjoy a nice summer outing.

Have a most marvelous week everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday Sevens – Week 65

Hi all, welcome to this week’s Sunday Sevens. What is Sunday Sevens? Well, it is a place to blog about the little things of your week – those that might not merit a whole post of their own. You only need seven (or so) pictures. Easy! It was created by Natalie, over at Threads and Bobbins. Why not visit her site, check out the non-rules of Sevens, and think about joining in?

Hide and seek, with feline

We can still see you, Molly.

Santa’s on his way

IMG_5458 (2)This handsome Santa is in front of an upscale jewelry store and a Pilates studio. The small, crowded shopping center (where I needed to pick up a bag of coffee) had large, elaborate decorations; he was my favorite.

Christmas Secrets

What might become of this little grouping?

Early, Accidental, Unexpected Presents

IMG_5460

Working without my sewing machine and rummaging in mom’s old sewing cabinet for necessities. (Oh the hours I’ve spent there!) And look what I found! Vintage Ginghers. In their original box. And now they are mine. I suspect there will a shipment of vintage goodies headed to NY to greet me when I arrive home. Oh happy day!

Sewing Plans

SWAP 2016 JEN ideas board

To be precise, Sewing With  A Plan. Since many of my sewing plans have been temporarily derailed, I’m hoping I can still manage the SWAP 2016. This is my very preliminary idea and it will undoubtedly be revised as it seems quite mundane after more thought. Fingers crossed!

Words of wisdom

cello03

I recently read a great quote from world-renowned cellist Pablo Casals on Facebook  and decided to look into it. Here is what I found:

“THE MUSICIAN: Pablo Casals, who performed at the UN recently, is 81. He agreed to have Robert Snyder make a movie short, “A Day in the Life of Pablo Casals.” Snyder asked Casals, the world’s foremost cellist, why he continues to practice four and five hours a day. Casals answered: ‘Because I think I am making progress.’ ” From The Quote Investigator.

Stitch on, everyone and have a most glorious week!
