Sunday Sevens #50

For once, I’m doing an early post! I’m planning on being super productive today, so thought I would get Sunday Sevens done and dusted early 🙂 Enjoy!

1. We dog sat for a couple of days at the start of the week. It was lovely for Maisy to have a play friend and a garden to run around in. Sophie dog was really well behaved too!


2. The house we were dog sitting in is much closer to woodland than we are at our apartments. That meant unexpected visitors! I didn’t even notice this little snake on the doorstep until something tickled my foot – it was close to going up my trouser leg!




4. I tried my first ever s’more with the Dairymilk chocolate we had bought. They are delicious!


5. I drove over the bay to (finally!) get my drivers licence sorted and I called into Joanns Fabric after. The dress form I had been keeping an eye on was half price and cheaper than Amazon so I bought it! I can’t wait to get using it 🙂


6. I also bought a few fabrics! The bottom centre and left were $2.50 yard and will be used as dress linings. All the others were in the sale AND had 50% off. The bottom right is linen ($3 yard), top right is jersey ($3 yard), top centre is cotton lawn ($3 yard) and the top left is a stretchy denim ($4 yard)… all bargains!


7. I set up a craft/painting station to start some handmade postcards and Artist Trading Cards. The postcards I have planned require a few layers of paint + other materials so they are drying between other jobs.

  1. Aw, bet Maisy was over the moon to have a buddy, but not sure about the snake making one in too! Think I’m having some shopping trip envy, especially over your patterned stretch denim, have you decided what you’re going to make yet with everything? 🙂

    1. She loved having a play friend! It was nice to see them just playing and then laying down together 🙂 I’ve almost decided what I’m going to make with them but then I keep changing my mind – I’m thinking ultimate trousers or capri pants with the denim?!

    1. It was quite a small snake – in fact the smallest I’ve ever seen so it didn’t bother me that much! I still got Adam to move it though :-0

  2. WHAT possessed you to even mention the snake thing?!? Now I’m going to have the creepy-crawlies for hours . . . .

    But more importantly, did you find the Dairy Milk to be the same as the stuff in the UK? I thought that I had heard the Cadbury chocolate you get in the U.S. isn’t as good, but hopefully you didn’t find that to be the case. And congrats on the dress form–I bet that’s going to be a big help!

    1. So the Dairymilk was slightly different but I’ve heard that the stuff in the UK has changed since Hershey started owning it so I don’t mind – it’s still my favorite!
      Sorry about giving you the creepy-crawlies! Ha!

  3. Ewww, not such a fan of snakes. But the doggies, big yes! Cadbury? Yes! And goodness, what a deal on fabrics. Can’t wait to see what they will become. (Really like those arrows)

    1. Yes it was a great deal – I’m so tempted to go back even though I don’t really need any more at all! The arrow fabric is the lining of a turquoise dress that will be blogged about in a couple of weeks 😀

    1. S’mores are crackers, chocolate & mashmallows…but I think the crackers are more like thin digestive biscuits, not really what I would call a cracker! I think traditionally you are supposed to melt the marshmallow on a fire and then make the s’more sandwich, but I did them under the grill 🙂 You should try them!

Let me know what you think...
