Sunday Sevens #51

Here we are, week 51…we’ve almost made it to a full year of Sunday Sevens posts. I’ve been a busy busy bee this week, mainly with cooking & sewing. I’ve also been planning a special little something for our 1 year anniversary of Sunday Sevens NEXT WEEK!! Make sure to pop back next Sunday as I may have an exciting little post for you! :-0

In the meantime, here are 7 photographs from my week:

1. Started off the week with a chicken pasta salad. Homemade dressing too! It was lovely & was good for lunches for a couple of days too. Fussy Adam didn’t like it and only ate the chicken and pasta. Hhhhmmm!


2 & 3. After making my first Bonnell dress a couple of weeks ago, I spent this week perfecting the pattern and made 2 more wearable muslins. The ‘final’ dress is for a special little project I’m involved in which will go live on Friday 5th September. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I’ll be blogging about the muslins too shortly.



4. We had a poorly pup again this week. After doing a few things that weren’t really normal, I nipped Maisy up to the vet and it looks like she has a urinary tract infection. She is picking up now she’s had a few antibiotics but was super sleepy for a couple of days. She wouldn’t even get out of bed one morning ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


5. We tried cocoa crusted steaks for dinner one night – they were gorgeous even though we were unsure of what they would taste like!


6. I finished off some handmade postcards to send out.


7. Along with some fabric Artist Trading Cards. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I wasn’t sure what to expect at all really but they were really nice! Cocoa powder, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, salt & pepper ๐Ÿ˜€ Yum!

  1. I am loving your postcards and trading cards–so very cool! Did you do a post on those and I missed it? Poor Maisy; I’m glad she’s starting to perk up a little. Infections are yucky. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    1. She’s feeling much better now thankfully- she does know how to feel sorry for herself though! Dress posts will be coming over the next week or 2 so keep a look out ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Sorry to hear Maisy’s been unwell, but good to hear she’s getting better. Please give her a hug from me and a snuggle from Mr Hicks.

    1. Thank you! Adam turned his nose up to start with as he doesn’t like a couple of the ingredients in the rub, but I made them anyway and he really liked it ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Poor little Maisy, but happy that she is perking up a bit. Really love that orange and blue dress – looking forward to seeing the unveiling. And what pretty postcards you make, lovely to receive a handcrafted card!

  4. Aw poor Maisie ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ uti’s make adults feel proper terrible so must be hard for dogs as they don’t know what’s happening. Your foodie shots are making me hungry, I’m trying to be good!

  5. I’ve loved reading about your Bonnells this week, they have all been beautiful and the finish on them looks immaculate. I can’t wait to read the full blog post and see more pictures of you wearing them out.
    I’m also amazed by your art work! So beautiful! I bet you are looking forward to sending them out and seeing what you get in return.
    Poor Maisy – I haven’t done well at checking how she is I know ๐Ÿ˜” is she feeling better now? Has she finished her medicine?

Let me know what you think...
