Sunday Sevens #53

Here we are – the first post into the second year of Sunday Sevens! Woohoo!
Last week’s post was the giveaway so I haven’t actually shown any of my photos for 2 weeks. So these photos are from the last 2 weeks and there’s more than 7 too! Enjoy πŸ™‚

1. We had a trip to the Melting Pot and I enjoyed the cheese & chocolate courses far too much!


2. My mum heard my cry for curry and she sent me a packet mix.


3. Maisy seems to be addicted to sniffing my cups of tea – strange puppy!


4. I made my second pocket letter for a swap.


5. We took Maisy for a walk by the bay and she decided to have some fun on the sand!

6. I took a few hours to go through my fabric stash and patterns. I wrote down fabric requirements for each pattern and then matched some of my fabric to projects. I’m hoping that this will let me use most of the fabric I already have but then if I want to buy any fabric, I can look at my list to see what pattern it would be good for. πŸ™‚

7. Speaking of new fabric -I found a couple of further sale bargains. A floral linen for $4 yd & a white/pink floral cotton voile for $3 yd.

8. I signed up for a fabric square swap through the pen pal site I use (IGGPPC) and have already started to receive some squares. We are hoping to do a quilt-a-long in October with the fabric we each receive. I’m also going to incorporate some older quilt blocks I received through a swap last year.

9. Today I’ve started my first pair of trousers! Eeeek!

  1. What a silly puppy you have there! Some good eats, though; I keep trying recipes for chicken korma and haven’t been satisfied with any of them, but if I find a good one I’ll let you know. I’m sure the pants will turn out great!

    1. That would be great – I would love to make a curry from scratch but I can’t find any curry paste or relevant spices on this side of the bay…though I’m sure that there’s an Eastern market around 2 hours away. Might have to have a trip there one day!

      1. I’ve actually found a lot of Indian spices at our local natural or health food store and Amazon carries curry paste, so that’s an option, too. Good luck!

  2. Love the pants fabric! Can’t wait to see them. And I also like your fabric vs pattern list, very organised! I’m currently trying to work my way through my own patterns and fabric too and not allowing myself to buy more… let’s see how long it lasts πŸ˜‰

    1. It’s a jazzy print isn’t it?! I feel like it’s really organised me to make more garments too now I know exactly what I have. I used to spend ages trying to work out what fabric to use with each pattern πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks – I think it will become a dress πŸ™‚ I’ve got a couple of patterns that require linen so I’m looking forward to using it! I think Maisy is getting camera shy; she tries to hide in the house when we try to snap her!

  3. Can’t beat a Schwartz mix! And Maisy – I hope you’ve told her that’s not a very ladylike way to lay on the beach! A friend of mines huge dog lays like that, it doesn’t look comfy but it must be! πŸ˜€

    1. You really can’t – we are hoping for a tikka masala next πŸ™‚ Maisy lays like that all the time – it must be comfy but it doesn’t look it at all :-/

  4. Us mums are good for things like that, aren’t we – are curries not easy to come by over there then? Maisy’s character is evident in all the photos you show us, she’s adorable. Lucky you with all that fabric to get through – good luck with your first trousers.

Let me know what you think...
