Sunday Sevens #70

Christmas done! New Year done! Parents home!…and relax! πŸ™‚ As much as I love having visitors and celebrating over the holidays, it isn’t half tiring! My parents went home yesterday after their 3 week stay so we have had a very relaxed weekend and now we will settle back into our little routine. I should imagine that there will now be more sewing craft photographs back in my future Sunday Sevens posts. Here are my photos from the last week! πŸ™‚

1. I FINALLY managed to get a good photo of the dogs together, and me of course!


2. The peaceful puppies didn’t stay still for long though. :-/


3. We go to a lovely Italian restaurant in Fairhope – they serve THE best filet steak I’ve ever tasted. We visited last week and sat in the piano bar rather than the actual restaurant; it was like being at a mini concert!


4. ENGLISH SAUSAGES!!!!! We found a local shop that stocks them AND good bacon! They were quite expensive but I forgot about that as soon as I bit into the amazing sausage sandwich. πŸ˜€


5. No words needed!


6. We also managed to try the little cafe which is just around the corner from us. This was the biggest salad I’ve ever eaten…yes, I did eat it all!


7. Today I’ve worked on a crate mat cover for the dogs. It was a huge fail so it’s gone into the bin as it’s past saving! I cut pieces incorrectly and attached 2 pieces the wrong way around. 😦

  1. Your pups are adorable! Is that Bangers you bought ? I love English sausages but can’t find anything here any more. Lovely photos πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ Yes they were pork bangers! They come from a company in Florida…I’m going to try and find if I can order from them directly!

    1. I didn’t actually realise how much I had missed them until they were cooking! I’ll look out for your post next week! Can’t wait πŸ˜€ xx

  2. I’m not sure I would be able to cope with out decent bacon, sausages are pretty important too…
    Shame about the sewing, some days are sent to try us…

  3. Lots of yummy food + adorable dogs = a great week! The puppies look so sweet together β€οΈπŸ’™ Sorry to hear your sewing didn’t go to plan – are you adapting & trying again?!

    1. They do have their sweet moments πŸ™‚ I think I will try another one but plan it properly this time! I measured quite a few bits wrong as I was distracted by Grey’s Anatomy! Ha!

  4. Finding “proper” British sausages has been a quest for this household, too! No luck yet, but on the plus side, we pretty much like all kinds of sausages, so we have plenty to eat while we’re searching. πŸ˜‰ I made sausage rolls on New Year’s Eve to nothing but compliments, so I guess we’re surviving (I didn’t mention the fact that the sausage used was actually seasoned TURKEY, and he didn’t ask.)

    I actually prefer the second pic of you and the dogs, as I suspect it’s more true to life. So sorry about the sewing problems, though; we all know what an excellent sewer you are, so I’m sure the next project will be perfect!

    1. These sausages actually have a Florida address on them so I’m going to see if I can find the company that sells them…I’ll let you know if I do! I just can’t get used to the turkey and chicken sausages over here; I’ve never had them before!
      I was distracted when sewing and I didn’t do the measurements properly so I knew it was my own fault – I’ll be trying an alternative pattern soon!

  5. I hope that sweet b/w polka dot managed to escape the bin? It’s awfully cute. The dogs are adorable, and certainly make you happy! Are they getting along well? We have some delicious chicken with apple sausage in a little market that features mostly local foods. Yummy.

    1. Yes I did save that small piece of fabric! It’s from an old cushion cover so I’ve got a couple of more squares too! The dogs are getting along well, though the rough play has been something I’ve had to get used to :-/ We have chicken sausages too in our local Fresh Market but sausages made out of chicken just seems wrong to me! Ha!

      1. Glad you saved the fabric. I liked the look of your sausage sandwiches, and in desperation at a late moment yesterday, I drove through a blizzard (ok, a flurry) to get some of those apple ones – but from a different store. Got the closest
        I could find, cooked them, pitched them. Perhaps you’re right about the chicken. πŸ˜‰

  6. Oh yes, the piano bar would be my choice, too, it sounds lovely! The smell of bacon cooking and the first bite into a sausage sandwich, mmmmm! I have no idea how they haven’t caught on around the world and I’d miss them too. Love the second photo of you and the dogs – classic!

    1. It really is a lovely place; I would eat there every week if I could! We will definitely be buying more bacon & sausage, now I know it’s available locally anyway!

Let me know what you think...
