Sunday Sevens 2018 #5

So we are more than half way through the year and I’m only on my fifth Sunday Sevens post!  At least they are still going though…and I keep seeing a few other bloggers do their posts regularly so that’s always nice to see too.

I feel like recently I’ve done more sewing than I have done in a while so I think I’m starting to get back into the swing of things. I’ve got a few future projects lined up that I’m excited to dig into.  I’ve been trying to get things done while Rosie takes her afternoon nap but sometimes she joins me by the sewing table as you will see below.  Here’s a couple of mid project photos.  Both projects will be blogged about soon!

An Update About Me!

I decided to update my ‘about’ page so thought I would also publish it as a little blog post too. Enjoy!

A little while ago I began blogging about what my life was like after we moved over to Alabama from the UK. The blog mainly consisted of posts about what I was currently making and eating. Over time, Threads & Bobbins has evolved to be a broad Lifestyle blog with my sewing projects at the core.

I’ve been sewing for a while, dipping in and out of projects whenever time has allowed. Back in school, I completed my Textiles course and did reasonably well. My Grandma had always helped me with projects I had in mind growing up so I feel like sewing has just always been in my life. More recently, I’ve been sewing some of my own clothes…some of which have been great and others not so. But that’s one of the things I love about sewing; it’s a huge learning curve and with every garment I face new challenges.

Sunday Sevens 2018 #2

Well, this week for us has been a homey one. It reached -7°c at one point, which is the coldest it’s been here in Alabama while I’ve lived here! There was also a ‘State of Emergency’ issued for the flu epidemic. We decided to stay at home all week and get cosy by the fire. Rosie and I spent most of the week in our loungewear!

Sunday Sevens 2018 #1

It really does feel like such a long time since I last wrote a Sunday Sevens post but I’m starting the year as I plan to go on. Today’s post is a little bit of a catch up of little things from the last couple of months and in true tradition, it’s a day late!

It was my birthday back in December and Adam bought me a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I’d been eyeing one up for a while and had heard a lot of great things about them. I’ve had a basic mixer for a while but as it was one from the UK, the voltage was different so it didn’t mix very well. I was very pleased to get this and it’s made baking so much quicker!

Here’s To 2018

Happy New Year to everyone!

2017 ended a little differently for us this year as we became parents!  At the end of October I was put on bedrest & given some medication to keep Rosie cooking for a little while longer.  Once I came off the medication, she decided to come 2 weeks early and was born on the 20th November.  She is just so precious and we are absolutely loving every moment with her…even the sleepless nights…sort of!
