Sunday Sevens 2018 #3

Hello! A little update on life for you all in the form of Sunday Sevens. Rosie is entertaining herself on her play mat so I’m speedily typing in the hope that she doesn’t get bored soon.

It was Mardi Gras season back in February and it was also reasonably cold for us. We bundled up and headed into town to catch some throws at a parade. Rosie loved watching the lights go by and even caught her own Moonpies. The following day, we nipped down to Fairhope to watch the Mystic Mutts parade…a parade for dogs! It was by far my favorite!

Mum’s Knitting Needle Case

When I started sewing more regularly (last August!) my Mum mentioned that she would like a knitting needle case as she couldn’t find one that matched the style she wanted.  My original thought was to make one for Christmas but I forgot and then by the time I remembered, I hadn’t got enough time.  So I set out to make one in July for her birthday – August 6th.

I had a good look around online to get some ideas for the one I wanted to make.  I wanted the make to be ‘fairly’ simple but also pretty and useful.  By combining a few ideas, I chose to make a roll with three horizontal sections for different sized needles.  I also want to add a bit of extra detail so I decided to quilt the outer piece of fabric.

Bathroom Makeover Part 1

A couple of weeks ago I was very daring and I bought a single crochet hook and a ball of yarn.  Hours of online research later (mainly Pinterest!), I have taught myself to crochet and have made items that I am already super pleased with!  The first was the hat that appeared in my #sundaysevens blog post.

The next thing I had my eye on was some crochet bunting.  The tutorial/pattern was very basic and I was a little dubious that it wouldn’t be very good.  However, it was easy to follow and produced some lovely little triangles that could be turned into bunting.

Our apartment is rented and furnished through the housing company that is linked with the company that Adam works for.  It is lovely, modern and simple; just the right size for us but the colour schemes are not ‘us’.  We like little pops of colour!  Yes, there are different colours around the apartment but they are mainly on the cream and brown spectrum.  This makes me a little sad.  So a few little projects popped into my head and here I am giving our apartment a little makeover!

Starting with the bathroom!
