Sunday Sevens #84

Another late one for me! But I have managed to pin & comment on all the other lovely Sunday Sevens posts from other bloggers…I think I have anyway – just let me know if I’m missing anyone! Here are seven photos from my week:

1. After an exhausting weekend, the puppies were very tired and slept on me for ages again!

Goals: February 2016

Despite having a few lazy days in January, I feel like I’ve actually had a productive month.  My goals were met with ‘mostly’ success AND I’ve also managed to work out at least 3 times each week, which wasn’t on my original plan for January!

Let’s have a look at the goals I set in January:

I FINISHED THE WESTIE CROSS STITCH! WOOOOOHOOOO!!!  Now I just need to decide what to do with it. 🙂
I also finished the vintage dress, repaired the doggy car seat and attempted the crate mat covers….that still counts, right?! The only thing I didn’t manage was the quilters coasters for our living room.
Finished All The Light We Cannot See and I’m half way through The Man In The High Castle.
We worked really hard on saving money in January and I feel like we’ve made a great start to the year. We didn’t even splurge on Amazon.:-)
I managed at least 2 dog walks everyday, not three everyday but I’m happy with what I did manage with them.
I didn’t start the crochet blanket at all – the only one of my goals that I didn’t meet!

Sunday Sevens #72

My my, have you seen all that snow on the East coast of the US?! Luckily we just had the wind and rain from that storm but my thoughts definitely go out to all the people who are stuck in their homes for a while!

It’s turned really cold for us this week though…I’ve even had to put the heating on! I finally feel like we are back to our normal routine this week, and I’ve actually managed to get quite a bit done around the house & with ongoing projects too.

Here are my seven photographs from this week – mainly doggy photos!

1/2. Maisy and Buzz have started to be even closer to each other this week. Buzz really made me giggle with the way he was laying on the sofa so I had to take a photo!

Goals: January 2016

I sat down last week to review the goals that I set for myself in December and realised that even though I only set four small goals, I was probably a little ambitious given the Christmas season, my parents coming to stay, us taking a holiday & getting a new puppy!  With that being said, this post is quite a short one as I didn’t really make that much progress on the goals set in December!

Goals for January:

  1.  I’m almost finished with one more colour on the Westie cross  stitch!  I’ve not included a photo this time around as you really can’t see the colour progress!

2.  The vintage dress didn’t get finished in December so that remains on my list of makes.  I also need to repair a doggy car seat, make covers for dog crate mats & make some coasters for our living room using the fabric I received in my #stitchingsanta present.

Hello There 2016!

A new year means a ‘new year’ post of course.  I’ve already read lots of resolution, goal & list posts and I must admit that I really enjoy reading them.  I find it so interesting to see how people evaluate their lives and review them to move forward in the following year.

The last year was the first full year where I blogged from January to December.  I’ve really loved every minute of it.  When I started blogging, I originally thought that my blog would be based on sewing and travelling; however, i’ve found that my Sunday Sevens and monthly goals posts have added more of a broader lifestyle theme to the blog with sewing running through too.  I’ve also enjoyed reviewing a few products here and there, and I do feel like I’ve only chosen things to review that I like rather than whatever is available out there.
