Sunday Sevens #110 19.11.17

Hello and welcome to this week’s Sunday Sevens (or in this case Sunday Sixes). I hope you have had a good week…

Sunny Sunday

Sadly I wasn’t feeling too well last Sunday. I was laid low with a bad fluey cold. Mr Postcard went out though and took this lovely sunny photo. Look at that blue sky!

Buttonholes

by Tuesday I was feeling much better and back at sewing. The time had come to put buttons and their button holes on my blouse. Slightly daunted by the fact I haven’t done one in about a year, I practiced on scrap fabric and put off doing it until next week!

I must clean my windows

Tuesday’s sunset through a dirty sash window – sorry Mum, I’ve let you down! It still looked lovely despite the muck!

Coffee & crochet

Two of my favourite things in the world beginning with ‘c’ apart from … chocolate! I had a lovely catch up with an old friend who’s new to crochet this week. We have to spread the love haven’t we?!

Gibraltar Literary Festival

The Gibraltar Literary Festival was back this week. I only managed to get to a few events this year, as I was busy with other things but a post about my experiences this year will be on its way soon.

Watercolour rooftops

At watercolour class this week, I did some more work on this painting of Gibraltar’s town and Upper Town. Striking the balance of what detail to include and what to miss out is proving tricky.

It’s just a Sunday Six this week I’m afraid, a lot of what I got up to wasn’t really photo worthy, so I shan’t bore you with the mundane stuff. I was hoping to have my autumn leaves crochet project finished by now but that’ll have to wait until next week…

I’m linking with Natalie of Threads & Bobbins for this weekly blog series.

  1. Seriously, is that the view from your window? It’s incredible – no wonder you’re inspired with art and craft! Sorry you’ve been down with a cold and thanks to Mr P for taking a photo on your behalf. How nice to have a keen beginner to share your love of crochet with. I’m a little in awe of your watercolour painting – all those ‘layers’ of rooftops to contend with.

    1. I know Sheila, it’s truly amazing isn’t it? I am so lucky to live where I do. Yes good old Mr P stepped in and helped me out this week. I’m really enjoying this painting at the minute, but I need to know when to stop and leave some of it to the viewer’s imagination rather than getting bogged down in detail. We’ll see where I end up! Thank you for your lovely comment 🙂
