Sunday Sevens #159 21.10.18

Hello, here’s this week’s rather brief Sunday Sevens – it’s been a bit busy today!


I love seeing these frangipani flowers when they’re in bloom. This lovely lot are by the side of the road near Commonwealth Park and they always make me smile when they appear.

Dressmaking class

It was all about the sleeves at my dressmaking class this week. Hopefully, I’ll be allowed to do some proper sewing very soon!!

Watercolour lesson

At my watercolour class this week I was unsure of what I’d like to paint so had a go at attempting a view from a photo. It was supposed to be a Spanish church on a hillside. Not my best one…

Lunch with a view

Mid week I had a lovely lunch with Mr Postcard at the most southerly restaurant in Gibraltar; Bistro Point. We had a nice meal with a stunning view. We watched the stormy rain clouds heading up the Strait towards us.

Happy post

My latest yarn purchase arrived in Gibraltar this week, ooh I’m being so good not cracking it open before finishing my current blanket project (see below ;-)).

Rainbow over the Rock

Can you make out that faint rainbow just above the centre of the photo? I went out for a walk on Friday morning (it was a bit wet and slippery for the Med Steps) and as I headed back north from Europa Point I spotted the beginnings of a rainbow up ahead.

Rainbow bobbles

I’m in the dog house, I started this blanket for Littlest before embarking on my Sandy Bay blanket . I have been asked frequently when it will be finished – I’m on it! Finishing off the border now!

As always I’m linking with Natalie from Threads and Bobbins for this weekly blog series.

  1. “Bistro Point” – the very name makes you want to go there, especially with a vista like that! That’s my kind of Happy Post, and I can feel how much you want to cast on. There’s nothing like a new yarn purchase to foster that feeling, is there? Good to see you continuing with both your dressmaking and watercolour classes – blimey, I’ve been away a long time!

    1. Don’t worry, I have been missing in action on the blog reading front. Some times life just gets in the way! The food was lovely – as well as the view. We have pledged to return with the Little Postcards for Sunday lunch one weekend.

      I have a confession to make, the yarn got the better of me, and I’ve started… couldn’t hold off any longer!!!
