Sunday Sevens #162 11.11.18

Hello there, I hope you’ve had a good week. It’s been a busy one as usual – it rarely isn’t to be honest! But all is well I’m pleased to report.

Sunday Sevens is a bit depleted this week, I don’t know why, but I haven’t taken many snaps this week! Anyway here’s a slimmed down version…

Dressmaking class

Well it was a week of cutting this week…56 pieces to be exact. I’m starting my jacket for real, all my outer bits, pink lining and interfacing is cut ready to be sewn together… I’m looking forward to this! No zips!!

Moody skies

On Wednesday evening the grey clouds parted and these beautiful shafts of sunlight lit up the other side of the Bay. So pretty.

Watercolour class

There was no painting for me this week just sketching. I’m starting work on a new project, a painting of the ceiling in Gibraltar’s Sacred Heart Church. It’s going to be challenging but nothing ventured…

A wartime love story

I don’t know if you saw my post on Friday about Remembrance, but it featured a few pictures from the Gibraltar National Archives’ World War I Exhibition. One of the stories featured was of a Gibraltarian soldier who ended up marrying his nurse after the war after being injured in battle. It was so lovely to see a happy ending to a wartime story.

November sunshine

We’ve had a few days of glorious sunshine lately. This was the view of Ocean Village yesterday. It makes you forget we’re into November!

That’s all for this week. Once again, I’m linking with Natalie from Threads and Bobbins for this weekly blog series.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week.

  1. Oh, that pink lining!! 56 pieces, eh? Must be your biggest challenge to date. Gosh, if your grid sketch is anything to go by, the finished painting promises great things. I’ve been watching all the remembrance documentaries I can lay my hands on this week and there have been some that have moved me to tears – that doesn’t happen very often, believe me!

    1. It definitely is my biggest challenge Sheila, I have a feeling it’s going to be a long-term project. I think I may have bitten off a bit much with the jacket and that church ceiling painting at the same time!! Yes the documentaries have been very powerful. The bravery of those who fought and those who were left behind is just beyond comprehension. It’s when you hear the personal stories that it goes from being a chapter in a history book to actual real life. I just hope beyond hope that those in power at the moment pay heed to what’s gone before.
