Sunday Sevens 27th January 2017

Joining in again this week with Sunday Sevens – the brainchild of Nathalie at Thread and Bobbins.

Last Sunday we took Hicks for a walk to Okehampton Station so that we could sneak in a naughty breakfast…


While we were there we watched a man picking up litter on the railway line. This may look dangerous, but there won’t be a train through until August.


Despite my passion for British wool, I found a bargain bin of Patons extra fine merino and couldn’t resit a few balls of this beautiful blue colour…


Otherwise it’s been a rather busy ordinary week, apart from Friday when it was cake craft afternoon at my lovely friend’s house…



No dog in a puddle pic this week, because it’s been so dry and beautifully sunny…


Although Hick’s younger friends managed to find plenty of mud to muddy up in.


Hope you’ve had a great week!

    1. No sure. It’s a current colour and I think I might mix it with some of the others they do. I keep seeing red and blue entrelac, but I have no idea what garment and red isn’t really my colour!


  1. Freezing-but-sunny days of earlier in the week have given way to milder, wet weather here. If that is the same further south west, then I think Hicks will soon be spoilt for choice when it come to muddy puddles! It’s our monthly craft evening this week, but hubby is away so I won’t be able to go. Feeling peeved.

    1. It didn’t rain until yesterday evening, but today has been ridiculously rainy. It’s so much milder this evening I’ve been wandering around the garden claiming it feels tropical – although that may be a wee exaggeration. Sorry to hear you’re going to miss your craft evening.

  2. My god, that cake! Sometimes I wish I hadn’t given up on sugar! I must be getting some form of elderly dyslexia – I read ‘god in a piddle puc’ and wondered what on earth I’d missed out on 😀 It’s early morning and first coffee is only two sips in ……

    1. The train months away was one of those moments. For a second, I thought ‘that’s a rather dangerous place to be picking up litter so casually’ and then I remembered there are no trains after the Polar Express until the summer 🙂

  3. What an awesome week, and such lovely weather, perfect for walks indeed. Mr. H is looking good. Hugs to him from us here.
    We have been having a good amount of rain and are very happy, muddy footprints in the house and all.
    I adore trains, and this photo of yours was just so perfect. Train trips are so much nicer and relaxing.
    Enjoy the week and have fun crafting. 🙂

    1. I love trains too – always feel so much more of an adventure than any other form of transport. Muddy footprints here now since yesterday 🙂 Mr Hicks says thanks for the hugs and sends you both snuggles. Have a great week! xx
