Sunday Sevens 2019 #25

Welcome to my Sunday Sevens – a post where I share seven (or so) photos of my week away from the blog. A little late this week, because I did a Scrap Happy post Yesterday and didn’t have time to write a second post.

There was a huge sense of Deja Vu last week…

More ivy clearing…


More damson picking…


More Jam making…


But it wasn’t all a repeat of the week before….

I had a big order for kits – so a fair bit of work to do…


In between I managed to escape for lunch at Okehampton Station…


And, of course, there were lots of walks with Harry…


Saturday this week was also the anniversary of Mr Hick’s passing, so we lit a candle for him…


Until next time,

Bekki x

  1. Has it been a year already? It was in my mind when we were chatting about our boys impulse control or lack of it on my post – but then I didn’t ask…… A year already! I’m glad you lit a candle for him ❤ He was a special fellow! I never saw a dog as happy in mud as he 🙂

    1. Thank you. I’ve never met anyone so good at embracing life – and at batting on through through the the rubbish life can through you. He really was amazing. Now i hope you’re sitting down, but it was two years ago last Saturday he stepped on without me xx

      1. Aw! Thank. So happy its not just our hearts he’s still in. You’re absolutely right, we were dogless for 16 months and have already had Harry for 8. I can hardly belive we’ve had him that long – I must be in that time warp too xx

  2. Echoing what the others have said. I miss the pictures of Mr Hicks in a muddy puddle. He had a big fan base in Blogland.

    Some weeks are just like last week, and if last week was nice, then that’s a good thing.

    Congrats on the order.

    1. Thank you. I miss taking them. I love Harry dearly but he just doesn’t know how to play to the camera. He does howrber know how to play to an audience! Maybe i need to seitch to videos.
      Yes, not a bad week to repeat at all.
      Thank you.


  3. It looks like you had some sunshine to enjoy picking damsons and remembering doggy walks. At first I thought you had dyed the yarn with the damsons – then I read your post properly! Nice little order. I love thinking about what everyone might be starting with new yarn purchases (oops, me included, must be something about the season changing that makes me yearn for another new project).

    1. Forget season changing, I constantly find new projects to yearn for.
      I think the damsons might make rubbish dye as they’ve already used all the colour on the fruit – that’s the way it usually serms to work with natural dyes – it’s the more boring coloured plants that give the more vibrant colours, but not always.


      1. Ha ha – me too, projects always yearned for – I search out yarn or fabric wherever I go and have a lovely ‘collection’ (aka projects for the future!). I just read elsewhere about using natural fruit, veg and herbs to dye fabric – and was surprised what worked, sometimes in ways you wouldn’t expect. Purple cabbage looked interesting to use and so did rosemary. The cabbage gave a wonderful deep purple but the rosemary was yellow – I expected a weak green instead. Not that rosemary is ‘boring’, I’d only ever thought of it for cooking.

  4. How the time went by, my goodness. A year already. So nice to remember all the fun times with Mr. H
    Lovely week, happy to see more kits going out. 🙂
    And of course, lunch looked amazing.
    Enjoy the new week.
