Sunday Sevens – Week 42 – My 3rd Attempt








Ha! Just a little glitch in my learning curve. I thought that I had scheduled this post to publish on Sunday…..I don’t know what I did wrong. Better late than never?!

I have been enjoying following the Sunday Sevens Weekly Blog Series created by Natalie from Threads & Bobbins. I have been ‘meeting’ more and more new friends around the world.  I also have been enjoying the opportunity to open my eyes to my every day life and capture things that I normally take for granted but am looking at differently now as I have the chance to share these with all of you. This really is fun and I hope you enjoy my offerings from my week.

I have been quite busy this week. I love to share my sewing knowledge with others. I teach classes at our city’s park & recreation. I do not consider myself an expert sewist. I just love to share what I am passionate about. This week started a 5 week Summer Camp series where I am teaching 3 mornings per week and I have 2 evening classes as well. There are up to 6 kids in each camp session and 3 or 4 in my evening classes.

On top of all of that I have been working on some projects for myself. Last year, I wore out a pair of shorts that I absolutely loved. You know the pair. They fit just right. They are so comfortable. So, I took them apart (at least half of them) to make a pattern from them. I kept the other half in tack so I could have a visual of how they were suppose to go back together. I have made 3 new pair from my pattern. 2 of them I made this week.

1 –  A rayon pair.

2 – And a denim pair.

3 – The fur baby loves his little corner of my sewing room.

4 – On my way in to teach classes one morning I caught a glimpse of Carter’s Mountain from the 3rd floor of the parking garage. We have some gorgeous views in this area.

5 – Ok, so I didn’t take this photo. My daughter took it in our backyard and forwarded it to me while I was working at the fabric store on Wednesday. It was too cute not to share. The fawn is only a few weeks old.

6 – Here’s a elevator shot of the historic downtown mall. I love working downtown. Both the fabric store and the recreation center that I teach at are located here.

7 – I found a box of tiles at our local Habitat Store that I think will work perfectly in finishing my kitchen remodel. I purchased 110 of these tiles from Italy for 25 cents a piece. I am planning to get back into the many remodeling projects we have once I finish all of my Summer Camps.

That’s it for my week. The hubs and I are off to Columbia, MD this weekend for our first Track and Field event of the Summer. He told me the other day that I am just 7/10th’s 0f a meter from All American status in the shot put for my age bracket. I will be throwing discus and shot put on Sunday, my birthday. Achieving All American would be a fun way to celebrate. Wish me luck.
