Sunday Sevens is a series in which we post some pictures from our week and show a little bit of what we’ve been up to. See Natalie from Threads and Bobbins for more info.
A bit late to the party after a fun weekend in Portland.
Preparations for my mother’s new carpet continue. I brought her some boxes this week so that she could start packing some things up. I’m also hoping she might donate a few things, as her three-bedroom house is jam-packed full of stuff.
So far, she’s donated this jar, a throw, and an unused set of sheets.
Three down, ten million to go.
More thinking about sewing than actual sewing this week, but I did do some darning on my honey’s jeans; they were in excellent condition except for tears at the inner corners of both back pockets.
Saving usable clothing from the landfill feels like a big ol’ win.
And I got the super-sized snaps onto my fleece jacket! For those following along at home, that’s two finishes toward my goal of ten by the end of the year.
Took a walk with my mother to the fishing pond at the far end of Columbia Park.
We spent the weekend in Portland; on Saturday, my partner went off on a bike ride with his buddies, and I went to the Oregon Zoo.
Here’s an eagle for ya (another one is behind the trunk of the tree).
Isn’t this a beautiful place?
And a cheetah:
And (slightly less majestic) Naked Mole Rats sleeping in a heap.
And, just for fun, a couple of bonus pictures of the fall colors from the drive back home on Sunday.
This is at the Starbuck’s in Hood River, OR.
And a tree farm near the Oregon-Washington border:
Have a great week, everybody.
