Flowers and Birds!


How was your weekend?
 Hmm not quite as hot and sunny as the weather men suggested was it.
To top it all I spent the weekend with a box of tissues doing battle with the 
FIRST COLD OF THE SEASON not nice.
Anyway, it's Monday now so I'm feeling well enough to resume normal activities..............
That'll be work then!
So I thought I'd share some loveliness with you. 
Not grown by me but just on our next door allotment, 
Lovely dahlias

Enjoy











How pretty they are!
Which is your favourite? 

On another subject. Photographing birds, that's tricky isn't it, but look I caught these little fellas at the end of my garden. Lovely little 
Long tailed tits so speedy, real now you see them now you don't!




Have a good week.
I'm back to my crochet later,
 it got tricky trying to hook and wrestle the tissue box!

Sunday

A beautiful day here in Portsmouth. A hint of Spring in the air and the first outdoor spinning of the year.

It felt good to be outside listening to the birds and soaking up the warm sunshine on the deck.


The cats thought so too! Ghetto having a stretch.

Lord Howard(as he is now known!) relaxing! After an hour sitting in the sunshine it was on with my walking boots and off to the sea.

First stop Milton Common, the sky full of Brent Geese chattering as they flew overhead.

The Solent was particularly sparkly today.

The Hard in Old Portsmouth looked higgledy piggledy and colourful.

Then a final treat as I wandered home, a glorious sunset. A day to lift the spirits and make me glad to be alive! Hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful weekend too. Love ♥Sue♥


Back in the zone

Hello So it's been a while but I think it's safe to say that I'm back in the zone! The spinning wheel is out and I'm loving it. Loving the calm rhythmic movement of fibre flowing through my fingers, watching the bobbins fill with gorgeous colour, enjoying the meditative process that spinning is. I've been spinning some beautiful Alpaca and silk that I dyed AGES ago. It's very soft and fluffy but spins up really well wanting to be thin and sophisticated.

I've also been admiring this beauty, I know a rainbow landed on the rug! It's Milk Fibre, it take dye amazingly well, it's incredibly fine and slippery. I tried spinning it 'neat' but it proved impossible so I'm carding it with Merino.

What do you think?


I'm really pleased, I'm a carding newbie but again it's a wonderful process which I find completely absorbing.

I'm planning on carding each rainbow colour separately I'll let you know how it goes.
So how are you all? Hopefully f…
