Sweet Pea Blanket

My latest creation
Sweet Pea Blanket
Sweet Pea Blanket by Sue Webb ♥

It's a giant granny square, loved making it sooo relaxing just round and round and round 46 times! 
I must confess I've still got some ends to sew in, but that's boring and I'm already onto the next thing.
Want a little peek?


What's it going to be.


Wait and see!
Are you the same, flitting from one project to another. I find a new idea evolves from the project I'm working on, one thing leads to another and I get a backlog of ideas! I've started writing them down and keeping colour ideas tucked safely away in an attempt to free my mind for the thing I'm working on!
Oh the torture. 
Are you suffering too?
I wonder who has the most projects on the go at once, let me know!

  1. Hi Sue, love Sweet Pea! Those are my kinda colors. And yes, I see we both have a sort of 'crafting ADHD'. I usually have various yarn projects whirling around in my head so I have a little notebook in which I write them all so as not to make myself crazy! I have 3 active projects right now and probably half dozen unfinished ones that I'm just not feeling right now. Oh yes, the torture :-)

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…
