Around the house

Hope you enjoyed a lovely busy crafty weekend, 
I found myself last night sat on my sofa with two crochet projects on my lap!
One just finishing except, ran out of yarn. 
So I just started another one.
 It's true people I am an addict, I can't sit down without a hook in my hand!
Anyway onto other things.
This pretty tin heart hangs in my hallway, a gift from my lovely daughter.
D'you see the hearts behind?
Homemade my friends, cut by my own fair hand from an old map I bought from E-bay.
A gift for my Lovely Man.
The hearts are special places we've been together.

Downstairs in the kitchen. The noticeboard.
 Everyone needs a noticeboard
Is that another old map Susan I hear you ask,
well yes it is,
Got a little carried away on E-Bay
But I love this
my Lovely Man made the frame.
 In went the map and we just write on the glass with a whiteboard pen!

And my final piece of genius today.
Have you one of those digital photo frames kicking around at home.
Ugly aren't they.
Not mine!
Lovely man made a frame to cover the frame!!!
That wooden frame just pulls off so you can change the card etc.
I've got lots more pictures to put up, disguising the wire even more.
I love the effect.
One minute it's one picture the next it's changed!

All of this is only possible with the genius of my
 Lovely Man.
He takes my hairbrained ideas and makes them real.
What a lucky lady I am!
Hope you feel lucky

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Five Photo Friday

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.

That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥
