The one with Willy Wonka

Boy what a hectic weekend, starting Thursday with 
World Book Day.
The advantage of working in a school is that you get the chance to dress up!
This year 
Willy Wonka !
A few little props a quick raid of the wardrobe

Hey presto!

The children loved it!
Then it was a quick change and off to Plymouth for my stepson's Passing Out Parade



Long drive home
 to some 
hooking in the sunshine

It's a beautiful scarf which I'm making for myself, quickly before the weather changes!
Speaking of weather, we spent yesterday afternoon strolling along Witterings beach.
Strangely although we live nearby
we've never been there!
Now it's our new favourite place
Hope these pictures make you feel as chilled as we did.

A perfect end to the weekend
Home to a nice hot cup of cocoa and an early night.

Hoping to Ta Dah my scarf later in the week.
Hope your weekend was

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…
