Sharing the Shame

I was having a little mooch through blogland yesterday when I came across a lovely post from

 it's a lovely blog full of delicious crochet and inspirational ideas, but this post was about.


 I thought I'd share the shame.

Not pretty is it


I'm lucky enough to have a space to work in but as you can see it's far from perfect.
There was a chest of drawers in that space 
but number two son took it for his flat (to be fair it was his).
So all my stuff is piled up in tubs and baskets, that's not all my stuff, those plastic drawers are full of towels.

Ok the rest is mine.
But d'you know what. I don't care I love my little room.

she's fessed up to not having a 'perfect' home too.

Isn't that the point though 


Somewhere to feel comfortable and safe and relaxed,
somewhere we feel able to create and craft, which by it's very nature is a messy process!
So lets give a big sigh of relief and enjoy the shame.
Real people live like this!

Have a good day



  1. ah, truth!... I'm sure I get less done because I like my space too organised {might be because of the three little ones too!}... but my mum, who is in the middle of moving house {a very long process} has her craft stuff piled up everywhere. I can't make heads or tails of it, but she is happy, and turns out the most beautiful quilts on a regular basis. Whatever works, I say. x

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…
