Two Ta-dahs!

Well here we are then.
Berry Bright Cushion!

This was another one, you know

turned out. 
Love, love, love the colours

Added some cute little flowers to make it more girlie.
And raided the button box for some perfectly pretty buttons.

It's a cute size too. 
A dinky 12 inches square.
So do you sense my dilemma?
Yes you've guessed should I just pop out to the yarn shop and buy just a little bit more...........
Just a tiny few balls

Enough to make 

Should I?

In the meantime,
Just what every little lady needs for all her essentials
you know

You understand
If I was a little girl I would so want one of these.

It's been languishing in my project basket for ages, 
waiting patiently for me to finish it.
Just needed to find the perfect lining.

D'you like it? D'you recognise it?

I haven't got much left, ideal for little projects like this don't you think.
And that's why you should
throw old fabrics and yarns away.

Hope you are enjoying the glorious weather!



  1. Hi Sue, the pillow is darling and YES, it would look great with a complimentary blanket :-)

    I love the pastel colors of your bag. It's extra special with the Laura Ashely fabric. Nicely done! Have a great week, xjosie

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…
