Meet the cats

Well you've met the children so it's only fair you should meet the 
Apologies if you're not a cat lover. 

You may find the gushing a bit much.

So here we go.
This is Howard he's the baby of the bunch, special skills involve him throwing himself at our feet and dragging himself along like a slug.

Then there's Treacle our lady cat.
Actually she's the one who sees off any imposters into the garden.
And boy can she talk, meow meow meow!

Finally we have Ghetto, he's Treacle's brother, handsome isn't he. 
A more gentle cat you couldn't wish to meet.
He had a nasty accident a few years ago and has a damaged pelvis, 
he's not got much strength in his back legs. 
Favourite thing is stretching out on the sofa watching TV, 
especially nature programmes.

Of course we love them all and for me having them around makes our home feel, 
more homely.
Who do you share your home with?


  1. I love cats and these three look gorgeous. We have one cat called Milly, she is a tabby and she likes to be cuddled all the time, she especially likes to help with my painting by sitting on top of my work!! Thanks for all your comments you leave on my Flickr page it's really nice to get them.

  2. The cats are gorgeous and I love their names! We have Lottie (spaniel) Ash (bunny) and Mimzi (guinea-pig) Pippa the other guinea-pig sadly died last night :(

  3. So sorry to hear about Pippa, it's always so devastating losing a pet however small. We just take them into our hearts and families don't we, and when they go it hurts.
    Your pets names are cool too, I love what people call their animals!

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…
