I'm back!

And yes, 
I did need my waterproofs!
So where did we end up, 
well it was very exciting travelling without knowing your destination.
We ended up here in the lovely village of 
A place of little thatched cottages.
So pretty.
Let me tell you it was a perfect birthday surprise.
Would you like to see what we got up to.

Saturday morning the view from our bedroom,
 a glimpse of sunshine. 
Quick boots on lets get going.

Quick stroll downhill to Seatown

Fabulous clouds

Lets hike to the top of Golden cap, off we go, bit muddy!

Lovely scenery

We made a new friend, he's so cute, I love his curly coat.

It's very, very high.
This is looking east.

And west

That's us!

Right then down the other side, 
come on Sue keep up.

Tony showing me the way!?!

Loads of toadstools

We think these are called Scarlet Hood

And these might be Verdigris toadstool 

So onward and downward, very gingerly in places let me tell you, 
some of those landslides are very recent, the path was VERY close to the edge!

Down to Charmouth, not a dinosaur in sight, no fish and chips either!
cafe closed in the winter.
Note to self ,take sarnies!
Quick change of plan then.
Bus ride back to Chideock then on to Lyme Regis by car.
 Lovely little town some fantastic buildings

Interesting aren't they and all three of these were on the promenade!

Very dramatic sunset, 
a glimpse of things to come!

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.

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…
