It's all festive here!

Hi everyone!
Been busy, feeling a little frazzled, I know.
Don't worry not long now, you'll be able to put your feet up in your lovely new slippers.
Watch cheesy Christmas TV whilst sipping a sweet sickly strangely coloured concoction that you wouldn't touch the rest of the year, but ok since it's Christmas!
here we have been getting on with things and 
finally I've found the time to put up our decorations. 

I'm loving them very much this year

How do you like these little chaps?

And the 'ice house'

And if you squizz really hard you might be able to make out
 my very shabby chic vintage robin!
Promise I'll get some better shots of him.

In the hall the pictures have gone on holiday and Christmas has moved into the frames!
The pictures are cards we have received this year and some groovy wrapping paper from B&Q!

Arty shot taken in the mirror.

The lounge is a riot of rainbow colour in honour of my latest creation

And my slight addiction to these wonderful crochet baubles!

Finally I know it's very late but 
It's very delicious too!
So not much left to do really and to be honest 
I just want to spend the next few days enjoying myself.
So the agenda is.
Do essential jobs
Have fun
Enjoy being at home with my family
if we haven't got it now
we probably won't miss it!
If I don't get back before the great day
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas filled with love and laughter.


  1. The house looks lovely - so impressed that you actually change the pictures for Christmas :0 Have a lovely time with your family. Claire 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…
