It's been a good Wednesday

We don't do it too early,
what with all those birthdays.
But secret Santa waits for no man and here is my gift.
My recipient is a wonderful lady who always thinks of others before herself.
I was thrilled to pick her out, and knowing her quite well I knew exactly what she would love.

Just a simple
jolly scarf.

Needed a nice fringy thing on the ends.

Lovely Japanese flower pattern. After much searching
 I found this one

I used a lovely soft 4ply yarn
Patons Fairytale dreamtime pure wool.

In soft sweetie pink colours.
Let me tell you.
She was thrilled with her secret Santa gift
and she guessed it was from me. LOL!
There is nothing more lovely than making something for a person you care about and knowing you've given them a little bit of love and a little bit of you.
What a lovely day.

Today was also great because,
I sold a cushion!
On Folksy
I sold my first cushion!
Very exciting, 
well I'm excited anyway.

Hope your Wednesday was great.

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…
