Christmas Mayhem

Southsea Sunset by Sue Webb ♥

Oh my what a week! 
It's been full of rain 
no sunshine 
mad children(school not mine) 
oh and 
birthday preparations again! 
Too busy.

While I'm writing this I'm girding my loins to face a morning of glitter, glue and general mayhem.
 We are having a decorating day at school, I feel we may be being buried under a sea of Christmas decorations!
All accompanied by some gorgeous (I'm being ironic there) carol singing.
I feel a headache coming already LOL!
I will attempt to get some pictures of the craziness that's if I'm not stuck to the table!

Actually it will be great, d'you know why?
Because we won't be doing and 
I hate maths
That thought has cheered me up
 I'm off to dig out Christmassy stuff  and get my santa hat!
Hope your Friday is full of fun!

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…
