The Birds!

Did you join in with the RSPB birdwatch?
As you can see we did!
Well actually
Howard gave up and went back to his cushion!

So I set myself up at the kitchen window, radio on, 
crochet on the go and bird print out.
9am full of excitment.

10am one crochet tin cover a la Lucy, very productive.

You can't wait to find out how many birds I saw can you?

Here we go

One Magpie
Three Blue Tits!!!
Where was the robin and wren and great tit and pigeon and any other bird I see regularly.
Were they in your garden?
What did you see?
Be back later in the week am busy stocking my little Folksy shop.


  1. Beautiful crochet. The colours are lovely. It's amazing what you can re-cycle when you think outside the circle! I recently covered a small baked bean tin and made it into a pin cushion.

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…
