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
and
Three Blue Tits!!!
Yay
Fabulous.
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.

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.


That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! 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…

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.






I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!


Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥
