From Blah To Yuk And No Ta Dah

I wanted to show you my gorgeous Spring Flower Bag.
I just couldn't get it done.
Everything went in slow motion, no energy. Just felt well,
Should have taken a leaf out of Howards book.

Now there's a cat who knows how to relax.
He knows exactly how to look after himself!

So no Ta Dah yet,
but soon
very soon!
Have a great Monday
I am off to drag myself to work now.


  1. I love your bike - and your crochet flowers - what a beautiful blog, love Kate from greedy for colour xxooxx.

  2. Oh, yes. Have these feelings on almost on a daily basis.

    Here's to catnaps!...

  3. I like your cat and his crocheted cushion cover.

  4. Awww your cat looks just like the cat I had thirty years ago! His name was Paul. So handsome! Thanks for the memory :)

    1. Oh thank you! It's funny how you never forget a special pet they stay in our hearts forever don't they.

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…
