I've been inventing!


Half term holidays and nothing too drastic planned has given me lots of time to play.
And look what I created!
After my slug adventure I wanted to see if I could make a figure, in one piece.
Then in my butterfly mind way I thought, I wonder if I could make a fish tail, turns out if you combine those two things you get yourself a 
MERMAID!!!!!

I got completely carried away of course.
She has chain stitched scales on her tail,
and 
the hair!
Can't stop laughing at her hair.

It just kept growing
and
growing!

Of course she had to have a name so I called her
Meri
Which apparently means 'the sea' in Finnish.
I love her very much and have spent much time leaping about and cackling with glee much to my families despair!
But I don't care, cos I've made a mermaid!


The only down side to all this mermaid invention is,
NO PATTERN!
not one note or scribbling did I make, 
(mainly cos I thought it wouldn't work, have more faith Susan) 
So now I shall have to attempt a remake with full instructions.
don't hold your breath it may be some time LOL!
Hope you've had a fun and productive week.

I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.


Meet
 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer


Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

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♥

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♥
