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.

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…

Sunday

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♥


Five Photo Friday

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♥
