Sailing on!

Ahoy there shipmates!
Sorry had to do that, you see I have a little fleet now!

This one's caught the catch of the day.

And this one's all pastel and pretty

Do you like the little bunting decoration?

I haven't decided what to put on this one.

And finally a little experimental tugboat.
What do you think?
I'm going to put more decorations on it.
I'm not sure if it's a keeper.

Anyway I'm back on dry land tonight, playing with these.

Lovely aren't they, using up my stash 
(oh dear I'm chuckling to myself cos I just bought a ball of wool to finish this project)
Which makes that statement officially a lie. 
We always kid ourselves with the stash thing don't we, after all if we used up our stashes we'd have no yarn to work with now would we. Yeh we didn't think of that did we!
So do you like these tiny squares?
Well quite tiny, about an inch square, very relaxing to make.

Not as tiny as these made by Jules  at little woollie with the marvellous eyesight. So tiny! 
And not as colourful as these which are just gorgeous made by Angie over at le monde de sucrette
Both have the most lovely blogs full of colour and gorgeousness go take a look!
I'm off to make some more!
See you soon

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…
