Yuk slugs......or are they?

Ok so we all hate them.
In the garden

Yeh we hate the little pests.

Or do we?
How cute are these little fellas.
I'm hooked, they are multiplying fast.
And the best part.
They don't eat greens!

I am in love!
If you want to join the slug fest you can get the pattern here.
Happy Thursday


  1. I am SO GLAD you had such cute crochet pictures - I almost clicked away in fright when I saw the real thing :-))

  2. I know gross aren't they, those ones in the cat food dish were vile, we couldn't find how they got in, we think maybe from under the floorboards!

  3. I do love your crochet slugs, but I think the ones in the cat food bowl are Leopard Slugs, get quite large, but eat other slugs - carnivorous! Which is why they would go for the cat food. I've been getting them in my kitchen this year, too. Don't know how they get in.

  4. Oh Anne how horrible! These little fellas only appeared whilst we were decorating, I'm afraid I did resort to chemical warfare under the floorboards to get rid of them. We think they were squeezing their slimy little bods through a gap in the bricks arghhhhhhh!!!!! Glad to say haven't seen any since we finished the kitchen, phwew.

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…
