All done!

Just found this post in my drafts, what a muppet! Guess it was a busier week than I realised

Phew, all done now!
This was the scene yesterday morning.

Looks big doesn't it.

Treacle was NOT pleased.
Where's my basket gone?

This room hasn't been empty, properly empty for years!
It's like moving in all over again.
Anyway, this is how I left it at 9am.
Ready for the big reveal, 


Gorgeous isn't it

Look at the wonderfulness of it!

So clean and fresh and beautiful!
with the furniture in

Altogether now

Yeah that's right
Howard's already at home on his chair.
A great refurbishment, one of our best.
So onward and upward, next project.
The bathroom.
But not just yet. 
Think I shall be sitting and drinking tea for a little while first.
At my table.
In my beautiful dining room.

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…
