Party

Sixteen round the table on Saturday night, all family!
Happy Birthday indeed.
So the preparations went on most of the day, 
It's a long time since I've spent a day pottering in my kitchen, it was lovely!
Now I did intend to photograph things as I went along, but I kept forgetting!
Anyway here are some of the goodies.

 Ciabatta bread.

Lemon curd, this was the filling for a delicious lemon sponge.

Avocado salsa was delicious with the chilli

And chocolate cheesecake (squizz your eyes up and it looks a bit better!)
All very favourably received, well you can tell by the scraping of plates and lack of leftovers!
No birthday photos as they were taken by other people, but trust me, we had a blast and my Lovely Man really enjoyed his evening! (even though he said he didn't want a fuss)
 It's so wonderful to spend time with the people you love, 
we feel really lucky and blessed!
So moving onto Sunday,
Beautiful flowers.

Hugs and kisses, giggly phone call from Heather.
Then today a belated Mothers day pressie from Jacob
This is what I found when I got home from work.

Cup of tea, lovely.
Pancake batter, lovely.
Raspberry and cherry sauce, delicious!
How special.
I love my children, they always find unique and wonderful ways to tell me they love me!
Hope you feel loved and special too!

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♥
