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!

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♥

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…
