Adding to my stash. I couldn't help it!

I cycled 40 minutes today, 
through plagues of tiny flies and blasts of lorry air (you know as they zoom past!)
Why, why, why!
For this

Do  you like it?
It's my new 
'Summer Skies'
It's lined with some pretty blue spotty fabric (no photo too dud)

So the reason to be out on my bike was to acquire some suitable ribbon to line the strap.
Off to Hobbycraft then, hence the long ride, actually rather nice and way better than using the car.

So here's the ribbon.
Lovely isn't it.
Alright it's not ribbon, no not ribbon at all.
I got seduced by some reduced Amy Butler organic dk.

Stunning isn't it. 
Haven't got a clue what I shall make with it, I'm just looking at it and feeling
The hunt for a suitable ribbon will continue of course.........
What made you happy today?


  1. lol, you had me looking for ribbon, like trying to play 'Where's Wally'! I get it now, and love your 'Ribbon'. If you cycle for forty minutes you are allowed to treat yourself right?

  2. I like your thinking. The longer I cycle the bigger the reward! LOL.

  3. Hello Sue, please can you mail us your address so we can send you your bag. Groetjes, heleen en corry

  4. Oh you made me laugh! How often do we find bargains instead of what was needed! The bag is gorgeous.

  5. Lovely bag, and lovely new yarn too. Don't like the sound of the lorries though, I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to cycling in traffic!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

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♥
