Busy!

It's a busy weekend here in beautiful Baffins.
We have a gathering of friends and family tomorrow night for ceremonial tasting of our homemade cider!
It was a real team effort as you can see, and this year.
IT'S DELICIOUS



So we decided to celebrate all things homemade and crafty and invited people to
Show and Tell!
We have jams, baking, photos, yarny stuff well allsorts really.


And the winners will go away with  one of these gorgeous rosettes!


I'll let you know how it goes, 
I'm in hot competition with my brother (very competitive) in the photo category, whilst Lovely Man and Jacob are fighting it out in the baking (I fear sabotage!)
Oh yes and to keep things going with a swing they'll be a whole heap of musicians playing some lively tunes.
( it's ok I've warned the neighbours)
It's going to be mad and fun!
Love

  1. Hi Sue! I never knew that cider making was right NOW! I just assumed it would be in the Autumn. You are certainly in for a wonderful creative fun time. Looking forward to the "next installment"
    Enjoy!

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♥


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♥
