Foray into Felt!

 Happy Weekend to you!
I've spent the day tidying up my craft room and poodling around, lovely.
Anyway  thought I'd share with you something that's making me inexplicably happy.
Ta dah!
A very cute little felted bowl!

I'm calling it my pebble bowl. I love it such a happy little thing!

I'd seen it and I'd read about it and I was curious to discover
 just how easy it was and how you did it.
Oh boy, it's easy as pie. 
Just get some scrumptious yarn, get hooking and make............

....................then the tricky bit, find something that needs a wash. Ha ha ha, I know we've always got washing haven't we. Well actually on this occasion I had nothing, not a sock, not a thing!
Jacob was ordered to provide the jeans off his extremely skinny legs 
purely for the purpose of shrinking my bowl!
Sorry, not friendly to the earth but I did put it on a mini wash and I promise I won't do it again, but I couldn't wait, I couldn't!

Half an hour later there it was.
D'you know what, it's all down to the wonderful world of the tinternet.
It's down to all of you clever creatives out there.

The ideas and inspirations bouncing around in cyberspace are truly remarkable. I find myself being thrown into creativity by a photo or picture or blog. 
Anything, ANYTHING is possible!
It's an amazing place to be.
I wonder.
Do you feel the same?
Let me know.


  1. Sometimes I don;t look on the internet in case I see something more that i want to do! Love the bowl

  2. Cool, I have never got round to trying felting yet. (Another thing on the list)

    Thanks for commenting on my tutorial and I'm glad it made sense. I do worry so!

    Good luck with your cushion back!

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…
