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!

Things are looking up!

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.
