A Grand Day Out

Hi folks, 
I've been so busy and not had chance to get anywhere near my computer.
Back at work this week too ( a little bit arghhh)
Last Friday we had a glorious day out at Cuckmere Valley Nature Reserve,
 which follows the river down to the sea.
Sadly it was not a great day for photographs too hazy, but it was warm and sunny and beautiful!
Come along then lets have a stroll.
Here's the view from the top of the valley, stunning meandering river.

Very happy sheep

You can tell sometimes it's pretty bleak here.

Down onto the beach and the amazing sight of the Seven Sisters Cliffs

Up onto the other side of the bay, after wading through some truly freezing water!
An iconic view and a delicious picnic.

Coastguards Cottage.
I could live here.

Oh what a great day. We photoed ourselves out, it was lovely.
A day of happy, happy memories with my lovely, lovely man.
How lucky am I.
Hope you feel lucky too

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…
