Long Week

It's been a long week, a very long week!
I've started a new working pattern which means I have NO FREE AFTERNOONS!
This is bad.
No time to whizz around on my bike getting jobs done. 
No, now I have to squeeze it into the evenings and weekends.
I don't like it!
However enough of the moaning Susan.
I have found time to snap some of the things that have happened this week.
We did have a delightful stroll around the common this week and met our feathered friends.
Here's our friend rushing over to greet us!!!!!

Up close and personal.
 Bit too up close really, I must confess we did have a little bit of food to entice him.

Unfortunately not everyone got a look in, boy was he cross with that swan, don't you think his face is hilarious!
Let me tell you there was a lot of quacking and that crazy water running that ducks do!

Made a new and very long garland

Love these flowers and that cotton yarn.

Finally the light was good enough to snap this flower hanging too

D'you like it, I love it, especially the vintage buttons. 
Although I do have trouble parting company with them, each one is so special.

The beads are old too.
 Both are snuggled in my Folksy shop waiting to be re-homed.

And as I was feeling sad about having to work(grumble,grumble) my Mum gave me a bunch of cheery flowers. Lovely MUM!

Also indulged in a bit of yarn therapy,
wait and see.

And today has been a garden day.

Hope you are finding the time to do the things you love with the folk you love.
Off to cook some cakes now!

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…
