A Secret Life!

Hellooooo!

Hope you are all enjoying this glorious weather, 
it certainly makes you feel better doesn't it.
We've been staying up waay to late enjoying the outdoor life and a little visit to the pub!
Looking at the local landmarks,
pretty ain't it.


Anyhow.
Busy weekend my friends we are just preparing ourselves for a spot of outdoor performing.
Oh yes folks, I have a secret life of dancing and folk festivals!
Today we are off to the lovely city of Winchester for their annual festival.
lots of morris men and cloggers and us dancing in the boiling sun!
If you're interested we dance with a group called Chequered Flag and we dance mainly Appalacian steps which are very percussive, great fun.
You can find a couple of us videos on youtube ( haven't time to put one on here)
Have a great weekend
Am taking my camera so might get some piccies to show you, it's a glamorous life let me tell you!
Must go kit to iron!
bye
Love
♥Sue♥

  2. You might, then, be interested in my aunt and Uncle's folk band called Chase Mist. They have some videos on YouTube. See what you think.

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♥
