The Weekend

I love the weekends don't you, love the relaxed pace and being able to just mooch.
What do you do when you mooch?
Friday afternoon we mooched over the road to 
just 5 minutes from our door.

Don't you just love the colour of that sky!

Then on Saturday afternoon we mooched on our bikes up the road to the lovely 
We had a lovely time in the 

The clouds were fabulous.

How hard is it to capture birds. 

This cunning heron spotted us and refused to give us a good shot!

What we didn't manage to capture on film was the herd of cows who came to see us.
One was particularly friendly and spent ages firstly licking it's nostrils then licking my hand!
Yeh,with plenty of dribble LOL!
There was some hooky fun too, a new garland, full of summer colours, but no photos yet.
And some serious digging down the old allotment, I'll have to remember to take my camera next time so I can show you the huge amount of strawberries we have!
So today back to work and back to the rain.
Oh Well!
Catch up soon

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…
