Back from the wilderness!

I'm back did you miss me?
OMG I've had nearly THREE days with
We rely on it so much don't we and without it we are SO lost.
We checked the server and got this very 'helpful message'
'We have had a few technical problems in you postcode area, to reset your internet turn off your modem for 5 minutes, then switch it back on this should restore your service. Thank you for calling goodbye'
We did this, followed the instructions to the letter.......nothing, errr scuse me what do you do if it doesn't work, yeh that's right doesn't BLOODY WORK!!!!!
Oh makes me so mad. Anyway turned my hand to a bit of calming crochet and left the tech stuff to the teenagers of the house.
How cute is this little rabbit

The pattern comes from here.
I've been meaning to have a go at a little toy for a while, so easy to make too.
It's a gift for the teacher I work with who's leaving this week to have her baby.

I think she'll like it and as she knows what the baby is I went with the blue!
There have been some brilliant names suggestions from the children.
Most popular so far is Brian, Derek and Bruce Wayne!

So anyway as you can gather the technical wizardry of Oliver and Jacob has restored my sanity and internet,
 all is back to normal, calmness is returned and we can look up all those things we wanted to look up NOW over the last few days. Now what was it again?
What would we do if internet disappeared, how would we manage, what would we do instead?
Hope you are all having a great week.


  1. Is so cute the teacher and her baby would love that. I love making toys

  2. Thanks Victoria I'm starting to love making toys too, mainly because they are so quick and such a great way to stash bust!

  3. I understand your love-hate relationship with the internet!
    Very cute bunny!

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…
