Exhilaration!

After thfrustration of yesterday morning we thought it would be a good idea to head out for.

A BIT OF FRESH AIR

See that tiny figure in the distance that's Lovely Man, wave dodging.
I ran too and NO we didn't get caught!


What a mix, blue skies and huge waves.


Lots of salty air sticking to our faces, and cameras.
Yikes!


Don't know who he was but he knew how to have fun!


In fact, everyone was having fun. 
The faces of the people soaked to the skin with freezing seawater, battling against the gale were without exception pure joy and exhilaration!
Boy it made you feel alive! 


We battled our way rather soggily by now to Old Portsmouth up onto the Round Tower.
Which is THE only place to watch the comings and goings of the harbour. 
Along with some people with rather huge cameras(show offs) we watched the Navy ship The Diamond come into harbour.


By now the wind had turned my hair into a Medusa like tangle so we took refuge at Mum and Dads for a reviving cuppa and cake.
Before wending( I love that word) our weary way home
Oh it was a lovely hilarious afternoon. 

Love 
♥Sue♥

P.S. I've finished my frustration bag now, and d'you know what it turned out just grand!

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♥
