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!

Five Photo Friday

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.


That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! 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…
