Jubilee

Just crawled home from work and am sitting here in silence...........bliss. 

Jubilee fever with 5 year olds is noisy and crazy, we had the fancy dress(1960's for our class), singing, cucumber sandwiches, scones, singing, bunting making, singing flag waving, singing you get the picture! I'm looking forward to a week of rest and quiet crafting in the garden.

But before that another day of dancing beckons, this time Chippenham Folk Festival, tomorrow. It's going to be an early start. so in case you're wondering what I'm actually doing here's a taster.........you'll notice we go for fun, not perfection! I give you ..............
Chequered Flag


Here's one for the ladies

Hope you all have a wonderful Jubilee holiday and for us on half term YAY!
Love

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…
