Make your own sun!

Don't panic, I haven't floated away just been busy, that's all.
How time flies, nearly a whole week since I last popped by.
I been immersing myself in these gorgeous colours
..........aren't they lovely, can't be sad looking at them can you.
So a little Ta Dah!
A double sided rainbow cushion, an order for a lovely customer.

Rainbow happiness on both sides,
with lovely bobbles as buttons.
Now I'm busy with the matching ripple blanket soon I'm going to be buried under a colour explosion, won't need to look out of the window at all!
Although it's not all bad out there, look how lush my garden looks,
everything is growing so well.

And I think I know where the sun is...........
.....................look hiding in my pond, what an amazing colour this lily is,
 look at the yellow, beautiful isn't it, such an uplifting colour.

I think that's the best thing to do folks,
 make your own sunshine however you can, surround yourself with brightness and light.
How are you keeping your spirits up in all this greyness?
Do your crafting efforts help to lift your mood on these miserable days?
Lets all cross our fingers and hope that soon the sun will come out.
Lots of love.
Your wellie wearing friend

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…
