Spinning around!

I'm having a rest from holiday blimin many!
And blogger has refused to let me post for some reason( arghhh).
I wanted to write an informative post about my Chelsea bun making session, but NO.
So here are the (very) edited highlights.
As you can see I only just had time to snap them as the locusts descended LOL!
I've been much inspired by this and this.

So there you go, I'll be making these again using  Delia's brilliant recipe.

Right onto other matters.
I've been spinning, yes you heard right,
You may remember back in April my lovely friend Jo brought her wheel and I had a little dabble.
Not good I was rubbish!
So yesterday I spent the day with Jo and she patiently showed me the technique, again and again
But then suddenly it all clicked and I was off fantastic fun.
D'you want to see what I produced?

Top skein, my first spinnings, gorgeous isn't it LOL.
It's very, very lumpy but it is spun.
Last night I produced the bottom skein, how did you do that Sue did you refuse to go home?
I hear yo ask.


Jo has lent me her wheel, doesn't it look lovely sat in my lounge.
I had the most fun in ages spinning away last night and can't wait to have another go today.
I'm going for the string vest look........for my Lovely Man!
One day maybe I'll make something like thisthis and this!
Well a girl can dream can't she.

Right I'm off to spin and spin but also to get outside in the glorious sunshine, what a beautiful day.
Last weekend of the holiday.
Better make the most of it.
Back soon 
Lots of love


  1. A photograph of your buns appeared in my Blog Bar and I nearly tripped over myself getting here so fast! They look great but alas not very Weight Watchery! Then to my great delight it turned into a 'Spinning' post! You are 'Spinning'. Doesn't that wheel look right at home there! I know you are going to be spinning some fantastic yarns. xxx

  2. Thanks Lucy, I'm hooked already, there's no food, the washing needs doing and the hoover's covered with dust...........I'M Busy..........spin spin, spin!

  3. I have the same delia book of cakes and it is excellent...

    Glad you have been having bees even though the butterflies have been low in numbers - it's been the same here until the old pear attracted them....

    Blogger won't let me start a new paragraph....sometimes you just have to go with it.......

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

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♥
