End of the week.............hooray!

 First week back at work and boy have we been busy and that's before the children start!
Quite a stressful day today, it's hard to please some people if you know what I mean!!!
So I took myself off for a lovely walk along the seafront.
Ahhh the perfect way to relax.
How's your week been?

The downside of working of course is the lack of crafting time, but I have a few projects on the go at the moment.
Little bird on a driftwood branch.
Cute or naff? 
What do you think?

Retro colours bag, just needs some handles which I'm getting on with in a minute.
Can't decide if I want to line this one, hmm have I even got anything that garish in my stash!

I'm pleased with the bottom shape ( oooo scuse me sounds a bit rude)

And this project is probably going to be the longest 
all these little daisy squares ( I made the pattern myself, although it's probably been done before) are going to be a double bed sized blanket.
At the moment I have enough to just about cover our feet. Let's hope it's not a cold winter eh!

On top of all that I'm still spinning and loving it.
Oh I'm off.
Sorry too much to do!
Have a great weekend.
 Get outside and enjoy the world!
Lots of love


  1. My Grandmother used to say 'Please yourself then at least somebody is happy'! I love the little bird, so pretty...I have the wantsies now very badly! :) x

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…
