All Change!

Big News (no not Obama winning)
My phone is fixed, sorted hooray!
And back to normal.
 I've been playing with my yarns. A bit of spinning and a bit of crochet. My daisy blanket is coming on nicely now, still had no volunteers to sew in the granny square ends though.
Now do you remember this yarn?
I dyed it with food colouring and spun it up as a single and I was very pleased with it.
Being merino it's incredibly soft and fluffy perfect for a snuggly scarf.
So that's what I've been doing.

A nice easy lacy pattern taken from this book I used the V stitch lattice pattern, very, very easy.

Do you like it, it's pretty.
But not really colours that I'd wear very often and I want to wear it........often.

So out with the dye pot and after a bit of overdying.
Ta Dah

What do you think, now I 
it's just perfect goes with practically everything I own 

Merino so soft so light so delicious

So cosy round my neck!
I love the variations in colour.
I'm calling it my Perfect Purple Scarf

And I'm wearing it to work today.
I love, love, love dyeing wool. It is officially the best fun you can have with vinegar and food colouring!
I have also been dyeing up some merino with actual proper Ashford dyes.
Can't wait to show you how that turned out.................oooooooo it's beautiful with a capital B.
Right I'm off splatter paint firework painting today yipee.
Lots of love

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♥
