How are you all?
I've been enjoying all the interesting new year blog posts so much
 I've neglected to write one of my own!
Lots of resolutions about, lots of claims to get more organised, improve, get fit, eat healthy, craft more etc etc. I applaud you all because frankly I'm hopeless at making keeping resolutions!
This year I'm going to call them...........wishes, yes wishes I like that sounds more ethereal more as if things could just come upon you without too much effort LOL!
My wishes are
Improve my crochet and spinning skills
Return to knitting
Read more
Swear less
Get fit
Find time
Avoid stress
So if my wish fairy is watching could you wave your wand a bit in my direction please. But if you're busy elsewhere don't fret my life is pretty wonderful just as it is.

My decorations are all packed away now.
Goodbye baubles

Goodbye Christmas robin

Goodbye sparkles

 I've had a few lovely walks although it's been very, very grey.

I've also been crocheting, this is a blanket for my lovely Dad.
The colours haven't come out very well, that's because it's been so very GREY!

I'm also enjoying the first issue of Simply Crochet

All's good in the world.

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…
