I love the holidays!

So today I got up nice and early and spent a couple of hours digging on my allotment.
Some of that time was spent hiding in my shed extracting angry ants from inside my clothes! 
Boy they were vicious.
Anyway I did good work.
On my way home I dropped by to visit our local swans, this is mum being very busy last week.

And today.
Rubbish photo I know
babies cute little babies and look closer one more egg to go.
Wonder if it will hatch, she seemed very attentive to it, so we shall see!

Back indoors I'm all in a spin.
Some grey

Some blue

Plied together.

Another look, really pretty.
Added to my stash.

Been busy with the dye pot too.
 This is 500grams of merino dyed in many shades of gorgeous purple.
It's going to be a lovely poncho for Heather.

See how it spins.

Can't get enough of this yarn.

Am off to spin some more, 
I fear things on the domestic front may slide a bit whilst I indulge in a spinning frenzy!

And remember the pink yarn I spun last week.
It's turning into a snuggly scarf.

Enjoy your week.
See you soon


  1. No wonder you're all in a spin, that yarn is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S......!! The scarf is coming along beautifully. I spied some baby swans too on my walk by the riverbank the other day, SO cute. Happy Wednesday Sue :)

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♥
