Wonderful Weekend

 Oh what a glorious weekend we had here in the South of England.
I even put my shorts on for a little while!
What did you all get up to?
What did I get up to?
Well, as the evening get longer we've been popping out to catch the sunset.
This shot is taken from Hayling Island looking across Langstone Harbour towards Portsmouth.
Beautiful isn't it.

Saturday we headed to Petworth House to enjoy the magnificent grounds.
Still some gorgeous daffodils in bloom.

The most amazing trees.


Some of them had holes in the trunks that we stood in!

Petworth is famed for it's deer and they didn't disappoint, well they did a bit as they seemed very cunning, whenever a camera came out they didn't run away they just turned their backs!

The scenery was stunning.

Lots of photo opportunities 

Oh and one staring competition.

It was a wonderful day time to spend together relaxing.
Next time we're going to go in the house too.

Sunday we spent in the garden pottering, one of my favourite ways to spend the day.
These lovely cherry blossoms are in my next door neighbours garden, pretty aren't they.

Howard chilled out too!
He's good at that.

Time for some hooky fun to of course, just a few coasters for our new coffee table and some little motifs for a bit of a secret project I'm toying with.

And finally a little gift for one of my bestest friends in the whole world.
Cute and quick to make, it only took a couple of hours!
I found the free pattern here

Anyway today saw us all back in our woolies, brrrr chilly.
How was your weekend, did you get up to anything crafty, or go out adventuring? 
Do tell I'd love to hear.
Next time I'm talking spinning.
See you soon!

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…
