Sun, Sons, Spinning and a Supermoon!

HELLO!
Hope you are all tickety boo.
I had an action packed week and weekend (as usual).
We all got a bit excited didn't we when the sun came out and it was...........
.............well like summer. Lovely Man and I made the most of it with evening walks along the shore.
Down to the old wreck.

I'm calling it the Whale Boat, it's been decaying here for many years, this is all that's left now.
Beautiful isn't it.


Love the copper rivets.


The evening light has been simply gorgeous.


We've also been helping Lovely Oliver to move house, setting up home with his girlfriend, a momentous event and so wonderful to see them starting out their life journey together.

Hard work though lots of lifting and shifting. 
We rewarded ourselves with a delicious summery swiss roll!





In between times I've been spinning away on my trusty wheel.
Two shades of purple.



Gorgeous merino a joy to spin and I'm getting better at keeping it all even and fine.
And as always such a relaxing thing to do.



Doesn't that look scrummy like a purple cloud!


I've plied 3 skeins so far with two more to do.
How gorgeous is that!!!!!

I had a go at navajo plying too, made my head spin to read the instructions but when I actually did it,
 it was more straightforward than I thought.
I've put it on my list of spinning adventures.


And after a super busy weekend we popped out on Sunday evening to try and catch the Supermoon.
Yeah there it is.....not.........too many clouds but what a wonderful evening!


It did show it's face later on and very lovely it was too!

In other news. 
My Mum is no better and we have no news as to what might be the problem. 
She's in alot of pain most of the time and understandably getting very fed up!
It's a worry, a big worry.
It's all keeping me very busy!
Wishing you all a sunny week.
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…

Sunday

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♥


Five Photo Friday

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♥
