What a glorious weekend!
The temperature soared upwards just how I like it.
Sunday we spent the day mooching around at home just enjoying the sunshine in the garden.
We made Lemon balm tea to keep us cool, and young, according to my herbal book!

I did a spot of plying

Then coffee time, in the garden of course.

With croissants, yummy.

Indoor time to watch the tennis and a bit of knitting.
Actually no knitting cos the tension was waaay to great!
An amazing match full of drama and excitment.........almost too much to watch.
We cheered, everyone cheered, The whole of the UK cheered.
Well done Andy Murray a proper champion.
It occurred to me that the last time England won Wimbledon my Dad was three and my 
Mum wasn't even born!!!!!

A bit of a blow along the seafront, still busy even at 7 o'clock.

Hazy but beautiful.

Finally to top off the day a session at a local pub with a bit of live music.
Here's Lovely Man playing his drum.

Hope you all had a glorious weekend, isn't life great when the sun shines!!!!!
Am going to spend as much time outside with the little folk at school today.
See ya!

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…
