Bicycle basket roses

Hello, did you all have a super weekend? Went fast didn't it.
Today I thought I'd share my bicycle basket revamp.
You may remember I treated my self to some spiffy new panniers before our holiday, but I hadn't had time to decorate them.
Sooooooo when we got back I spent a happy morning crocheting these lovely roses.


I added some leaves and spirals.


I love making spirals.


I just adjusted the size of my roses by making a different size chain.


As usual I used Stylecraft special acrylic yarn, it's hard wearing and comes in gorgeous colours.
I buy mine from here and it comes in minutes! 


I love my new basket and have had lots of people comment on how jolly they look!
I don't think I could have an undecorated basket, just wouldn't seem right!
Go on add some gorgeousness to your bike, it'll make you smile guaranteed.
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♥

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…
