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♥

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♥

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. 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.

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!
