I'm Back!!!!!

That was a very 
two weeks wasn't it.
Anyway I'm back now, summer was fab, our holiday was amazing and well 
I've just been enjoying a bit of down time. 
But never fear there has been making and doing!
"What you bin up to Sue I hear you all cry?"
You remember Heather's poncho yarn, it's all made into a stunningly gorgeous poncho thanks to my lovely Mum, such beautiful knitting, I added a pretty crochet border and 
hey presto!
What d'you think?

It looks amazing on Heather.
I had a play with my dye pot over the summer too.
Two completely different colour combinations.
I love the rainbow. I plied this using the Navajo technique. 

 I love this colour too!

I'm trying to be braver with my colour choices, choosing colours I wouldn't normally choose! 
So not so much pink, purple and greens!
My next spinning project is on the wheel as we speak, it's going to be a cardigan for ME!
I just need to find a few extra hours in the day to find the time to actually spin.
How was your summer? What projects are you all working on? 
Do tell.
Look out for some holiday snaps on Friday.
Back soon

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!

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

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.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

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!
