Five Photo Friday

Hi everyone!
It's been a long long week, plagued by the back to school cold and stress levels through the roof!
Let me explain a little.
Last week I showed you a happy student back in his house at Uni in Nottingham, that's some good news.
And here is a jolly giraffe, I made for a friend.
Do you like his handspun scarf!


A late blooming rose in the garden.


And a family who have been 
AMAZING!
We had the builders in.
We don't have the builders in ANYMORE.


Basically we had to rip everything out and start again.
Of course the troops rallied round. Heather used her muscles and Oliver used his pencil finding skills to help Lovely Man put right the mess.


Here is some of that mess, these are some of the new pipes that had to come out!
Arghhhhhhh


Hopefully this weekend will see some good progress.
I'll tell you the whole sorry tale next week.
Have a good weekend
Love
♥Sue♥

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♥


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…
