Creative 2014

It's that time of year again, I'm looking back at all that I've achieved creatively,
 somehow I don't feel as if I've managed to get much done. It's been that kind of year, a constant feeling of not enough time coupled with general blehhhhh has resulted in not as much as I'd hoped!


What I have made has pleased me hugely though, and my spinning has come on really well.
I'm now able to keep a consistent thickness most of the time! I really enjoy the whole process and am now hankering after a drum carder to blend my own yarns on.


Of course my creative time has been used up by a couple of major DIY projects.
THE DECK
An impulsive project that took alot longer than we expected, but was so worth it since we now pretty much live out there.

And
THE BATHROOM 
which if you read my blog regularly you'll know was a VERY tricky project, especially as we weren't supposed to be doing the work at all! You can read the sorry tale here.


2014 has been a year of just ticking by, of somehow not quite getting there, of a little bit under par.
I feel as if I'm coming through it a bit now, maybe.
I'm hoping that 2015 will see a return to my old self with the energy and enthusiasm to get stuck in to life a bit more whole heartedly. In the meantime I'm cosy and comfortable surrounded by my lovely family and friends and just making the most of this quiet time............I'm daring to have a few little dreams...............I'm getting ready.
I think 2015 will be a good year.
I hope that you're lives are full of love and contentment and that all your wishes for 2015 come true.
Much 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…
