Getting Organised

Well it's Monday, it's the half term holiday and I'm getting organised.
Firstly it's off to the vet for Howard.
Annual check up, which he hates, they'll be sweaty paws and lots of wailing!


Then it's some yarn sorting and spinning, I have some rather gorgeous Corridale which I've already made into a shawl but there's more and it's a dream to work with fine, soft and a beautiful dreamy grey, perfect for today in fact.



And finally I've restocked my Etsy shop, go and take a little look if you like, I'm hoping to add some handspun to my listings this week too..............If I get organised!

Hope you are all busy crafting and making and imagining great things.
Love
♥Sue♥

    1. Oh Amy it was all trauma as I knew it would be, I nearly lost a hand getting him into his box and then to add to his misery the vet pronounced him FAT! Poor Howard LOL.

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…

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♥
