Crochet Comfort


Hello friends.
Firstly, just want to say thank you for all the visits to my little blog recently.
 It's a lovely feeling to know people take time to read my ramblings. I love the fact that we connect through the blogosphere sharing the things that we all love, 
it makes the world a smaller friendlier place!
I was laid low AGAIN this past week with the flu/cold/yuk bug.
Not happy.
Off work and not able to enjoy all the projects I have on the go at the moment.
Just sleep and daytime telly(yaaaawwwwwwnnnn).
All I managed was a couple of rows on my V stitch blanket.
Oh but what a comfort, snuggling underneath while I slowly hooked my way across the rows.
No thought required, no stress just soothing rhythm and flow. It has grown slowly the colours following in an organic way.
 No pattern repeat the colours blending together or singing out depending where they fall.

This week I'm back at work and frankly exhausted!
So I'm being gentle on myself, not doing too much,  sitting in the garden enjoying the signs of Spring, early nights, whisky(just a little bit!)
Hopefully my energy will return and I can get on!!!!!!
Hope you are all well and busy crafting and enjoying the start of Spring too.
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♥

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…
