Bright Jewel Blanket

Yay!
All the ends are sewn in, finally.
Oh hello, got a little bit over excited there!


I am loving this blanket so much.
 Just have to decide on an edging, nothing too fancy I think and I'm thinking the navy blue is the perfect colour. 
The yarn is Patons Diploma Gold DK which is a practical mix of wool, nylon and acrylic. It comes in lots of scrummy colours and is a dream to crochet with, having a beautiful drape and handle making it feel much more luxurious than it is!

Isn't it wonderful that Spring has sprung, flowers, birds, lighter evenings and the promise of long lazy summer days.

Blossom time!

Seeing blue sky and blossom has lifted my spirits a bit because frankly I've been feeling rubbish, since well AGES as I mentioned before.
Today saw another trip to the doctor and finally a diagnosis.
Post Viral Fatigue/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Hmmm not nice.
At least now I know what I'm dealing with.
I'm doing a lot of sleeping and 'resting' eating properly, not that I didn't before.
I am getting out and about but not half as much as I would expect to, projects have slowed right down and enthusiasm is a bit low.
 So any suggestions on managing what may be a long term condition my friends?
I am finding spinning the most relaxing, stress free activity so am trying to spin my finest yarn yet. 
A pretty merino I dyed last summer.

It's thin, really thin. 
Small triumphs, tiny steps make me feel better.
Hoping that you are all full of the joys of Spring.
Talk soon.
Love
♥Sue♥

  1. Your blanket is gorgeous. Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, although as you said, at least you know what you are dealing with and that is better than not knowing I always think. I have no advice to give, other than to keep taking good care of yourself, and I send you hugs and all good wishes for a good recovery and great future ahead. xx

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.


Meet
 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! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

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♥

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!
