Summer's here!

Hello, how are you all?
I'm still feeling yuk and waiting to find out what's wrong, 
but am just ignoring it cos being ill is sooo boring!
Here in Sunny Portsmouth, we've been enjoying glorious weather this week, it feels like Summer's here!
We've been enjoying some serious deck time, it's wonderful.
Best thing we ever did in our garden! 
Last night we fired up the chiminea, and just spent time together, so relaxing.
Ha ha you didn't expect it to look like that did you! 
It is the creation of my Lovely Man of course and is an actual work of art, by the way it doesn't normally have a saucepan on the top, there was some experimenting with heating water going on here!

Beautiful isn't it. Made from an old beer barrel!


By the way it is enormous and weighs a ton which is a bit of a hallmark of Lovely Man, we love it.
I've been spinning a lot this week too and having a sort out of all my yarn.
There's quite a lot!






Some of them have found their way to my shop. I'm hoping to add some more and some of my hand painted roving, so keep a look out.
How's the blanket going? Slowly is how's it's going I'm making myself sew in at least ten ends a night, nearly done now but next time I'm going to definitely sew as I go!


So that's a little round up of my week, it's been lovely hope yours has too.
Take care my blogland friends see you soon.
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…
