Do what you love

Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved walking in the country, on these walks she would collect fleece caught on fences. She would take it home and try twisting it into yarn, mostly unsuccessfully!


 Fast forward to 2017, a Sunday stroll in the country and she's still there collecting the fleece, hoping to use it for................something. Well all those years ago I spent my time making, creating, crafting, painting, growing. I still do those things they're still the things that make me the happiest. 






So what's my point here?
 Well I remembered the other day watching one of my children as a small boy building towers, building walls, always building. The other day he came home from work, dirty, wet, tired and hungry and declared "I love my job"...............he's a bricklayer!
I remembered also watching my youngest son busy cooking up a storm standing on a chair in the kitchen................he went off and studied something else at Uni............
but he's back doing what he loves,
 working in a cafe.
 It occurred to me that we should all try to do the things we love. 
If not as a career then everyday a little moment of fulfillment,
 a little bit of time for ourselves.
Do what you love.

Love

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…

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♥


Five Photo Friday

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♥
