Five Photo Friday

I'm starting a new little feature on my blog today. It might be weekly or it might just pop up occasionally! I keep finding photos on my camera that lay undiscovered and unloved so I though I'd share them with you. Just a random selection, a look through my eyes at my life. Hope you enjoy them So INTRODUCING
FIVE PHOTO FRIDAY





Hope you enjoyed them! Have a good weekend. Love ♥Sue♥

I love the holidays!

So today I got up nice and early and spent a couple of hours digging on my allotment. Some of that time was spent hiding in my shed extracting angry ants from inside my clothes!  Boy they were vicious. Anyway I did good work. On my way home I dropped by to visit our local swans, this is mum being very busy last week.

And today. Rubbish photo I know BUT LOOK babies cute little babies and look closer one more egg to go. Wonder if it will hatch, she seemed very attentive to it, so we shall see!



Back indoors I'm all in a spin. Some grey

Some blue

Plied together. Pretty!

Another look, really pretty. Added to my stash.

Been busy with the dye pot too.  This is 500grams of merino dyed in many shades of gorgeous purple. It's going to be a lovely poncho for Heather.

See how it spins. OMG!

Back at the wheel...........

........ Literally I've been struck down with a hideous virus, laid low in all ways. It's a hazard of working with small children! But I'm back behind the wheel now.   Back to work today armed with a supply of tissues and cough sweets, my life is so glamorous.
Now I feel I should warn you at this point, this is a looooong post.
Get yourself a cuppa and a little treat, get comfy, ready, here we go then!

So I've been back at my spinning wheel. Fighting this yarn once more, you may remember the sorry tale of the felted roving I managed to spin some at the time. Boy it was hard work.
Now I don't know what the logic was but I decided to get my spinning mojo back I'd spin some nearly impossible felt.
Yuh it was even harder than I remembered!
I thought my fingers were going to drop off.

I didn't worry too much about spinning it too fine and I found that drafting it by pulling it apart across the roving rather than along it's length made the job alot easier.

But I was very…

Wonderful Weekend

Oh what a glorious weekend we had here in the South of England. I even put my shorts on for a little while! What did you all get up to? What did I get up to? Well, as the evening get longer we've been popping out to catch the sunset. This shot is taken from Hayling Island looking across Langstone Harbour towards Portsmouth. Beautiful isn't it.

Saturday we headed to Petworth House to enjoy the magnificent grounds. Still some gorgeous daffodils in bloom.

The most amazing trees.

Huge!

Some of them had holes in the trunks that we stood in!

Petworth is famed for it's deer and they didn't disappoint, well they did a bit as they seemed very cunning, whenever a camera came out they didn't run away they just turned their backs!


The scenery was stunning.

Lots of photo opportunities 

Oh and one staring competition.

It was a wonderful day time to spend together relaxing.
