Show and Tell Results Show!

Remember I was busy.
Oh my goodness what a blast, 
what a fantastic way to spend an evening. Friends and family brought all manner of goodies for our Show and Tell. Much more than we expected, people really entered into the spirit of things. Honestly if you want to have fun hold a Show and Tell evening!
We had eight categories.

Chutney and Pickle
Jams and Jelly
Photos and Pictures

Early setup looked promising,
Lovely Man's delicious bread, my Mum's famous swiss roll and our jam and jelly!

Once folk started to arrive things very quickly began to fill up.

My brother came with a Curios entry of Parsnip soup!

The stakes were high, who wouldn't want a rosette!

Adam popped in to inspect the photos.

The lovely Jo really pushed the boat out and brought her spinning wheel.
We all had a go, It's soooo tricky.
That wheel went very, very fast and kept grabbing the yarn out of my hands.

Jo thought I may have more success on the chopstick and potato.
Ta Dah!
Yeh I made that, gorgeous isn't it.... even and smooth LOL!

Some were more adept than me.
Soon have enough for a scarf there Helen.

Very soon things hotted up and 
The Judging commenced. 

Serious business


so much to consider

so much to taste

hmm sometimes we had to go back

and try it all again!

The people deliberated, pondered and examined 

My dad's photo entry featured many of us dancing in our group Chequered Flag, sneaky. As someone said "If I'm in the picture it's got my vote!!!!"

My photos were scrutinised
(not on their sides, Blogger won't let me turn this photo, why?)

Garys featured some exotic animals.

The photos were all great,
and varied

There was food too(as if we needed it!)
Including for all your seventies children 
Evaporated milk jelly
Fluffy Cloud
Ah the memories!

Very popular it was too!

Winners were chosen and presented with their prizes!

The final winning line up.
Guess what Lovely Man won the photo section (lovely picture of a breakwater)
Me and my brother didn't get a look in, serves us right for being competitive LOL.
Mum won the Jam and jelly, stupendous marmalade!
I won the yarncraft with my mermaid!

What an evening, what fun, we're already planning next years event, with a new category of Origami!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend.


  1. Hi Sue! It's me again!
    You all looked to have had a MARVELOUS time! How creative and, I mean this to be a HUGE COMPLEMENT ....
    old fashioned. Just like folks did years ago, getting together to share interests, time and fun ..... with good food and a genuine competitiveness thrown in.
    Very Inspiring and good to read :0)
    Here's to next year!

Five Photo Friday

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.

That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥

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.

 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 …
