Show and Tell 2013

Hello have you missed me, I've been busy, what with trips to the North and work, time just runs away with usual!
And I forgot, it's that time of year when family and friends gather together for our now annual.
More rosettes to be won!
(warning this is a long post)

Much feverish preparation.
Tom and Jacob took over the kitchen.

Actually Tom took over the dining room too.
Don't ask...........the results were very popular though!

Little bit of rule breaking as Mum and Auntie Trissie helped 
Heather sort her fudge topping out, hmmm sure the rules said no assistance allowed!!!

Jacob's lemon curd puff pastry creations.
Very popular.

White chocolate cheesecake by Tom.
Frankly divine!

Just a small selection of the cakes.

and confectionery (did you spot my Turkish Delight)

Plenty of infusions and home brew. Way hey, lots of people walked home!!

Like last year judging was taken very seriously

Yarncraft corner

Lovely little knitted fairy!

These three ladies spent ages deciding which spirits were best and I mean ages!!!!!

Last years Photography winner trying out the cakes

Oh the choice, honestly we were so full cos as well as all the cakes there were jars of jams, chutney, marmalade and gorgeous breads of ever description. 
Didn't manage to snap them couldn't get near enough!

After fair and scrupulous scoring the winners were declared.

Brilliant fun again, do it, have a Show and Tell yourselves it's such a lovely way to spend time together and everyone had a go at something............the prizes are just a bonus.

So now what next.
A bit of relaxation and finish my blanket,
Be back later in the week to show you.
Just wanted to say thank you for coming and visiting me in my little world, I love to share and your comments and visits mean alot to me.


  1. Wow, that looked like fun. I want to come! I'd help with the judging, actually I'd want to join in too as I'm (secretly) very competitive! Maybe you could sell tickets, bit too far to travel really though, sadly!

    1. Ha ha we're thinking we might need to get a field and marquee for next year LOL! Why don't you have your own Show and Tell? I'm sure lots of your friends have hobbies and talents you don't even know about and would love to share given have a chance, especially if there's a prize!!!!!

  2. That's so lovely - the stuff real life should be made of.

    1. Thanks Claire, it was lovely it seems the people in my life are a very talented bunch!

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.

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 …

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.

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♥
