Show & Tell Time!

Oh dear, I'm running a little late.  Only a day or so.  I'm just so wrapped up trying to figure out socks, that the days slipped up on me.  Who would of thought one could become obsessed with a knitted tube? *sigh* But now it's time to pay it forward!

June's Show and Tell is Sue at The Quince Tree.  Sue is a fellow crocheter and home maker in Worcester, England. I don't know how many followers she has, but I'm sure it's a ton.  She mostly blogs about food and healthy food at that.  Her photos are amazing and having made a couple of her recipes, I can say that the food is pretty dang good too.

I mean seriously, look at that food?  Doesn't it look amazing?  Yummy?  Hello?!?  Have you left to go scrounge through your kitchen now?  I will admit that the one drawback to her blog is that I'm usually hungry after reading her posts.  There is just something so amazing about these photos that makes my mouth water and my hips quiver with growth as they try to break free from the tight confines of the cloth that contains them from over exposure. I seriously feel like I've gained weight on some days. As I'm writing this, these two lovely items to the right are on her blog along with Nutella Cupcakes...Oh....My...Goodness...Did you hear that?  Sorry, it was my stomach.  Seriously though, the thing that I love about her is that so many of her recipes are truly healthy and made with natural, fresh ingredients, which of course makes them taste better. She also has great tips for stocking a healthy pantry and fridge and some money saving tips as well.  Go check her out.  You will thank me later, but your waistline might not :)

Legal Jargon - Disclaimer - the pictures above are from Sue's Blog.  They are solely her work, her photography and her property.  I am not claiming them as my own in any way, shape or form cause I ain't no thief.  Also, Sue doesn't know me from Adam's house cat so this is not a paid endorsement.  Does that take care of all the legal stuff? Thank you for your time!

Now for a quick sock update.  My first sock is still sitting in my bag waiting for my meeting with my Yarn Girls (Waving - Hey Ladies!)  I think it might be a little disgusted with me, but not nearly as disgusted as I am with it. Car Guy actually caught me scowling at it...Ooops!  My second sock is coming along nicely and I am currently working on the heal flap.  Next comes the heel, which is where everything fell apart last time.  Oh dear!  We'll see how this goes. And while we are here, talking about my socks, I just want to take a moment and thank everyone for their encouragement, sweet emails and virtual lessons.  You guys are so awesome!! I don't know what I'd do without you......except maybe not knit socks? Anyway, you are much appreciated!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  I'm off to work on my heel flap & eat lunch, cause for some crazy reason, I'm really hungry now.


  1. Wow!I'm gobsmacked (as we say over here). What a lovely surprise. Thank you so much:o)

  2. I always read Sue's blog too.. she's so honest and true and love her green ideas and cooking -- and her great macro shots!

    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Yes I love Sue's blog too. I am thinking I may knit my dad a pair of socks for Father's Day this year, seeing as how I have finally stopped procrastinating about crocheting a blanket and am actually doing it, I should follow that up with socks!!
