Things to do on a wet Sunday in September...

What a week it has been, rotten weather, the nights drawing in, baby fig has moved back home along with enough 'junk' er, I mean belongings, to fill every room in my house and my mothers!
My fantastic Mum was 70 on Thursday - she was very upset that only 1 person said "ooh, you certainly don't look 70!". We celebrated with a family meal cooked by yours truly at mummsies house, a memorable meal after the oven broke half way through me cooking the leg of lamb,  the chip shop round the corner going up in flames and filling the house with acrid oil and plastic fumes, and our paper lanterns failing to fly off into the night, preferring to drip scalding wax all over my feet instead! 

On the up side (although with this much rain it is difficult to spot silver linings!) I had some great feed back from my box making workshop, sold a kit, and am booked to do ANOTHER box workshop in Clitheroe this time, and may be getting a couple of wholesale kit orders from the same shops! to celebrate I made this cute pumpkin pin cushion for Halloween - and popped him on folksy!

Oh Hun...hee hee, am I not supposed to laugh...???? I thought you were going to say that the chippy came to the rescue for the party food but for it to set on FIRE...ha ha! Oh I do have a wicked sense of humour...
Loving your pumpkin. x

Your mum's birthday does sound memorable, I bet you will never forget that one!

Well done on the courses and wholesale order.

Sounds like you've been very busy! Love the little jack-o-lantern pin cushion, by the way. Happy belated birthday to your Mother. Hope you get some nice weather soon. :)
