Halloween pumpkin

First LO for November, taken from pics when I made my carved pumpkin this year. He's sitting on my kitchen windowsill looking evil atm :D

MIL's Tigger

Originally done for the weekly challenge before I realised that the colours were wrong, so I finished it anyway, 'cos he's really gorgeous and deserves a LO of his own since his sister Sam already has one done. Albeit hers is called FatCat!!

New desk in my craft room

Got totally fed up of never having room to put all my stuff so at 3am when I couldn't sleep I came up with a plan to overhaul the space using 2 sheets of 8'x4' sheeting I had in the shed.
Took 3 days to finish but it's well worth it!!

From this..... Old paste table and one shelf......

To this.... loads of space for my storage boxes and paper

I'm so happy and also a bit chuffed with my idea and how well it came together.

Merlin in the grass

Merlin looking at me in confusion wondering why Mummy is lying down on her belly in the grass with that camera.

So Ugly

Red River Hogs at Howletts Zoo. They fascinated me 'cos they were just so ugly that in some ways that makes them really gorgeous too.

Feeding the ducks?

My friend Ali and her daughter Luci decided to feed the ducks in Newquay park but instead got more than they bargained for with hundreds of pigeons mobbing them. A bit scary but also really funny.
