Bonfire Night

No stitching tonight as it is Bonfire Night.  We had our 2 small boxes of fireworks and 2 small packs of rockets (BOGOF at Sainsbury's) and thoroughly enjoyed oohing and aahing at them.  It's quite nice actually that the children (12 and 14) still enjoy them as they are only a cheap box.  We went to an organised display last year and didn't enjoy it nearly as much as standing in our back yard doing our own.  With football training and Girl's Brigade, we had a box before and a box when everyone got back so it feels like an evening of them.

Don't forget to sign up for the travelling pattern and/or competition if you would like to.  If you would just like to stitch the pattern, that's fine.  You don't have to enter the competition!!  Comment on this post if you would like to join in the fun!

Please pass me on the travelling pattern: it is a lovely idea though and I am looking forwards to seeing what people come up with. I just dont have time at the moment. I didnt even realise it was bonfire night! Fireworks are illegal in Southern Ireland so we dont get endless bangers etc..must admit I dont miss em much but I do miss the toffee apples and hash we used to eat with the toffee my mum made..oh and baked potatoes! Er..see a pattern here rofl xxx Enjoy those sparklers xx
