Xmas, Happyings and Spitfires

Hello my dears

I have been crafting and photographing.
My xmas cards are finally coming along quite nicely. I have gone for an unusual colour pallet this year - Smokey Slate, Riding Hood Red, Basic grey and Cream. I based my colour choice on some wonderful ribbon I found at our local haberdashers.

And here is a little teaser: what could this be leading too?!?

Do you remember my lovely "HAPPYINGS" jar?
Well I complete forgot to share my updated jar design with you.......DOH!
So here it is -

A very happy "Happyings" jar
I have to say I am quite looking forward to sharing some of my Happying with you all. It's quite full

Graham and I were out on one of our geocaching adventures around EM Airport when we heard a rather strange noise. After a few minutes we realised what it was......a magnificent spitfire.
Rolls Royce store one of the last surviving Spitfires right on their doorstep. We were just fortunate enough to be stood close to the airport fence when it came out onto the runway. It was coming in to land as I caught this photo.

What else have I been up to??

How about this little fellow
Kindly modelled by my loving hubby
I crocheted this tiny cheeky chap purely to see how small I could manage. Using a 1.25mm hook and fine mercerised crochet thread. My minnion (micro minnion) stands 2cm tall. I plan to convert him into a badge.

Well, I shall be back soon with another xmas card sneak peak and more crochet madness

Goodness....time flies


I can't believe we are already in November......where has it all gone???

OK, if I'm honest I have hardly sat still for the last few months..don't get me wrong I LOVE CHOAS, busy is best in my book.
So a quick review....

Graham and I cahed our hearts out close to home mid-september

Went racing at Donington Park,750's were brilliant. Shame someone was giving attitude...LOL

At the end of September

Found this fabulous photo opportunity whilst geo-caching in Cromford.

It took a couple of shots to get the exposure and appeture just right.
Needless to say I'm quite pleased with this one.

A couple of weeks later, we returned to the peaks to find a few more geo-caches. Graham snuck in a quick shot of me signing the log-book of Arkwright Country at sheeps pasture.
The view from this cache is wonderful, I could have sat there for hours.

See, cache with a view.

It's views like this that make scrambling about in weed-covered fields searching for small tupperware boxes worth the effort

Now I know we don't celebrate Halloween the way america/canada do, BUT, our local dairy ice-cream farm is famous for producing unique ice-creams.
To bring the taste of Halloween to dessert.....they have created this gorgeous Pumpkin Pie ice-cream.

 And  YES  it is to die for!!!!!!!!!!! I have a litre in the freezer.......yum!

There has been more caching and racing but now for the real business
My xmas box card 
I've entered this in the papertake weekly challenge "anything goes"
