This is her design that she cut out for the pumpkin this year. My hands aches from scraping out the inside, altogether it took me around 4 hours.
Well worth it though, her face was a picture when she came home from school to see it lit!!
We had a few trick or treaters, not as many as last year. After the disco she and her friend decided to trick or treat, it was spitting to start with and then got heavier and then the heavens opened, I was soaked and wanted to come home, but the pair of them were adamant they were carrying on.
Still they had a great time and that's all that matters at the end of the day.

This is our home grown pumpkin for Halloween. All 2 stone 6lbs of it. I can't lift it to the worktop, so I've got my cushion all ready to sit in front of it for a few hours on the floor.
I've also measured the base of it and it's too big for the windowsill, so it looks like it's going to be outside on a teracotta pot - let's hope nobody pinches it.

I think it's Halloween for the next one and then Christmas each week from then on. It's amazing how this year has flown by.

It's half term now and once we've tidied up, we're going to decorate the hall with some autumn decorations. We've got a few things planned for half term, one being a halloween trail at Rufford Park and the cinema one day too.

I've finished another scarf and will show the photo later when my camera is charged again.

I went to craft class this morning, it's usually on a Tuesday but we've got a workshop tomorrow. There were only three of us in the end that could make it and this is what we made. I'm thrilled to bits.
Large bauble with small bauble inside.

I'm almost finished another scarf and I have another couple in the pipelines. I also plan on making one and auctioning it off for Breast Cancer Care.
