Anyways on to Bonfire night! For the last few bonfire nights I've been in work and unable to really go to a display or anything as I was either in until late and missed it completely or by the time I got in from the earlier shift and had my tea I didn't want to go out int he cold again! This year I had heard there was going to be a craft fair on at the same time as the fireworks so I thought why not! Turns out it was a great idea. The craft fair was held in this lovely Victorian glass Palm House they have in out Local Park.
This isn't actually a great picture as the light was all odd! But you can just about make out the shape. You can also get married here, that really would be amazing!! Outside they had a load of different food stalls! I ended up with Churros and Belgian chocolate and a lovely hot chocolate drink! My boyfriend got a hot dog and some gluwein, which I believe is a German hot mulled wine thing but I may be wrong!
WE had a nose around the craft bit too! I love craft fairs, people are just so talented! After that we made our way to were the display was. I must admit I'm not a massive fan of fireworks when they aren't in a professional display because I always think they are going to land on me and I HATE sparklers! I like to took at them but they terrify me! The display was remembrance day themed and was very good!
It was hard to get good photos but I gave it my best shot :-P We decided to go back to the craft fair again and get some more food. We ended up with soup, muffins and burgers :-P It was a very food filled night indeed! At this point it was literally freezing, i had no gloves or hat and only my thin autumn scarf on. We hadn't noticed but it was really foggy too!
It was a good night though so I'm glad we went, even if my fingers were about to drop off in the end haha!!
So that's it for bonfire night! Now I have a photo of the project I was working on all last week! The customer has received it and seems very pleased with it so that's made me happy too! I already have an order for another one! It's not in my shop at the moment because I didn't have time to take good photos of it but I do have a couple of ones I took on my phone!
Ta-dah! What do you all think? The ears are quite big on this one and I would probably do them a little smaller but as I say the customer really liked it so yay!! I'm dying to experiment with different animals!! I've seen a lovely wool that would make a great polar bear :-P I'm just waiting for the wool to arrive before I start the next one!! Check out Snow Bunnys Knits for more of my knitting...sorry for the shameless self promotion there :-P
Anyways bye for now :-)
