Good Morning............

I have never posted at this time before........ and that is because I am out AGAIN tomorrow..... I  have had my going out feet on all week and it has been exciting............  My cousin helped me on Thursday to get my quilt together as it it King size,........... feels more like a football pitch, sewing it will be a nightmare, as I have never done anything so big..........(.sorry the pic is sqew-wif.)....Last night I went to my Grandsons last charity night as Mayor of Westhoughton,  he was the second youngest ever UK Mayor, beaten by one in Cumbria, two months younger. He has had a fantastic year at now 23 years old and along with his girlfriend Amy, they have raised over £20.000 again, a record for the area.......AND it was a concert by the Houghton Weavers (formed in 1975 and still going strong) and Ryan played along with them in six songs on keyboard!(How proud was I lol)
A very successful evening........ today I have been to the garden centre nearby  and got some plants for the baskets........... one job creates three more it seems........ anyway............the card today is for my Cousin Brenda on her 39th wedding anniversary, they are off to Blackpool on Saturday for  the week, so this image from just ink-lined seemed very much appropriate!
It's not very often we see the sun shine in the North West lol and I have never, in 60 something years seen the water as blue as this either...Sorry Blackpool, you still need to get you act together lol..........don't let it put you off, it's a wonderful place to visit, and we have lovely donkeys on the sands, so gentle..........I tried to give it a bit of a  saucy postcard feel

Fabulous card Tilly...this image is perfect! It's definitely a seaside postcard image and right in keeping with Blackpool.
You have been super busy!
I, on the other hand, have done bugger all and there is a pile of washing so high that there's a line of mountaineers outside waiting to scale it :(

Big hugs
