Warning - infrequent poster alert!!!

Just had to share this pic of the sunset taken from my balcony the other night... all those aeroplane trails in the sky make me want to save my pennies and go fly somewhere again mysefl!

OK, so I've not updated for a while - just goes to show that time really does fly when you're having fun!

The UKScrappers cybercrop went really well - got some nice layouts done and am pleased with the amount that I did. However, that was over a month ago now and I've still to finish clearing my craft desk off (oops...)

Pete's funeral was a really lovely occasion, I think we did him proud. The church was packed out and several of us made it up to the crem afterwards, which was very emotional. Some beautiful floral tributes to the big man, including at least 2 wreaths in the shape of a guitar... Afterwards we went back to the Sutton Arms for the wake and it was again packed out. I had to work during the afternoon/early evening but managed to get back to the pub before they closed to catch up with some old friends.
This Saturday the Sutton Arms had another tribute night to him, his band Hair of the Dog played with some guest singers and players, a very enjoyable evening. It's still very strange walking into the pub and not seeing Pete sat in his corner, not sure how long I'll feel that way but there are plenty of friendly faces there to chat with.

And talking of chatting with friends, I joined Facebook a while back but have only really just started using it - 18 out of my 23 friends so far on there are people I know from the pub... I really must get out more...!

Crafting-wise I'm making "inchies" - inch-square pieces of artwork for another swap on UKScrappers. I'm doing 30 in 3 batches of 10 and so far the first set have come out just about ok, but the second set have gone a bit perculiar... not quite sure whether I can rectify the problem or whether I should just start again.
