Up, Up And Away!!!

Hubby has spent part of both days of the weekend with his head in the clouds..........literally.
Saturday he had a free trial flight in a small plane at our local airfield and today he finally got his hot air balloon flight which we gave him for his 60th birthday last year. We had to be up at 5am this morning to be at the launch field for 6:15am. It was fascinating to watch them prepare the balloon and see them taking off but you would never get me up in one of them. The brilliant thing is that they film the whole journey and you can order a copy of the film as a keepsake which hubby did. Can't wait to see that.
We went in two cars as DD and I didn't fancy sitting in a field for three hours waiting for them to get back......especially as there were no loos in the area.

At the moment I have swapped my quilting for making Christmas decorations using felt which is something I haven't done for years and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I do need to get on with finishing off the lap quilts for the living room though as it is getting quite chilly at night.

I'm off to do some online shopping now for some felt in vintage colours if I can find any.
Thanks for dropping by.
