I got back this afternoon from the Blackpool balloon bash.
We decided to spend another night in Blackpool due to the weather.

I will post some of the balloon pictures later, it was nice meeting a lot of new people
and catching up with others. It was a laugh, then again I always have a laugh
where ever I go with the latex.

This time I was the Cadburys milk tray abseiling man,
you possibly had to be there but it was a very funny night.

Zoe making her dress, I think it was a shame that the three dress's made were
not worn and mentioned as quite a time was being spent on them.

Michael re-freshed my memory on how to make the cube. I have
been informed this is a Brian Asman design, I was going wrong on
stage two of three. I used to make this quite regularly a while back.
The good thing is it will take your weight and you can stand on it.

The base of the lamp upside down could have been the start of an
Olympic flame or any flame really.

I made the lamp slightly shorter, it looked too tall to me before.
