What You Doing Wednesday Week 145


Good Morning Everyone!
I hope your week is going well!

Wow April all ready!!
The year seems to be rushing by so fast!

Little Red is off school at the moment
so we are busy at home.
There are quite a few things we want to do this week.

I had a fantastic birthday last week.

I'm afraid I forgot to take the pictures
but here are a few of the things I received;



My brother and his wife bought me this cross-stitch kit.
I have wanted it ever since I started cross-stitching :-).



A beautiful journal from my husband


And this beautiful ornament from Little Red.

I also got a frame for doing my cross-stitch
a necklace and bracelet set.


I also received this marbling kit from my mum and dad.
They also gave me some polystyrene eggs
to colour.
I'm really excited about this set.
They also bought me subscriptions to multiple magazines
for cross-stitch.
I am so looking forward to receiving them all :-)

By the way if you want to keep up with what I am upto
I have started using Instagram more;

I try and put a picture on everyday or every other day.

Now what I'm making;


I'm still knitting my bag.
It's coming along slowly.
I really need to keep practicing and getting my knitting faster.
I'm loving the #Adriafil #Kimera yarn



Little Red's Easter card is coming along.
I'll hopefully get it finished in the next few days.


My Ocean Waves Summer Sarong/Shawl
made with #Adriafil #Galassia yarn


This is going to be my mum and dad's Easter card.
I hope I get them all finished in time!

Sterling Silver 6mm Cubic Earrings



As someone who is allergic to most metals these earrings are perfect.
They are made out of silver so don't affect most allergies.


Not only that they are stylish, sophisticated
but a very reasonable price. 


You open your package to find a beautiful box inside.
The box is perfect as packaging for a gift.



When you open the box you won't be disappointed.


The earrings are well made and feel like quality.



Don't they just look perfect!
The earrings are brilliant as a present to yourself
or what about a special gift for a friend or member
of your family.
I love these earrings and have worn them everyday
since they have arrived.
Everyone has commented on how good they look.


They are good quality, look beautiful and are at a reasonable price.





I received the product to review.

I've Made Friday Week 144


Good Morning everyone!
I hope your week is going well.
I hope you are looking forward to the weekend.

Wow what a week!
With getting ready for all the stuff to go to charity
and having meetings at school it's been hectic.
We also had Little Red's dance recital to go to
and his Easter service at church.

Poor Benji hasn't known what is going on.
He isn't used to me going out so much.

It was also my birthday yesterday.
I'm writing this in advance as my mum and dad
were taking me out yesterday
so I wanted to make sure I got it done.

I'll hopefully have some pictures for you
next week showing some of the amazing presents
I have received.
I am really a lucky person!!

I've got a couple of finishes this week;

These aren't very exciting but they are for hubby.
He doesn't like any light when he is trying to sleep.
We have a virgin box and an alarm clock in the bedroom.
So I have made these covers for the clocks so that it's completely dark for him.
I doubled them up and just made them with a basic sc.


I finished my Easter card from my niece.
The design is from 1000 Mini Cross Stitch Motifs.
I actually made a mistake on the right hand side
but hopefully it doesn't look too bad.

Now it's time for linky love.

What You Doing Wednesday Week 144


Good Morning Everyone!
I hope your week is going well!

Spring has sprung and the sun has been shining :-).
I love the sunshine.

We've had a bit of a hectic week so far.
I decided to contact a charity
to see if they could do a collection.
They said yes and are coming today.
This has meant a house spring clean.
Little Red doesn't like giving things away
but he has finally agreed to.
As I can't do much I've been the one sorting
the electrical items etc. It's meant I can sit
down and organize things whilst hubby
runs around sorting everything else out.
We literally had a complete room of stuff
to giveaway.
I love the fact that things we aren't using
can be given to a charity and it means
it's going to go to someone who will use it.

We had a meeting about Little Red
and his school this week.
He has lost quite a bit of confidence since
he has started doing writing for himself.
This is common with dyslexic children.
His vocabulary is way beyond his reading
and writing skills.
It also takes a long time for him to write things
down and it doesn't look as neat.
School will work with him and they are going
to keep an eye on him at playtimes
as it's affecting his confidence there as well
which has meant he is getting pushed around
by a number of children. 
It's positive in a lot of ways because school
is working more with us now.

Now onto what I am making this week;


I'm making a dog picture for Little Red's Easter card.
He chose it out of the Cross Stitcher 
magazine from April 2004.
I can't wait to show you it finished.
I'm really enjoying cross-stitch at the moment.


This is going to be my first Knitting pattern that I have designed.
I think I'm going to call it Making Waves Summer Bag.
It's made using #Adriafil #Kimera Yarn.

Now it's your turn to share what you are doing.
It doesn't have to be crochet, anything you are making
is perfect.
