I've Made Friday Week 167


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

I am so sorry but I haven't got anything
finished for this week.

I am hoping that I'll have something for you 
next week.

I'm having fun with Red Monster
making the most of his last week off school.

The weather hasn't been brilliant but we don't mind.

It's fun just spending time together.
Playing games, cards and other such
fun things.

I'll hopefully have some pictures for
you next week showing what we've been up to.

I hope you are having a good week
and are looking forward to the weekend.

I need to knuckle down and get some Halloween
things made.

Now it's time for linky love.

What You Doing Wednesday Week 166


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

I can't believe it's September already!
Where has the summer gone?

It seems like all our time
is taken up getting ready for Red Monster
going back to school.

Hubby is also trying to get the loft sorted.
Our roof needs replacing :-(.
We got most of it done the other week
but there is still quite a bit to do.

It's amazing the amount of things
you can stuff in the loft.

I'm in a bit of a lull crochet wise.
I want to get so much done
but it's going to have to wait
till Red Monster is back at school.
He goes back on the 8th September.
He is ready for going back
but I must admit I'm going to miss him.

I've done a bit more work on his
washcloth.


It's coming together.
I hope it turns out okay.


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

I've Made Friday Week 166


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

I am super excited!!!!!
I couldn't wait for this post.

I've finished my blanket


It's not perfect.
I really need to blog it.
But I love it.
It's on my favorite chair in the conservatory
so I can sit and crochet in comfort :-)

I haven't got anything else finished this
week but I don't mind.

We are currently getting ready for
Red Monster going back to school.
His feet have been measured and as expected
his feet have grown again.
He's now in a 3 1/2 (UK)
I'm a size 5 so it won't be long before
he fits in my shoes.

Now it's time for linky love.
Please feel free to share anything you've made.

What You Doing Wednesday Week 165


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

I am super happy this week!
My blanket (afghan)
is well on the road to being finished :-)


All the squares are made, edged
& the ends all sewn in.
It's onto the joining next :-).

This has made me super happy
as it now starts to be a real blanket
and not just squares.
I am loving the colours and loving the yarn.
It's super soft and it is made so it won't bobble as much.

Things are really good at the moment.
Red Monster is working hard
and doing a small amount of work each day.
We are spending time in the garden
and in the sun (when it's out).
The break of him going to Granny & Grandad's
has been a real help.
He also had a fantastic time.

I'm still reading the same book.
I am hoping to get some more time this
weekend to get some reading done.
The rain in on the way so it will
mean a bit more time inside.


I went to the Physio this week.
She tried some other taping as I am having a bad reaction
to the other tape.


We are going to see if this works.
It's frustrating because 
I know if they manipulated my pelvis
so it sits correctly then I wouldn't 
have any issues with my knees.
I think I might see if there is a local osteopath t
hat I can go and see.

Now it's your turn to share what you are doing.

is perfect.

The Art of Cardboard ~ Book Review


The Art of Cardboard


ISBN: 9781631590276
Publication Date: 15 July 2015
RRP: £15.99

Available direct from Quarto Knows



Who knew cardboard could be so exciting!!

This book is amazing.


The book is jam packed full of amazing cardboard designs.
The creations are from all around the world
and are of an amazing array.


Each of the artists featured
use cardboard in different amazing
ways to create the most amazing
pieces of art and sculpture.


I just can't express how much is 
jam packed into this book.
I just couldn't believe so many
beautiful things could be created
by cardboard.

 

You can't help being inspired!
It just wants you want to make something amazing yourself.


The thing that fascinated me the most
was the different amazing looks each
artist has.
Considering they are using the same
material it's amazing the different things they make.


The other brilliant thing about the book
is not only can it inspire you,
it gives you instructions to make you
a number of things.


I love both the boat and the table.
I think they are fantastic and seem really easy to make.


I cannot even begin to show a small percentage
of the amazing designs in this book.
It's one of those books that you can keep on your table
and everyone will pick it up and be amazed.


If you want to start making
things with cardboard 
then this book is a good place to start.


The book gives you so much to make yourself
and also gives you so many ideas it will keep
you busy for a long time.


I love the picture frames and flowers.
I think they look amazing!
I would love to try making one of these frames!



Have you ever worked with cardboard?
If you are thinking about trying or you
just want to look at some amazing
pieces then this book would be a fantastic buy.
