I've Made Friday Week 158


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

Wow the UK got very hot.
It's calming down a bit now.

As you can imagine with it being
hot and humid I haven't
got a lot made.
It's just too hot.


I finished the things for Westhoughton Yarn Bombing event.
3 Ladybirds, 2 baskets & the last monster foot.

I'm hoping Red Monster will be better
and we can go and take loads of pictures of the yarn bombing event.
It I do I'll show you the pictures next week :-)

Now it's time for linky love.

What You Doing Wednesday Week 158


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

Wow July already!
I hope you had a good June.

Sorry this post is a bit later than normal.
Red Monster isn't very well.
He is fine in himself but is suffering from 
abdominal pain and has been up
from 1am - 3am every morning
for the last 3 days.
The Dr says he has probably had a virus
that has aggravated his stomach lining
but there is nothing we can do but
wait for it to go. 
As you can imagine we are all very tired.

It's super hot in the UK at the moment.
Everywhere is hot, hot, hot.

I've been making Ladybirds this week.


They are big ladybirds for the 
Westhoughton Yarn Bombing.
The person running the event 
wanted them in different colours.


My blanket is coming along nicely
but isn't progressing as fast this week
with the weather being so hot.


You can't see very well but Red Monster
was super excited as a mum and it's
chick were on his bird table.
The mum was feeding on the hat ball
and then passing it to her fledgling.
He loves watching the birds on his table.
We have a few characters we are getting 
to know very well.

Now it's your turn to share what you are doing.
It doesn't have to be crochet, anything you are making
is perfect.
Please add the pin to your post & check out a couple
of other people that are sharing their work

I've Made Friday Week 157


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

Life is a bit weird at the moment.
It seems to be lots of peaks and troughs
and I really don't know where it's going.
It's quite exciting!
I'm trying to be calm and patient
but if you knew me you would know
that isn't really me.
I like to plan, to know what is going on
and to know what life is going to hold.

Hubby hasn't been able to do much more in the garden
as he has been working a lot.
He is hoping to get a little more done on Saturday.
It's meant to be sunny which will be a bonus.
It's raining on Sunday and he has to work anyway.

Red Monster is growing up so fast everyday.
It's amazing how much he has changed in the last month.
He is so much more independent and if it isn't
raining then he is out in the garden
and we only see him at tea time and bedtime.


As I've had to rest this week
I have been able to get a few things finished.


I've finished 2 baskets now.


I finished designing the owl.
from Xena knits to make him.
It's a handpainted yarn.


I also designed and made myself a bracelet cuff.
I was just in the mood to make something for me.
I love how it turned out and the front edge looks really
good coming out from under a jacket.
I haven't stopped wearing it since I made it :-).

I promised you a review of the next
in the series of the Crochet Murder's.



Dead Men Don't Crochet
by Betty Hetchman

Molly Pink the main character is now becoming
known for her amateur sleuthing.
When yet again she is caught up in another murder
she can't help but get involved.
Her friend is under the spotlight as the possible
murderer and he favorite detective is in charge
of this case, yet again.
She can't stand by and watch an innocent person
be accused.
She has to step in and do her own detective work
to see if she can solve the case.
The story is centered around the crochet group
and the different characters that each play 
their part.
I love the fact that crochet plays such a role
in the story but it's still a good murder mystery as well.
I'm really enjoying the series and have already
ordered the next in the series.
I'd give it a 4 out of 5.
It would be a 5 out of 5 but I prefer the descriptions
of the yarn etc. in the Knitting murder series.

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