I've Made Friday Week 5

Well another working week over.
The weekend beginnings :-)
I hope you are all enjoying the new journey we are on.
I'm loving connecting to you all.

This week I've been making Nelson The Owl
I got this pattern from:
This is what he should look like:

Now in this my Nelson:

Honestly I wouldn't make another one.
There isn't anything wrong with the pattern.
I'm just a lazy crocheter & I hate changing yarn colour all the time.
I also had to concentrate the whole time so that I remembered
to crochet in the back loop.
The amount of times I had to frog frustrated me.
That was my fault not the patterns.
I think in the future I may re-stuff him.
The stuffing I have isn't a good quality and it makes a big difference.
A lot better ones have been made than mine.
I am sure Little Red will love him :-)
It's a good pattern to follow
& it does look good when it's finished.

This week I have been reading:
Only the Innocent By Rachel Abbot.

I loved this book!!!!!
I'm only just getting back into reading & i can't always manage it
but this book was really enjoyable.
The story is based around DCI Tom Douglas
a man that gets found dead in suspicious circumstances.
As the story moves along new characters are brought in
and new twists to the story.
If you love a good murder mystery you'll love this book.
I did find a few parts of the story obvious but
the little twists & turns helped balance that out.
I really enjoyed the different personalities and the reasons
why they became who they were.
I would of liked to know a little more about a few
of the characters and what was happening to them but
I also think the path the story followed wouldn't of been the same if they had.

I'm joining in with Friendship Friday.
This week's question is:
Question Of The Week
What are you passionate about?
Share what inspires and moves you!
I am passionate about:
My Family

The world inspires me but also the way my son looks at the world.
Seeing the way a child sees the world opens new things that you wouldn't normally notice.
