I've made Friday week 7

Well the Weekend is arriving :-)
& that means it's time to show you what I've been making.


This week has been full of ups and downs.
Little Red was ill at the beginning of the week.
This meant being up in the middle of the night.
The next 3 days were fun filled CFS days
but it's easing slightly now.

I of course finished making my rose:

And I've been making a UFO for Little Red
but it isn't quite finished yet.
If I finish it this afternoon I might
put a small post out.
If I don't you'll have to come back next week to see what it looks like ;-)

This week I read:
His Devious Angel by
Mimi Barbour
  

I was supplied an ebook copy by
Mimi to review but all the comments expressed
are purely my own!

Wow what a fantastic feel good book! If you love tongue-in-cheek paranormal romances, you'll love this story.
I loved the characters and how as the book progressed their lives intertwined. The main two characters Liam and Sadie have their issues. As the story progresses you can see and feel them changing.  Each character that comes into the book has a different effect on them. The angel character was aloof in some ways but paid an integral part to the story.  It was a book that had twists and turns but everything turned out brilliantly in the end and made you feel good! 

I gave this book 4 out of 5

Before we start linking up I thought I would also

  1. Why do I always think those roses are difficult to make? I'll have to check out that book. Thanks for the suggestion.

    1. I've found some of them really hard. I struggled with the Mollie makes ones. This pattern was the most straight forward I have found.

  5. If I don't get to email you today I'm sorry. The internet is playing up as they are making amendments ready for an upgrade. I'm also not very well so going to give up on the computer before I get mad. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
