I've Made Friday Week 9

Hello Everyone.
I hope your week is going well!

I'm having a bit of chill out time and working on my
African Flower Blanket.

Don't forget to enter:
Day One Day Two

Now it's time for you to see what I've been making.
I made a number of gifts for my best friend
Melissa at Lazy Daisy
She has now received them so I can show you what I made her :-)

I won a giveaway of Melissa's & she
bought me loads of pressies for my birthday
and surprised me with them.
I decided that I would thank her by making her some things.

I made her a daisy bookmark using
my needle felting.

A Crochet Daisy Bookmark

A yarn bag - this is the smaller version of the surprise one I'm making.

The yarn bag holds one 100g ball of yarn and your hook

A blue bag (Melissa's favorite colour) with a daisy

A daisy Chain, you can take each daisy off
& add or remove more depending if you
want a bracelet or necklace or headband

One of the daisy's on it's own

A couple of stitch markers

A hook with a fimo handle.

This week I have also finished
Little Red's chipmunk

I also had to make him a red top like Alvin's.
All Little Red keeps shouting round the house
is Alvin.

I have read a fantastic book this week:


The story starts with Prince Damien, 
the spoiled youngest son of the king of Cardenas.
His world is turned upside down when a Gypsy Dancer, 
Esmeralda comes into his life.
This is a period drama full of murder, intrigue, romance & fantastic twists and turns in life.
If you love a good romance you will love this book.
I was hooked from the start!
I would recommend this book to everyone!
It's a must read.
I would give it 5 out of 5

  1. Wowza! You made some amazing gifts for her. I'm not sure which I like the best. I'm partial to the chipmunk because they are super adorable but really love the daisy chain. Beautiful work!

  2. I love the flowers so pretty.

  3. Congrats on your winning, that's always fun. The yarn bag is really cute.

  4. Thank you dear friend for all of those wonderful goodies!! I love them all. Boo found my yarn bag last night and was running around showing it off to everyone. He loves pretty things.

    1. I'm glad you like them! Brett has good taste :-)
