What You Doing Wednesday Week 6

I hope your week is going well! 
We have seen some sunshine this week which is always a bonus.
I do love the sun!
But then it disappeared again, hopefully it will return again soon.

There is one thing I want to talk about before Wednesday starts.
I think it's ok to post about the good, the bad and the ugly.
I read so many blogs where people apologize for talking about real things
that aren't happy things.
Do you know I enjoy the real blogs more!
My life isn't perfect and I will never pretend it is.
If someone is going through something I would rather
they talked about it so I could at least reach out
and say something.
I know words in blog land can't always help but at least then they know someone is there.
Us bloggers still live in the real world & it isn't perfect.

That's enough of me ranting.

So what are you making this week.
I've got a number of things on the go.
I am still working on my surprise.
I will hopefully have it finished soon!

It's making progress slowly but surely.

I am also making an alien & UFO for my son.
I was browsing Ravelry & Little Red saw it.
I know I am a softie but it does look cute.
I haven't got very far:

This is the UFO.

Here is what is meant to be look like:

I've made mine with a larger yarn and hook so the spaceship will
turn out bigger. If it is bigger enough I'll make him 2 aliens for it.

I have loads I want to make at the moment.
I just need the time and energy to be able to.

I can't tell you about the book I'm reading at the moment.
I am going to review it but I need to wait till it's published.
It's the first book I've reviewed before being released
and it's very exciting!
I am still in the middle of the 3rd in the Vampire Academy Series
and I'll hopefully have the review soon.
You know it's going to be good. I do love this series!

  1. LOVE the alien! how cute.

    And a baby blanket maybe? love the stitch!

    1. Sorry not right ;-)
      I can't wait to finish both.

  2. The aliens are really cute. :-)
    And I totally agree with your thoughts about talking about the bad too. So that's it, I'm heading back to my knitting. Have to. I wish you a "perfect" week.

    1. Thanks ever so much, hope the knitting is going well!

  3. Ohhhhh the spaceship looks awesome. So cute.

  4. The alien is adorable. Very creative. I didn't take your post as a rant at all, I agree with you 200%. I do feel like I get to know some of my blog mates, and sometimes chatting/blogging about things helps.

    Is your badge what are you doing Wed new? Have I just not seen it before? lol. I'll get it added to my blog shortly. Linky parties are always fun.

    1. I'm glad you agree. I just felt so sorry for the bloggers that had apologized. They had some awful stuff going on and felt guilty for not writing a happy post.
      The pin is newish. it's part of my blog growth. I love linking and apart from Saturday I have available links everyday now :-)

  5. Great alien, and I agree with you about the blog reading. I prefer the ones where the people seem real.

    1. Thanks, hope mine turns out as well. I'm glad you agree! I have my flaws but I like them out there for everyone to see (well apart from my flabby bits but i don't think anyone wants to see them hehehe).

  6. Awesome spaceship pattern - bigger is better, because a ship like that should fit a whole landing party, right?

  7. Oh, my! The alien/UFO is WONDERFUL! I bet it'll be a really fun project to work on!

    1. Little Red is already working out what extra's he wants on his spaceship. Looks like I'm making a computer to go into it. Thanks

  8. That alien ROCKS! I can't wait to make one for my son. Thanks for sharing.

    1. You are more than welcome, hope your son enjoys his as well!

  9. I know some kids on my list that would think that alien and spaceship are cool.

    1. They are something that makes kids smile :-)

  10. Your ufo is so cute. I agree that the best is when bloggers are true to who they really are. I connect more with them when they tell it how it is. Thanks so much for sharing at Whimsy Wednesdays.

    1. Thank you ever so much. it makes such a difference to see more of the whole person.


I hope you enjoy the blog!
Thank you ever so much for commenting!
I love reading everything you put and I will try and reply but it just depends on my health.
Thanks Sue
