I've Made Friday Week 14

Wow the end of the working week already!
I hope you have had a really good week.

Little Red wants to make a volcano this weekend
so we are looking forward to having
lots of fun making lots of mess :-)

Little Red has been working really hard
at his colouring this week.
I am so proud of how he is doing

He also made his fathers day card at grannies

We have also made a pirate hook from one
of his make it books:

He wants to make more from this book so look
out for more pirate things coming.
Little Red loves this book
because there are lots of things we can make together
and he loves being a pirate

Now onto what I've been making this week:

I made my dad a cleric for a little silly fathers day present.
I got him an amazon voucher as well but I wanted something to give him.
My dad is a trained reader at church so I thought it was
something he would like.
This pattern is from:

I also made some bunting
for our living room:

I got the free pattern from:
It's a really easy pattern to follow and I hope you agree
it turned out really well.

I have read a few books this week:

Accidentally married to...... a Vampire
by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
I love the way Mimi writes!
The story has twists and turns all the way through.
She has a fantastic use of sarcasm!
The story is about a normal girl about to start her life in the world
but what she doesn't know is she is destined to be the true love
of a Vampire.
Niccolo is a Vampire looking for an escape from his queen.
A God Cemil gives him an out but is it that simple.
There are steamy scenes in this book so be warned ;-)
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend
it as a really good read.
I give this book 4 out of 5

The next book I read is a short story:
Madly (Book 1) (Madly Series)
by M.Leighton

This is the first book in the series
and is setting the scene for the rest.
It is only short to give you a taster of what is to come.
Madly seems a normal girl to her fellow students on land
but she is really a Mer princess.
Her world is turned upside down
when there is a prison escape from Atlas.
This book is a good set-up for the series
and keeps you wanting to read more.
It's gives you an opportunity to meet the characters
and learn how the story is unfolding.
I enjoyed this book and am looking forward
to reading the 2nd in the series.
I give this book 3 out of 5.

The last book I have finished is:
2nd Chance by James Patterson
This is the 2nd book in the
Women's Murder Club
DI Lyndsay Boxer is called to the scene
of a shooting at a church where one girl
has been shot and killed.
The bug question to answer is was the girl
shot randomly or was she targeted?
I really enjoy the twists in these books and love the characters.
The women are human and have their own flaws but
when they work together they are unstoppable.
They get to the bottom of any case using each of their own know how.
This story was just as good as the 1st and will
be reading more!
My only negative is the ending! For some reason
at the end the author went into a baseball player
and I think it spoils the ending.
Apart from that I would recommend this
book if you like a good murder and cop story.
I give this book 4 out of 5

Now what have you been making this week?

 I hope you have a fantastic weekend


  1. WOW, I'm pretty excited, don't think I've managed to be the first on your linky love before. Maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket? lol. Love the bunting, looks like you're gearing up for The 4th of July. Cute little cleric. Am soooooooooo glad the weeks almost over, it's been a wild one and I'm tired.

    1. Congrats on being first! Thanks. What are you making? Hope the weekend is a lot better!

  2. Those are great projects.
    I love when my kids make me stuff.

    1. Thanks. I just wanted to make him a little something so there was some effort in his present. Vouchers just feel a little too impersonal to be given on their own.

  3. Cute little cleric. I'm like you, I always want a little something extra to wrap up with it. Doesn't feel as fun or as surprising without!

    1. Thanks. It just makes it a little more personal. I feel guilty if I just give a voucher.

  4. Little Red did a great job with his crafts! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
    The cleric is creepy cute, just like the book says :-)
    Have a great weekend!

    1. He is getting better. I love it when he does something himself and sees what he can achieve.
      I really love the creepy cute book. From the basic design you can make so many different characters. I think I'm going to make myself a vampire.
      Have a fantastic weekend!

  5. Me again. I saw this tutorial over on and thought of Little Red; today's post shows how to make a pirate telescope out of a pool noodle.

    1. Wow thanks, he would love to make one of them!

  6. Nice amigurumi! I hope your dad likes it.

  7. I've had that creepy crochet book for ages but had almost forgotten about it until I saw your project. Great cleric and fab bunting.

    1. You'll have to get it out again and make one of them. Which is your favorite?
      Thanks ever so much!

    2. You know I think I will get it out, and I'll add completing at least one of the projects to my Year Of Projects list. Thanks for the idea.

    3. I'll look forward to seeing it :-)

  8. Hey Susan,
    Thanks for the link up...I have one on the Weekend for people to link up and share there creations. You'll have to stop by sometime.
