I've Made Friday Week 139

Good Morning everyone!
I hope your week is going well.
I hope you are looking forward to the weekend.

I've had the most amazing week
even though I shouldn't of.

Little Red is finally better and so is hubby.
And yes you've guessed it I'm not ill.
It's the first time in ages that I've been the last to fall.
In a lot of ways I'm really proud.
I have been dealing with stress a lot better
(or I've avoided stressful situations)
and it's had a huge affect on the amount of
infections I catch.
It hasn't made a huge impact on everything else
(cfs, fibro, etc),
but I'm looking on the positives this week.
The cold has knocked me for six
so I'm resting a lot and not sleeping a lot.
Who knew you could blow your nose so many times.

Little Red is at Granny and Grandad's at the moment.
He is going to a panto tonight with them.
It's cast is mostly my family on my mums side.
He comes back tomorrow so I'm going to make
the most of me time and watch loads of stuff I like.
That's the only thing with being into true murders etc.
You can't watch them with little people around.

I've made quite a bit this week with being ill.

I cross stitch an R for Little Red.
I wanted to put a black edging round the R 
but Little Red said it was perfect just the way it was.

I made a needle case for me :-).
My sewing is getting a bit better each time I do it.
I'm hopefully going to have a tutorial for you in the next
couple of days.
You can choose your own shape for the cut-out.
A rabbit or egg would be perfect as an Easter present.

I finished my other mitten.
Note to self; Don't wear one before the other one is finished.
They look totally different sizes as one has been worn quite
a bit already.
I made the pattern up myself but I'm not quite happy with the shaping.

I made another hat from the #free Divine Hat #crochet pattern.
I made this one in a smaller size for my mum.
It's made with Red Heart Unforgettable yarn in Dragonfly.
I love the colours in this yarn!

I've also made a flower for my hat

I made it using the #free Lovely Layers Flower #crochet pattern
It was quite easy to make and it's really effective.
I've just got to choose a button to go in the middle.

I can't remember whether I've shown you this or not
but this is a bee hive hat that I've designed.
I'm also hoping to have the pattern for you in the next
couple of days. It's super easy to make and with the super chunky yarn
it's super fast to make.

I'm afraid I haven't got a book to review for you today.
I'm struggling to concentrate on reading.
I'll hopefully have one for you next week :-).
