I've Made Friday Week 155

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

It is a beautiful sunny day in the UK.
Everyone is smiling and everything seems so much better.

I was set-up outside to write this post
but I couldn't get a wi-fi signal :-(.
All that effort and hubby setting things up for me.

We got the paddling pool out for Red Monster.
We set it for him whilst he was at school yesterday
and surprised him.

I haven't taken any pictures yet
but I'll hopefully have some for next week.
Hubby has been working in the front and back garden.
They are looking so much better.
There is still a lot of work to do but each
time he goes out there you can tell the difference.

I made a little dormouse this week.
I'm not sure he is good enough.
It's for my neice's Alice in Wonderland Hat.

He is meant to sit in the cup on top of the hat.
My mum made the hat for her.

I also made another monster foot.
I've made four now which means there is enough for the benches
to be decorated.

I have read a book this week :-)

Hooked on Murder
by Betty Hetchman

As you may or may not of guessed,
this is a murder mystery set around a crochet group.
The main character Molly Pink is a widow, her sons have
grown up and she is now working in a book store
arranging events and book signings etc.
At the start of the book she doesn't crochet
but has arranged for a local crochet group to meet
at the book store.
One of the members left behind some crochet hooks
so she decides to drop them off.
She walks in and finds her dead but as she screams
and policeman walks in and finds her over the victim.
She becomes there first suspect.
Her boyfriend is a policeman so has to excuse himself
from the case but his collegue (who also has
a crush on him) runs the investigation.
She wants Molly to be guilty.
During the story Molly learns to crochet as the group
is in a panic to complete a blanket for charity
and with one member (Ellen who ran the group)
not being with them anymore they are really behind.
As Molly is the number one suspect she decides to
do a little of digging for herself
and see if she can find the murderer.
Overall I enjoyed the book but I didn't find
the descriptive language as enjoyable as the
knitting series of murder mysteries.
I did enjoy it and I love that crochet is involved in the story.
I will carry on reading more in the series.
Infact I've already started dead men don't crochet :-)
