I've Made Friday Week 59

Good Morning Everyone.
I hope you are all having a good week
and are looking forward to the weekend.

The weather isn't very nice at the moment
so it's a time to curl up inside and crochet.

I've managed to do my back in.
I don't know how but my lower back is very sore.
I'm sure it will be fine soon.

I've managed to finish one project
and am making good progress on the others.

 Isn't he just so cute!
I purchased this pattern from Mel's Daisy Patch.
This Little Piggy Wants To Be A Razorback

We have done some baking.
Little Red is really fussy
and we are trying to find ways to get
extra fruit and veg in him.
So I first try was Courgette (zucchini) muffins.
They are a huge success!!
They taste fantastic and he doesn't know they
are full of veg.

We've also made some automata
The first was for my mother-in-laws birthday
and I forgot to take a picture of it. 
Here is what we made.
It's from the book:

Paper Automata

We also made:
A barking dog and pecking chicken.
They are from:
Amazing Paper Pets
This book is fantastic.
The parts are already but you just need to pop them out.
They are quite easy to make and the work really well.

I read (listened to):
Lady Susan by Jane Austen
It actually shocked me quite a bit.
The thinking of the area really opens your eyes
to how naive women were at the time.
It was also shocking how one person can be so horrible
and have such an affect on so many people.
The book is a collation of letters
between a group of people.
They all write about the selfish behavior of Lady Susan 
as she engages in affairs and searches for 
suitable husbands for herself and her young daughter.
I wouldn't say I really enjoyed the book
but it was an interesting read.
I give the book 3 out 5.

Now it's your turn
It doesn't have to be crocheting
anything you've made is more than welcome!
Please try and visit at least 2 other sites
to see what other people have been making.
