I've Made Friday Week 52

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

Little Red & hubby are off at the moment
but I'll tell you more about that when everything is back to normal.

I decided to make a couple of things
for Easter.

I made a little Easter Egg garland
using a free pattern from Lacy Crochet.
and joining them with a chain.

A little Lamb
Using the free spring squishies pattern
by Josephine Wu
This is a free download from Ravelry
and you get the patterns for a chick, duck, lamb & rabbit:
This was a fantastic and easy pattern to follow.
I think they are also just soooo cute!

I loved following this free pattern
from Lani Herschensohn

Each eggshell has a top and bottom and in each is a chick
I made quite a few in different colours

Then I made up a basket for them to fit in.

But if you've got the eggs and you've got the basket
you need a chicken to sit on them:
The chicken isn't as pretty as the pattern
that I followed but I just wanted a hollow
chicken that the egg could fit in.
This is the free cosy set:
I changed the legs and didn't make the egg cosy inside them
as I was making it for Little Red to Play with.

Wow isn't this sheep hat fantastic!
and it's a free pattern as well
I loved the way she uses a treble crochet with a sc to make the bobbly effect.
I loved making this hat!

I also made a broach for me.
I purchased this pattern
It's for a poppy hat but I have just made the poppy itself
Poppy Flower Girls Hat  age 0-3 & 3-6 months 6 -12 1 -3 years crochet Pattern
I love the effect of the big poppy.
It makes a real statement.

Little Red asked if I could make him a scarf to match
his Turtle hat.
and you know I can't resist
making things for Little Red.

As you know I have been following the Online Tunisian Crochet Class
at Craftsy
This is the first washcloth I made

In the next part of the course you learn how to use 3 colours:
I haven't block it yet but I think you'll agree it's very effective.
I just couldn't believe how easy it was to work with 3 colours.
Infact it was easier using the 3 colours than using one.

I listened to:

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett

This is a free audio book from Books Should Be Free
(you can listen online, download the audio or the book itself)

Wow I loved this book!
The author also wrote The Secret Garden.
The book is based around a young girl called Sara.
At 7 years old she is brought to London from India by her father.
She is brought to Miss Minchin’s London school
where she has her own bedroom and sitting room
and has a blessed life due to her fathers riches.
Her father was devoted to her and has left her there 
reluctantly as he knows she needs schooling.
During her time in school she is a perfect pupil.
Then her father dies penniless. Things take a drastic turn
and Miss Minchin keeps her as a slave and works her to the bone.
For the rest of the story you'll have to read the book ;-)
Sara it such a beautiful child in looks and in her heart.
It's a very touching innocent story that is written beautifully!
I would give this book 5 out of 5

Now it's your turn
It doesn't have to be crocheting
