The 52 Marvellous Makes Madness Challenge - Weeks 3 and 4!

This challenge is such a good idea.  I'm really enjoying 'having' to make something every week.  My Week 3 make was something I bake often but it deserves a place for the sheer pleasure it brings in the making/eating/devouring of them.  They are from the delicious Hummingbird Bakery Book and are moistly moreish!  I get to use my KitchenAid too, *sigh*.

Week 4 brought these and...

... it's what I made whist holidaying on the canals of England and Wales therefore my make of that week.  I've still got lots to do!  I am using  Rico Creative Cotton; colours inspired by the Gustav Klimt canvas we have in our bedroom.  I love the Pistachio green!  
Picture me sat at the front of the narrow boat hooking away in between locks and long gazes at firey coloured butterflies and the dazzling blues of dragonflies.  
In the evenings, awaiting a delicious dinner courtesy of my Mother-in-law, my hook was replaced by this for more gazing...

...bliss!!  I could spend a lot of time on a narrow boat.  My gypsy soul yearns for it now I've had a taste of it.  Shame it's so expensive...!

  2. That's quite a pile of granny squares!

    Sounds like you had a lovely relaxing holiday. Are your teeth better too?

  3. Victoria, yes my teeth are better! The pain and discomfort only lasts a few days I am relieved to say. I know it's coming after each visit but I forget how all consuming the pain is. Thank goodness it doesn't last long. xx
    Helen, that view was my holiday! xx

  4. Glad you had a wonderful holiday. The canals always look so peaceful........... The crochet is looking very good too.

  5. What a busy bee you have been! I LOVE chocolate muffins...but I have had to wean myself off them...I go a bit mad with them! Your pile of granny squares is looking very yummy and I LOVE that pic of you in the canal boat! very heavenly! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  6. Sounds like you had a great time.I would love to go on a narrow boat.

  7. That's why we get on, you're a girl after my own heart ... drifting + hooking + imbibing red wine + m-in-law cooking supper = HEAVEN!

Had to put the annoying word verification back on as the spam was getting silly. Forgive me! Ali
