The 52 Marvellous Makes Madness Challenge - Weeks 35 - 40!

Hello and welcome to the next batch of marvellous makes...

Week 35

Butterfly and bunny key rings.
Made for a schoolfriend of Eldest Biscuit to take along to her Saturday night party.  Can't remember the last time I was invited to a party on a Saturday night!!
Made up from felt, fabric and buttons from their respective stashes.  A bit of making fun!

 Week 36

Owl egg cosy.
Made from a tutorial from LucyKate for one of the Nursery Nurses where I help out (pretend I have a career as a Librarian) of a Wednesday morn.  Last year I made her an owl brooch for her birthday not knowing she has collected owly things for years and years so this year when I spotted this cosy I knew who would love one.  

Week 37

I make bread often but I thought homemade bread deserves to be in this as it is indeed a marvellous thing to make.  Have tried many different recipes but always come back to Jamie O.

Week 38

Bunny egg cosy.
Made from a Little Cotton Rabbits pattern.  Made for youngest Biscuit's teacher at Easter.  Eldest Biscuit didn't agree that his [gorgeous, young] male teacher would want one.  Made with various 4 ply from my wool stash.

 Weeks 39 and 40

Chocolate cake - again and again.  
 Seeing how my craft making mojo was being a fickle friend...
 Made as week 39 only to be required the next week very last minute for a work friend of Mr Biscuit.  I didn't take any photos of the second one, last minute like I said, so am making up for it by the above photo compilation extravaganza.

Only 16 makes left!  

Have a lovely weekend peeps and if praying to a God of Weather would help, please let this incessant rain stop and let there be sun.  I like a bit of rain but c'mon!!!

edit  3pm  -it has rained here for the last two weeks.  Not all day but enough to make hanging out washing risky and a nice seat out all but impossible.  Oh and it's been cold....



  1. The keyrings are so very cute as is the owl cosy. You have been busy! Loving that there is always chocolate cake at your house!!! x

  2. MmmmMmmmmmm chocolate cake. Looks absolutely deeeeeeelish!

    Loving the wee keyrings, especially the bunny. Gooooooorgeous fabric twinks.

    What a busy buzzing bee you are. Good work. Loves Ionwen X

  3. I'm drooling over that chocolate cake - looks delicious. Cute owl too, I know someone who would love one - best get onto it!

    Please, please send the rain down here - we are desperate for some, my poor allotment is wilting :(

  4. You have rain? Send it my way, we have very severe drought - I'm longing for a long wet spell to revive my poor garden!

  5. Colette, I loved making it. I want one for me now...x


I love to hear from all you interesting folks out there so don't be shy.
Had to put the annoying word verification back on as the spam was getting silly. Forgive me! Ali
