The MAY Made It Challenge – Butterflies, Ufo’s, Roses and Mushrooms

Happy Mother’s Day! (i know it’s not M’sD everywhere in the world, but still) I’ve seen many fab photos and captions over the last couple of days but this one is by far my favourite…


Says it all, doesn’t it!!!

I’ve just had the most wonderful day with my folks, my hubby and kids but wishing we could have added a few more absent family members to the day. It’s so sad when half of your family live on the opposite hemisphere…sigh. Even so, we had a lovely lazy lunch and I have just about enough energy for this post heehee!

But with so many wonderful entries in the challenge so far, I’d better get on with introducing them to you – here are the next four!


Easter Butterflies by Rainbow Junkie

I am delighted to see another beautiful Easter tree by the talented and ridiculously creative Jane from Rainbow Junkie.  If you click on the pic, you will see her previous one which was adorned by an assortment of crocheted eggs, crosses, flowers and, or course,  a sweet little bunny. These rainbow butterflies are absolutely beautiful and so delicately made – and yes, there’s a link to the pattern too YAY!


“Made with Love and Yarn” by Bev Barret

This cosy rosy baby blanket was made by one of my Woolhogs Facebook page members, Bev Barret – one that she made and DESIGNED herself!!! When I asked Bev to tell me a little more about how she made it, she described it as  “made with love and yarn” . I love that answer – pretty much sums up how most of our yarny creations born are born.  Stunning Bev, we want more!!!


UFO#4 by YarnChick40

Now what self respecting,  little-matchy-matchy-crazy-cat-lady/hooker-corner-maker wouldn’t need some seriously cool matchy-matchy illumination hmmmm??? Ta-Dah! And another wonderfully blue-black-and-white signature piece (titled UFO#4 hahahah, she cracks me up) from our very own YarnChick40!


Funky Foam and Felt Mushroom Bobbin Saver by SquareBird

YAY, please welcome May’s first newcomer to the challenge *rubs hands gleefully* Hello to SquareBird 201 of SquareBird Craft A Day who has amazingly challenged herself to creating…yes, as her blog name clearly suggests,  a craft A DAY for 2014!  WOW…do yourself a favour and pop over for a browse around. There is soooo much to see your to-do-lists are going to take a beating! How great is this Funky Foam And Felt Mushroom Bobbin Saver!!

That’s all for tonight, be back soon

Love Maryanne
