FO Friday - Birthday Surprises

March is full of birthdays it seems.  Last week Boy and I went to a friend's birthday party so I decided to make him a football like the Celtic one I made in December but in red and white (because he supports the opposite team to the one my Dad does).

He really liked it and I think he'll definitely enjoy kicking it around his house with his housemates.  It's based on my Mum's pattern for a patchwork ball.

While I'm on the subject of my Mum it's her birthday today so why not pop over to her blog and say Happy Birthday to her!

Here is the card I made for her:

The crocheted part is from her own Compass Rose Earring pattern and she recognised it straight away.

And, finally, I made her some yellow, pink and sparkly bracelets using this great free pattern: Beaded Bracelet with Leather Weave by Fatima Lasay (or can be found here)

Anyways just one more birthday to make things for then I can get back to all of my other projects.


  1. Thank you for the lovely things you made for my birthday - you make me so proud.

  2. Your Mom looked like she had a lovely Birthday :) Very thoughtful gifts :)
