New Flower Square


Those of you who follow me on Instagram already know I've designed a new grannysquare. Today I made a chart pattern for you guys to use. I plan to make a tutorial next week. My first after a looooooong time. Exciting!!


I've loved making these squares. They are so bright and colorful and I love how they make me feel while making them.


My favorite shade of pink is no longer available and I must admit, that kind of made me angry at first. How could they??? But than I started using the new pink, a little brighter, a little more 'in your face' and I kinda got used to it. It really pops out, don't you think?


For those of you who comment on my blog, I love you for it, but I have a problem with opening/reading them. It kind of sucks, because I love to communicate with you and I so appreciate your involvement. Therefor, if you feel the need to respond, please do it on Instagram (JennPoort). It's also possible to comment through Bloglovin'.  I'll make sure to get back to you there!


Hope you enjoy the chart! Have fun!!

Hello Agian...


Hello lovelies! It's been a while. Almost 4 years...



I've missed this blog for a long time. And kept wondering if I should start again and go on where I left it. I haven't been very decisive about it.



I started posting pictures on Instagram and, although I like it, I miss writing and making a story of my projects. I actually love the process of it and to share it with other crochet enthusiasts.



Still not sure what it will become, this blog,  but just thought I'd share some pictures with you of what I've been doing these last few weeks.


Enjoy and have a lovely day!



PS. You can find me on Instagram under JennPoort.

Color 'n Cream Crochet 2014


I wanted to take some time to look back at my great year of 2014 already. Oh, what a lovely year it was!!!


I have only warm memories of all the nice people I met, through my blog and my visit to Sweden. All of you who left me those nice comments to make me feel better and inspired. I really LOVE this place! THANK YOU for giving me so much good vibrations! I appreciate it very much!


I hope to have brought some happy moments to you with my colorful happy work and I wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and an even HAPPIER 2015! (I know it's early, but because I'm not sure if I am able to post before the end of the year, I just wanted to have said it!)

Crochet Cushion Color Bomb


First of all, Thanks to you all for all the nice and caring comments on my last post. I really appreciate it!

I've been working on some very happy Color Bomb Projects. This is one of them. And how happy it turned out!!


As you all know, I love to work with many colors. I love to make them work together. I really love the results of this effort. I used my own Circle In Square Pattern (free tutorial).


The front crochet panel is sewn onto a fabric base cushion cover with zipper. Don't you love the fabric of the back? It's so fresh and lovely.


I like the edging too. It's very simple, like most of the edgings I use. But it makes the colors pop and it compliments the cushion.


This Colorful Crochet Cushion Cover  is for sale in the Color 'n Cream Shop. I wish you all a very happy monday!

Hello Again


Hello, my dear readers. I'm back! As you might have noticed, I've been absent these last few weeks. Not because of a holiday (sadly) but because I had a nervous breakdown 3 weeks ago and was lying in bed all this time, trying to relax as much as possible...


I have ME and although I have been doing really well the last year, I wasn't careful enough about my diet and so I kind of relapsed. Luckily, I have a very helpful and caring man, who is very capable of taking over everything when this happens and our parents (in law) are always happy to take care of the kids. Everybody was very willing to pitch in and that made me realize how lucky we are.


So, I'm taking it SLOW, at least as slow as I allow myself to go. I need to take better care of myself and that will have consequences for Color 'n Cream. I will be making less tutorials for now and probably post a little less frequent than I used to.


This is our dog, Billy, by the way. Ain't she sweet when she's relaxing??!! A lot of us could learn from her. I guess I'm not the only one always running and stressing about unimportant stuff... Or am I??


The pictures show you our living room. I've been thrifting a lot lately, sometimes with my new friend Miranda (MierPapier). I actually went to visit her yesterday and it gave me soo much energy. It's so nice to find someone you can relate to so easily. And I got a preview of some of her new designs... They are wonderful!


Anywho, next week I'm going to the KreaDoe Beurs with my mom. Looking forward to that. It's kind of our annual field trip.



The stars in the picture are a new project. It's a real nice christmas project. And I'm actually learning the technique of stiffening my crochet! Always nice to learn some new techniques.


And this is something I'm working on now. It's going to be a garland. Don't you just love all the colorful flowers? They tend to get me through the day and keep me busy while I'm relaxing...


Have a lovely weekend!
