Crochet


I've been so busy starting up my Etsy shop and design my new header, that I had only little time to get some crochet going. I made some small projects for the shop, but they were mostly patterns I already knew and it gets boring to make 6 of the same... Time to start something new!


I made these pot cozies last week, while lying in bed with the flue. I love how they brighten up my boring pots! They feel like spring...


Got a new flower square pattern going. I got the inspiration of the white flowers from Dada's Place. I really love her version of my flower square III pattern. I even tried it myself with a new yarn and very different colors than which I usually use, as you can see on the pic beneath. 


Anywho, busy, busy, as always. The shop is doing well. It got lots of attention and I wanted to thank you all for your sweet and encouraging comments! Sandra from Refelctions and Nature asked me if I was planning on selling some patterns too. I have been thinking about that for months. I decided to do it. (Don't worry, there still will be free patterns as well!). The flower coasters will be in my shop, hopefully next week. I still have to figure out how that works... Does any of you know of good chart drawing software??

Have a challenging thursday!

  2. Such gorgeous little cheerful flowers to make pot cosies with!
    As for a good chart drawing software, I remember seeing something called "Corel draw" it's on a blog here: http://www.lemondedesucrette.com/2011/09/14/mosaic-cushion/ I hope this is helpful!
    Wishing you lots of fun pattern writing time! Looking forward to seeing your patterns and I was so pleased to hear that your Etsy shop is getting lots of attention!

  6. Loving all your pretty colours. Yes setting up an etsy shop is so time consuming, and to be honest I have become a little slack with mine and need to spend a little time on it. Goodluck with it all xoxo

    1. Thanks for the compliment. The cotton is from the brand Essentials Cotton Soft. I must disappoint you on the yellow though. I bought that in Thailand 2 years ago, and I don't know a substitute. It's brandless. Good luck on finding the right colors!

    1. Hi Carla, I normally don't use DK Essentials and I never write down numbers I'm afraid. You can find more information about yarn under the YARN label in my sidebar. Have fun and good luck!
