My creative space for this week is a granny round cushion…

I finished already the pink garden cushion (I’ll show it to you tomorrow) and it’s looking great…

So, I’m making now this…

…to become a round cuhion…

Hope everything is going well for you! For me, no time for real-crochet-joy but I’m trying my best to do some, at night, after they sleep… 🙂

See you tomorrow for my pink garden cushion!

Green garden cushion!


Hope you’ve had an excellent week end,

Yesterday I was crocheting the final border of my green garden cushion, the one I began last week…

Here it is in all its glory:)

It is 40x40cm,

made with 16 squares…

I used the left overs from the Stylecraft special DK yarns from my previous 3 blankets…

You can find  the pattern of the square here.

Do you love it?

Now I’m making a second cushion, a pink one…

I’ll post less during these two weeks because my children are at home and we are preparing everything  before the beginning of  school…

So, I’ll somehow miss you, and miss my crochet 🙂

Have a beautiful week everyone!

Hello my friend,

Here is the pattern of the stuffed heart with dc (better than the one with tr because it has less holes:))

The crocheting method is the same as for the heart made with tr:

Begin making the first hump of the heart : the bump A:

1st round: 8dc

round 2to round 6: 16dc

You’ve already done the first bump which we are going to call bumpA

You have now to do another same bump (exactly the same as A) made with 6 rounds that we are going to call bump B.

round 7: You have to join together A and B with 3 dc and continue making the round with 28dc

Now you have A and B joined together with the 7th round …

continue your heart like this:

round 8: 28dc

round 9: 19dc (1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1 dc, 2-st dc decrease…etc to have a total of 19dc)

round 10: 19dc same as round 9

round11: 13dc (1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1 dc, 2-st dc decrease…etc to have a total of 19dc)

round 12: 13dc same as round11

round 13: 9dc (1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1dc, 2-st dc decrease, 1 dc, 2-st dc decrease…etc to have a total of 9dc)

round 14: 4dc (2-st dc decrease, 2-st dc decrease etc)

That’s it my lovelies! Very simple you’ll see when you’ll try it 🙂

This simple heart makes a very nice Christmas tree decoration. And it is lovely also in a closet if stuffed with lavender:)

I would love to see some of your hearts made from this pattern, I’ll be very happy!

Have a perfect week end!

My creative space today is a cushion I’m making with the left over yarns from my two previous blankets (Country flowers and Zygzagy)

I love making cushions and I love living in a home full of colorful cushions, cushions everywhere… on the floor…on the beds…on the sofas…in the kitchen…in the garden etc…This is my dreams house 🙂

So, now I am making a green garden cushion (you can find the pattern here)…I have in mind to make a green, a white and a pink one… 😉

Have a colorful day!

Playing with dcs…

Good morning ,

I am waiting for the arrival of 40 yarns straight from the UK …I have in mind to make a very big blanket, big enough to cover all our double sized bed…yaaay I don’t know if I will be patient enough to finish this kind of big project…we will see…

It takes too long to come all the way from the UK to Lebanon, so, I’ve been playing theses two past days with the left over yarns from the cotton ones I used to remake the two leather stools (yes the number 2 is done:) I’ll show it to you very soon, did not take any pics yet)

It’s been a while since I did crochet anything with just dcs…but I learned today that I do not love this kind of crochet projects… No, I don’t like to make 3D objects or amigurumi things…That was the conclusion of the day 🙂

Sorry if I talked too much, lets have some pics…

I made a “doudou” , a kind of doggy, for my niece Clara who is 5 months old:)…and then I tried a Christmas ball for the Christmas tree but that was a first trial, not too good as you’ll notice :S:S

and finally, I crocheted a 3D heart (a new pattern I made) using dc as I noticed the 3D one crocheted with tr have some holes in it and was not too perfect as a heart should be… (If anyone is interested in the pattern of this heart, let me know and I’ll be glad to post it:))

So, what do you think?

Uuuuuf that was a very long post…

I am practicing my English thanks to you dear readers :):)

I have now to leave you and wish you a wonderful day full of beautiful moments…

Good morning to you my friend,

Today is a big day! I finished my 3D Flower Blanket and I am very proud of the result! Christina my daughter loved it! She said that it is like a garden in her room and these sweet-5 years old-words make my heart very very happy 🙂

Of course I’m gonna show you…yalla 🙂

The blanket is made with 42 squares (6×7) and 7 different colors and every square is one of a kind as you can not find two identical squares…

It measures 115×100 cm and the size is ideal for a 5 years girl who wants to put it on her while watching TV during the cold winter nights…

The Yarn used is: Stylecraft special DK

The colors are: Aster 1003, Sherbet 1034, Fondant 1241, Meadow 1065, Lipstick 1246, Saffron 1081 and White

Ordered from this shop.

The crochet hook is a 4mm 🙂

I’ve joined together the squares with a white line of dc.and I made another white line of dc before making the final border in red.

You can find the pattern of the square here.

This blanket was a pure pleasure to crochet…

…hope you like it !

Have a beautiful week!

Big big kisses!
