Follow-up Friday – The “Tunisian Rose” Cushion

Yesterday my CraftKitchen project for the month of June came online. It’s a real fun recycle project with an old pair of jeans, and I’ll happily share a full Follow-up Friday post with you on it (plus the tutorial in English) next Friday. In case you… read more

“Bobble Square”-hook case and cushion

This is probably not the first time you’re reading here about my crafty fears! The first one I overcame about a year ago, when I took lessons, and actually mastered the art of sock knitting. However ridiculous this may sound: it’s something that to this… read more

Follow-up Friday – Diamonds Cushion Cover

Triangle cushion covers

Writing this blog post made me realize I have somewhat of a fascination with geometric crochet. I’ve noticed I like all crochet made with graphic shapes …. For instance this gorgeous “Isometric Blanket” by Solveig, or the beautiful “Harlequin Blanket” by Woodwoodstool (here‘s another one,… read more

More than a Granny – Cushion Cover

It may sound odd – and hopefully a bit familiar – but when I crochet there are times when I feel like a sculptor……. Do you ever feel like that too? However when making this cushion cover I felt more like a cook. Just like… read more

The “I Love Holland”-cushion

The first grandchild/niece/cousin on my husband’s side of the family is getting married. She was born in The Netherlands, but moved to Canada when she was 8 or 9 years old. Unfortunately we do not see her and the rest of her lovely family a… read more
