WOYWW 221

28.08.13Good morning and welcome to my workdesk. I have been busy this week with a couple of things. The first I have to show you is the button cushion I am making for my sisters step-grandson Hayden. He has wanted one ever since he saw Sophia’s birthday cushion.

If you look carefully, in the box at the back you can see the little gingerbread men left over from my BtCR cards this month if you’re making Christmas cards please come and join my Beat the Christmas Rush linky :o) 28.08.13 2

For the second thing on my workdesk, I owe a thank you to WOYWWer Lunch Lady Jan. Jan posted last week about some crochet flowers she has been trying out and left a link to the pattern and a fab place selling yarn and all sorts of lovely goodies … I haven’t crocheted in years but Jan’s post tempted me to dust off a hook and have a go. I got my sister Marilyn to show me what the pattern meant and I can proudly show you my first attempts just don’t look too closely!

So, that’s what I’m up to this Wednesday. I’m off to Julia’s to visit some more workdesks. See you there?

Mmm gingerbread men, they almost (but not quite) make up for poor smiley pot's injuries!

Great crochet by the way, something we've yet to try.

Gorgeous cushion and the crochet is wonderful. I tried to teach a bunch at a craft club to crochet and they couldn't get much past chain stitch! So yes your flowers are super. Is there a pattern perchance? BJ#6

Monique said...

They look great, very brave of you to have a go at it. I always seem to be to impatient to crochet anything...
Happy WOYWW and I wish you a lovely week.

Hey, those crochet flowers are great - well done. Obviously like riding a bike - once done, never forgotten! I like the cushion cover - it's going to finish brilliantly.
Have a great, busy, creative week.

Oh wow, those flowers look amazing, well done =) I haven't done any for months, Ali wants me to show him so he can make blankets for his teddies, I didn't want him to use my nice yarn, so trying to put him off until I can get him some cheap stuff lol.

The cushion is gorgeous, Hayden will love it. xxx
