Crochet cushions

I have a bit of a confession; back in July when I was on holiday crocheting in the sunshine I started two crochet cushions, one an African flower within a hexagon and one based on the beautiful pattern flowers in the snow. They are both quite well advanced in size and I still adore them {Read More…}

Crochet pink stars bunting

Here is the crochet pink stars bunting that was shipped today!

I brought home some swatches to see {Read More…}
