Pretty Flower Pincushion

Hello.............. Over the past few months with this current relapse of my ME/Lyme disease, I've lost my crochet mojo a little bit.

Feeling so very tired with a foggy brain, I found myself back making granny squares as they don't require much concentration, I got myself a little lost in the repetitive comfy world of the granny, which is great for the blanket I need to finish, but it's very hum drum and importantly I've been lacking Ta-Dah moments

So when a friend gave me this kit from Mollie Makes magazine, it was the perfect project, quick and easy to do and with hopefully a fab Ta-dah at the end.

I mean just look at the colours, just my cup of tea, Plus I got to use my purple hook !!!

Now with my foggy brain I'm not the best at reading patterns, I much prefer a photo tutorial

but as it turns out it wasn't to conffugling to follow

and well this make was just meant to be, lookie it even matches my top.

It was so lovely to lose myself in the pretty colours

Here's how the front turned out.

Then in was onto the back,  which was not quite so much fun, but necessary, I was sure I'd get lost in all the rounds...........

So after popping in some stuffing I was feeling a bit hesitant as to whether the two side would match up stitch for stitch, I had no need to worry though as..........

I had a perfect match, phew, no spare stitches on the back.

(not said that for a while!!)

All finished, and the good thing is I now have something to go in next years craft club exhibition as pincushions are one of themes.

Happy Crafting

  6. What a lovely pincushion, Clare! Thanks for letting us see some of your process in making it. I just in time came to a frantic finish crocheting an art bag for my granddaughter's 7th birthday and posted a photo of the bag today :) Wishing you well. xx
