C2C Tartan Cushion / Kissen





Dear friends,

though I am still looking for a better way to translate tartan into crochet, I‘m pretty pleased with the C2C cushion I finished last night. I had made the front last weekend already, but I got carried away with more thistle crochet before I started on the back panels. And as I suddenly had the brilliant idea to make the buttons myself too, I had to order the supplies and wait for them to arrive.



But now the C2C Tartan Cushion is completed and looking good too.

If you‘d care to make one yourself, here‘s the chart. When you‘re a newby to the C2C technique, there are plenty of tutorials online. I quite appreciate the video tutorial by Carolyn of The Purple Poncho.



Happy crocheting!

I‘ll keep in touch!

Liebe Freunde,

obwohl ich immer noch auf der Suche bin nach einen besseren Weg Schottische Tartanmuster (besser bekannt als Schottenkaro) in Häkelmuster zu übertragen, bin ich ziemlich zufrieden mit dem C2C-Kissen, welches ich gestern Abend fertiggestellt habe.



Die Vorderseite war bereits am vergangenen Wochenende fertig, aber ein paar Distel-Projekte haben mich davon abgehalten, die Rückenteile gleich hinterher zu machen. Und dann hatte ich obendrein die geniale Idee hatte, die Knöpfe auch selbst zu machen. Da ich die Utensilien dazu bestellen musste (und warten bis sie ankamen), verzögerte sich die endgültige Fertigstellung noch mehr.
Aber jetzt ist das C2C Tartan Kissen fertig und sieht auch noch gut aus.

Wer auch gerne ein Tartankissen häkeln möchten, findet hier die Legende. Neueinsteiger in der C2C-Technik finden unzählige Tutorials online. Ich persönlich greife immer wieder auf das Video-Tutorial von Carolyn von The Purple Poncho zurück.

Viel Spaß beim Häkeln!



Ich halte euch auf dem Laufenden!

I‘m Dreaming Of A White Christmas…





Dear friends,

I know, many may find I‘m out of my mind thinking of Christmas at the end of September. Maybe I am, but truth be told: I‘ve been in some kind of Christmas mode for most of the year. In April I joined in the 100DayProject and the topic I chose this year was Christmas ornaments (do have a look at the hashtag #100DaysOfCrochetOrnaments on Instagram).

Summer Tablecloth – SommerlicheTischtücher




Dear friends,

mid July Maya (The Little Treasures) wrote a post about the „FlowerPounding Technique“. I was immediately intrigued by this technique, but couldn‘t try it as I didn‘t have any alum powder. By the time the powder arrived I was busy with other things. Yesterday I finally was able to give it a go.

Little Thistle (free pattern) – Kleine Distel (Anleitung)




Dear friends,

on Sunday I felt a bit frustrated. I had finished eight crochet Christmas hearts the night before and I wasn‘t happy about the amount of time it had taken me to get them done.


An thus I didn‘t feel like making Christmasstars, nor did I feel like making Christmasbaubles either. In fact I haven‘t got that many baubles left and therefore the colour-schemes I can turn to are rather restricted and I do not like restrictions at all.

Little Flowers – Kleine Blumen





Little flowers never worry
When the wind begins to blow.
And they never, never cry
When the rain begins to fall.“
                                                                                                    Heritage Singers



Dear friends,

I stumbled upon this song by coincidence. A bit antiquated, but I thought it fitting, cause we (at least on the Northern hemisphere) are longing for spring: no more snow, no more torrential rainfalls, no more storms…

Spring Garland with February Coaster – Frühlingsgirlande





Dear friends,

as soon as I saw the cute garland Sandra of Reflections & Nature made (see here), I knew the living room could do with one too. The living room being rather large, pastels just wouldn‘t do. So I needed strong, vibrant colours. Picking colours at random out of my stash, putting them in some kind of order, I ended up with a rainbow. Suited me fine.

I LOVE YOU




Dear friends,


the hubby‘s ailment completely took me us by surprise and somewhat threw us off track. And it blatantly made plain how much I depend on him, how important he is to me and my well-being and which huge part he plays in my life.

Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer…





Dear friends,

just four more nights to go till it‘s Christmas. Isn‘t that exciting? Now that I‘m ready with the accounts for the business part of Atelier Marie-Lucienne, I‘m really looking forwards to it. I love the Christmas time, the sparkle, the tree, the music, the candlelight, the fairy lights, the cards, …

An apple a day keeps the doctor away…




Dear friends,


I do not totally agree with this saying, cause: I do eat an apple a day (from the apple tree in my parents‘ garden) and I still caught a cold. Nothing too bad, but you know how it feels…

Myriads of Stars - Sternenhimmel






Dear friends,



you might remember I took part in the Friendly Challenge N°106, hosted by Mia. It was so much fun I asked Ana, who is hosting the Friendly Challenge N°107, if I could take part here too. The topic being „Preparing Christmas“, I simply could not resist.



I thought of a few projects, actually started three, but I‘ll only share this one with you.

Thank you for the Music (with Chart / mit Vorlage)





Dear Friends,


  
as I told you in my last post, Mum&Dad came to stay with us last weekend. We had a pretty busy two days though, visiting Aachen and going out for a lovely dinner at our favurite Italian restaurant (where we all ate too much).


When my mum&dad left on Sunday, pretty soon after our late breakfast, I went into the studio and all of the suddenly I remembered Mia.

Mia (craftartista) is hosting the Friendly Challenge N° 106. And when she asked me whether I‘d fancy taking part, I agreed, cause we bloggers should support one another whenever possible, shouldn‘t we?

Garden Owl Pattern - Anleitung Garteneule / Ups and Downs




Dear friends,

  

this week hasn’t been a happy one so far. On Monday we had to say goodbye to Kolumbus, who has been a faithful companion and important part of our family. He and his brother MacLeod (passed away two years ago) saw us through a very tumultuous part of our lives. He was the quieter one, the placid one, a real family-cat, always somewhere near, always there, but now he’s gone, after 12,5 years…

Crochet Owl Cushion for Tim – Gehäkeltes Eulenkissen für Tim





Dear friends,


actually, the pillow is for Tim‘s wife. Tim is one of my colleagues at my day job and he loves crafting with wood. When I found out a few months ago, I asked him whether he could maybe make me a swift. He said it would take a while, but he’d like to give it a try.
  
The week before last I got this beauty!

Rainbow Snails - Regenbogenschnecken




Dear friends,


don‘t quite know whether I‘m happy with what I managed this week. Each „one hour of“ kind of turned out into uploading a few stitch markers onto my Etsy shop. Not too bad, as I still had time to spend crocheting, but…

Even though you might think these snails have been with me all week – I have to disappoint you: I worked on a shawl with that gorgeous Wensleydale yarn I bought in Oban. I‘m on my last ball (and colour) now, it still has to be blocked, and then I will be able to show it to you. Ah well, here‘s a sneak peek…

Sheep Key Pendant / Schlüsselanhänger Schaf

  

Dear friends,


I‘m getting on pretty well with the one-hour-per-day schedule. As long as ordering new supplies counts as one hour of concentrated and thorough working on a subject…

And if not, who cares? I made stitch markers, stitch marker cards, crocheted, made pictures, tidied up the studio (err 😹) and … even wrote a blogpost (well, I‘m still at it – right?).

Bohemian Rhapsody* Placemats



Dear friends,


oh dear! Nearly a month has gone by without a blogpost other than the one of the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party… This actually shocks me, as I never intended on letting day job taking over my life this drastically, but it did somehow.
  
True, we had two busy weekends in between. On the first weekend of August the hubby and I took the weekend off. Margit Hoffmann of Alte Künste had a summer get-together at her place in Rheinland-Pfalz and we took the opportunity to have some quality time together.

"Sheherazade Blue" or/oder " The Keep It Simple Sweater"


Dear friends,


last week, as well as last weekend have been pretty busy (again). And that's why I only write about my newest make today, even though I already finished it on Thursday evening...

A few weeks back Michelle from Dora Does was looking for pattern testers for „The Keep It Simple Sweater“. By chance this coincided perfectly with me looking for a project to test my own hand-dyed yarn with.

Beads Bag (with how-to) – Perlentasche (mit Anleitung)

 

Dear friends,


last Saturday I was hoping the postman would bring me the supplies I ordered for making new stitch markers, but he (actually last Saturday it was a lady postman) brought these instead.
  

True, I had ordered these beads too, but I wasn't really waiting for them impatientently. I had been tempted to make something with beads ever since I scrolled past a video of Naztazia on my facebook feed, so I ordered some, just in case I would feel like eventually, but…

Garden Mandala – Garten Mandala


Dear friends,


yesterday afternoon, it was nearly 6 pm, I suddenly felt like making a few madalas for the front garden. You might remember last year's yarnbombing (here and here), which was mostly in pale blues, soft pinks and purples and greens. Everything is still there, a tiny bit faded maybe, but definitely lacking brightness and vivacity.
