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).

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Progress - Fortschritte



Dear friends,


I'm finally getting somewhere. Well at least I've got the feeling things are finally moving on. It started with the dyeing experiment (which will continue next week) and it ended with pattern-writing.

Episode 4 + C2C Fox Cushion / C2C Fuchskissen




Dear friends,



🐑🐰Happy Easter!🌷🐣


You might know by now that I've got a soft spot for foxes. Even though I have, you never could have told by my crochet, could you? That's why I decided on making a fox cushion approx. three weeks ago.

A month from now … / In einem Monat …



A month from now ... and the advent season starts!

Dear friends,


it's the 1. of November. Guess it's time to start thinking about the Advent as well as the Christmas season. Sometimes I already had gathered all Christmas presents – not this year though...

Having two days off I spent the first one (yesterday) on Etsy, uploading items. Uploading Christmas Baubles, to be precise!

Henrietta Square – Henrietta Quadrat



Pattern/Tutorial release!

Dear friends,


I simply couldn't wait any longer: I HAD to release the Henrietta Square Pattern/Tutorial.
You've last heard of the Henrietta Square on the 23rd of September (here) when I announced who the winners of the giveaway were.
All pattern testers were eager to help me and they sure had some suggestions or remarks which I heeded and now both versions (English and German) are completed.
The pattern testers were so kind to send me some pictures of their versions of the Henrietta Square, do have a look:

Ulrike, who I know privately, was the first one to give Henrietta a try:

Alexandra (EyeLoveKnots), whom you all know from the Granny-Spiration Challenge helped me out too:

Next came Nata, Lysann and Annette:
Nata

Lysann

Annette

Isn't it amazing how much the Henrietta Square changes using different colour-schemes?

BTW: Nata as well as Lysann each wrote a post about the Henrietta Square!

Surely, you do remember that the „Henrietta Square“ is the first pattern which isn't free. It's now available in my Etsy-Shop in English(UK-Terms) as well as in German.
However!
Especially for you – my dear friends and followers – there is a pattern release sale of 20% - just enter following code: HENRIETTA
This sale starts today and will end on the 31st of October!


Phew! That's it: No turning back! The pattern is released. Guess I'll make myself a cup of tea and grab my hook to calm my nerves!... I'll keep in touch!

P.S.: I'll show you Jane's pictures as soon as I've got them!





Liebe Freunde,


Die Anleitung des Henrietta Quadrats ist veröffentlicht!

Ich konnte einfach nicht länger warten: Ich MUSSTE die Anleitung zum Henrietta Quadrat veröffentlichen!
Am 23. September (hier) verkündigte ich die Gewinner des Preisausschreibens und seitdem habt ihr nichts mehr vom Henrietta Quadrat gehört.
Alle Testhäklerinnen waren voller Ehrgeiz mir unter die Arme zu greifen und sie hatten schon die eine oder andere Anmerkung, die ich alle eingearbeitet habe. Nun sind aber beide Versionen – die Englische sowohl als die Deutsche – fertig!

Die Testhäklerinnen waren so nett mir einige Bilder von ihren Henriettas bereit zu stellen, schaut her!

Ulrike, die ich Privat kenne, wagte sich als erste an das Henrietta Quadrat:

Dann nahm sich Alexandra (EyeLoveKnots), welche ihr alle von der Granny-Spiration Challenge kennt, die Anleitung zur Brust:

Schließlich kamen Nata, Lysann und Annette:
Nata

Lysann

Annette

Ist es nicht erstaunlich, wie unterschiedlich das Henrietta Quadrat jedes mal aussieht, abhängig von der Farbpalette?

Übrigens, sowohl Nata, als auch Lysann haben jeweils einen Blogpost über das Henrietta Quadrat geschrieben!

Nun ihr erinnert euch bestimmt daran, dass es das Henrietta Quadrat nicht umsonst gibt. Zum ersten mal seitdem es meinen Blog gibt, ist diese Anleitung (sowohl die Deutsche als auch die Englische Version) nur in meinem Etsy-Shop käuflich zu erwerben.
ABER!
Extra und nur für euch - meine Freunde und Follower - gibt es von heute, bis zum 31. Oktober, 20% Rabatt auf die Anleitung! Bei Etsy müsst ihr einfach den Code HENRIETTA eingeben!
 

Pffff! Nun gibt’s kein zurück mehr: Die Anleitung ist raus! Ich mache mir jetzt mal eine Tasse Tee und schnappe mir meine Häkelnadel, bis sich meine Nerven wieder etwas beruhigt haben... Ich halte euch auf dem Laufenden!

P.S.: Die Bilder von Jane reiche ich nach!

Easy Christmas Stocking – Einfacher Weihnachtsstrumpf



Dear friends,


you haven't seen many tutorials on this page lately. As Christmas is a time of giving, I thought could share my Christmas patterns with you. Let's start with my current favourite: a Christmas Stocking!

Material:
  • scissors, yarn needle
  • crochet hook (I used a 4mm one)
  • yarn (Stylecraft DK and Katia Gatsby)
