If you’ve done so on my previous post, you’re already “in”!

This week was a busy, mainly non-crafty week ….. I managed to make some progress on Carter’s Chevron Blanket, prepare a little crochet gift (can’t show you yet), as well as make another cute little photo frame (link to pattern in this post).

Together with some crocheting bloggers/ig-ers I’ve been invited to another one of Lisanne‘s Crochet Parties, and I’m soooo looking forward to that (more on the first “Crochet Party”, here).
This time it’s held in “Knotten” in Delft, and I’m told we’re going to delve into Lana Grossa‘s wonderful world of yarny goodness.
Are you familiar with this brand? I’ve worked with Lana Grossa once before – my “Rosebud Shawl” – and truly loved the softness and high quality of that particular yarn (365 Cotone).
maRRose - CCC --- Rosebud Shawl-07Expectations are high! And, of course, I’ll report here soon!

Wishing you a wonderful Saturday,

KreaDoe – Triangle Pincushions

maRRose - CCC - pincushionsRecently I told you about my exciting new part-time job as blogger for the biggest Dutch Craft Fair, KreaDoe. In my first blog post for them I shared my “Yarn Ends Bowl” (Dutch diy here) the second one that has just gone live on KreaDoe’s site is how to make your own triangle pincushion (English tutorial here – Dutch how-to here).

These pincushions are another favorite project of mine – a rather quick make, and a cute little gift. We all sew sometimes don’t we, and we all need a pincushion to keep those pins from going to dangerous places…..
Whenever I plan on gifting one myself, I do like to personalize them as much as I can, as you can see here ….
maRRose - CCC --- Koffie-Wol pincushion-02 maRRose - CCC --- Draad en Praat-Lisanne pincushion maRRose - CCC --- tulips pincushion maRRose - CCC - Rietveld pincushion-40The last one I personalized is this one ….. I’m sure that’s no surprise ….;):
maRRose - CCC - pincushion-55I also made a couple of new ones, and if you’d like to win one, please leave a comment below (also letting me know which one you’d prefer: the orange/mint, or the soft peach).

Good luck!
