My creative space crochet

Hi there, it's been a busy week hasn't it.
We had school sports on Wednesday.
I love it, I am one of "those Mums" who go every year.
Wear the colours of my children's teams.
Take a thermos and sunscreen and jelly babies for the kids to share at lunch.
I tell you, I was so proud my heart nearly burst.
They put in such a good effort and more importantly,
were very good sports.

At night, now it is getting cooler,
I have been enjoying snuggling the couch and doing a bit of crochet.

I am making a cushion cover.
Inspired by the wonderful Lucy from
And some other cushions I have seen on my web wanders.

Seeing the little piles of squares grow is extremely satisfying.

It's nearly finished.
I thought I would be done by now.
Unfortunately there hasn't been enough couch time this week.

I do find peppermint tea and dark chocolate are essential partners to crochet.

What have you been up to?

Linking up over at Our Creative Spaces


  1. Did you accidently take "the poo chair"?? I did! LOL!

    PS> you're one clever girl there!

  2. Gosh those squares remind me of my late grandmother. She taught me how to crochet but I can't remember now. I look forward to your end results x

  3. Sports day is one of those lovely yearly events! I have been crocheting some grannies myself. I found Attic24 via a google search for a beginners granny square pattern and I have been hooked ever since! I used the flower pattern of hers to make a crochet flower garland too! Your colours look fantastic together, looking forward to seeing them finished! Happy weekend! X

  4. Can't wait to see the end result Deb. I love crochet, my mum used to do it all the time when I was a kid and my sister too but I've never been able to get the knack of it maybe I'll look at attic 24. It's going to be a gorgeous cushion with those colours.


  5. Little crochet squares are something I used to take great delight in making once upon a time. I could crochet like mad but thoroughly hopeless at knitting.

  6. I'm going to search for my long forgotten crochet hook after seeing this. I bought a lovely crochet brooch in a market once that is identical to these squares and it's often commented on. I might even get inspired to make a few for the school fete. I wonder if I'll's been many years. Google here I come!

  7. Ohhh gorgeous little squares ! cant wait to see the finished product :))
