Giveaway Pincushion

I have not had a giveaway before but to celebrate my return to blogging  I am giving away two of these pretty pumpkin pincushions.

I love these little pincushions as you can tell by how many I  have crocheted.

They are crocheted in Sirdar Calico DK which is 60% cotton but the look is like a soft chenille and such pretty colours.

If you would like to recieve one of these pincushions just leave your comment on this post, anyone is welcome to take part just leave your details if you don't have a blog.  The two winners will be drawn on 12th October and will be named soon after.  I hope many of you will join in.
The pincushions are designed by Lisolotte and they can be found here they have also been translated to English here.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you like the pincushions and will join in the giveaway.

Take care

I saw this pincushion on ravelry and fell inlove with it I just had to crochet it.
I have got numerous patterns for crochet pincushions and I want to make them all, they look so cute.
It was a little tricky to put together but the end result was worth it.
This next little pumpkin pincushion is a free design here .
It really is a joy to crochet because it is such an easy little pattern to follow
As you can guess there will be more pincushions to post later I hope you like seeing these.
Take care

Baby crochet

As you can see I have really got the crochet bug and I love it.  I have already posted the blue baby afghan in my last post and I liked it so much I decided to crochet it in pink also.

For the little bottees I adapted the pattern and crocheted the tops in the same pattern as the edging on
the afghan. I thought they were so sweet and made a lovely little set.
My friend is expecting a baby girl so she will have the pink one.

I have loved crocheting again and had forgotten how relaxing it can be.

I 've lost count of the many things I have crocheted over the years for myself the children and also for the rest of my family. 
The only things I have crocheted are doyllies I do like to have nice lacy doyllies I know they are a little old fashioned these days but I love them.

I have got more crochet to show you but I will leave that for my next post.

I hope you like my baby crochet and thank you for visiting I hope you will return soon.
Take care
