Crochet Pincushions.

Hi, not been around for quite a while, so it’s nice to be back.  I have been looking after my mum, who’s condition is getting worse I’m afraid.  Alzhiemer’s is a horrible disease which causes so much distress, not only to the sufferer but also to the people who support them.   I still find it difficult to realise that my mum is now more like a toddler than a 93 year old woman.

Anyway, I keep my sanity by crocheting, and these pincushions are something that I enjoy making, they are quick and I have made enough now that I don’t have to count so carefully when I make them.  I love looking for fabulous buttons to go in the middle, and I think I have found some wonderful ones with these little faces, they are so cute!The actual pincushion is made from Anchor Magicline,  it’s a lovely cotton in mouthwatering colours. I love the watery blues and greens of the one above.

The yellow one reminds me of summer, its like an ice lolly colour, refreshing and sweet.

 

I have one more to show you, a lovely blue one.  Blue is my favourite colour. The button I found for this one is a sparkling crystal heart. Actually not crystal but plastic, however, it looks good.

I thought I might put these on Etsy in my shop Under the Hedgerow, will try to do that tomorrow.

Anyway, its nice to be back and thank you for looking.

Cheers Rosie
