The Number is Eight

With this week's email came news that pattern #8 of mine will be published between now and the end of the year. Eight. I am certain all of you must be wondering exactly when the published pattern parade will begin. Quite frankly, so am I. I think anytime after June is looking like a fairly safe bet.

In the meantime, I started that excellent cushion cover I wrote about last week from Star Crochet 2:

Isn't it just good, round fun? I'm done with that part of the cover, and am now working on the other side. Hopefully, I'll have it finished for next week.

Finally, back on the 21st of April, I blogged about a pay-it-forward scheme in which I'm taking part. Two people have responded and will receive a gift from me, made especially for them, sometime within the next year. There's still one more spot, so if anyone would like to receive a hand-made gift when they least expect it ...

Now definitely check in over at Andrea's blog to see what other kinds of good fun everyone else is getting into this Fee-Fi(ber)-F.O. Friday.

And to all the mothers - have a happy day this Sunday!

A p.s. to Vivianne over at Kismet's Companion - here's the close-up of that awesome gray mohair kid seta I received recently in a swap. Can you see the bling? It definitely looks better than the current state of your bathroom.


  1. Congrats on a new published pattern. I'm very excited for you. The chair cushion looks comfy too. I LOVE that mohair. Squeal, that would be lovely in a project. I'm passing on the pay it forward since I have already received so many wonderful gifts from you. May these people see the beauty you create and be inspired.

  2. LOL *everything* looks better than the current state of my bathroom. Lucky I don't like grey, huh. I'm pretending those other colors in your photo don't exist .... :-D

  3. Yay to number 8. You've been even more busy than your blogging would suggest :).

    I love the way the cushion cover is coming along.

  4. Cheers for pattern #8! Your cushion cover is looking beautiful.

  5. Great for getting all those patterns published! Are you now allowed to talk about them until they are out? Look forward to seeing your creations!

  6. Congratulations on your pattern being published! Your cushin looks to be a pretty and comfy one when it's finished.

    Good luck with the pay it forward items

  7. Absolutely looking forward to the publishing parade... In the meantime, congratulations on #8!

  8. Congrats on publishing #8! I'm crocheting a round cushion, too. Round and round she goes. Fun! I'm almost done with the second side.
