Bloomin' Crochet-A-Long Week 5

I can't believe it is already week 5 of the crochet-a-long! It has been lovely that so many of you have been joining in these past few weeks with Chrissie and I, and sharing your gorgeous crochet makes...I have found it very inspiring to see what others are making. The only problem is that my crochet 'to do' list is now much longer than before the crochet-a-long started!

I don't have any hexies to show this week as I have been busy finishing off a little cushion from Cute & Easy Crochet with Flowers, which I started quite a few weeks back here...


It is the crown-edged cushion cover from the book, although I decided against adding the crown edge as Miss M told me that she thought it was too "spiky"?! As the cushion was for her, I added a different edging which she is happy with, I am pleased to report! I enjoyed making this, it is a very simple pattern and I used only yarn which I already had in my stash.



Here it is on Miss M's bed. She likes to have a few cushions and blankets on her bed as she loves to curl up in amongst them all and read her books.


I haven't had much time for crochet or crafting this week really as I have been working a lot, but I did manage to make another square for my granny scarf and a couple of roses for another little project I have planned...



What crochet projects do you have on the go this week?

A World of Imagination


Hazel's Crochet

  1. I love the cushion and the edging is really pretty also I love the roses, I can't wait to see what they are for. Have a good weekend. Deb x

  2. In a word - perfect, love it. I can't wait to see the project with the roses as I know it will be just adorable, you are so clever, have a fabulous weekend. Big hugs to you

  3. Hi Marianne
    I just love the dusty rose pink colour that your little roses are made from, gorgeous.
    It looks like you've been busy, busy, busy !

  4. The cushion is very pretty, and the flowers are lovely, just working on WIPs here :) xx

  5. I love the pillow and the flowers, isn't it a shame when working gets int he way of our crafting time?

  6. The cushion looks lovely and is clearly making itself quite at home in it's new bedroom home! Love the roses too, and looking forward to seeing what they turn into. I don't think that I have crocheted a thing for the last week - too much sewing! xx

  7. Lovely little cushion and you're scarf is going to be great. I had a whole day this week just to crochet, it was wonderful! :) x

  8. I love the colours in your scarf ... so pretty!

  9. A beautiful cushion, the central colours are gorgeous as is your edging.

  10. What a lovely cushion! I'm ever so curious about the roses, you always do lovely things with your crochet flowers! And the pink scarf...well, I've just finished my snood, I might have to start the scarf now, it's just *so lovely*! Chrissie x

  11. Your cushion is so pretty, nice work! I love your scarf too. I'm still working away on a granny stripe blanket for my son, which is getting kind of boring, and I'm making a sort-of cowl for myself, making it up as I go but it's working out so far.

  12. What a gorgeous little cushion, so sweet, sadly I've had not time to crochet this week, all I've managed is one petal on a poppy I'm making for my sister, I really need to get a move on with it.

  13. What a gorgeous looking cushion and the edging works lovely.

  14. Beautiful crochet Marianne!.....I love the colours and the pretty border..I've made some little crochet pincushions this week which I've made from the book in your pic and have a cushion on the go...I'm planning to add some flowers when it's finished...
    Happy Thursday!

  15. Your new cushion is so pretty, and I love the edging. It looks so sweet on your little girl's bed! Love those pretty crochet flowers too :)
    Helen x

  16. How did I miss the gloves post?!! They are brilliant. I think it is always really satisfying to use up bits of stash so when you open up your wool basket it is full of inspiring things not bits of allsorts. Jo x

  17. Gorgeous cushion looks beautiful!! Wow week 5 already that's flown by. The granny squares are looking lovely for the scarf xx

  18. Miss M's new cushion is lovely :)

  19. The little cushion is so sweet Marianne, Miss M must be thrilled with it! Your lovely pink roses and square are also very sweet - you've done well to fit in so much, as well as work! Wishing you a happy relaxing weekend! Warm hugs, Joy xo

  20. I bet she really like her new cushion, you did a great job.

  21. Your cushion is beautiful and just the colours that I love. I am still on with my crocheted bed throw, I am hoping it will not be too long before its finished but I would love to do some cushions to match.

  22. A really simple( in the nicest way) but beautiful cushion. You will smile when you read what I am working on. I am still totally in love with your Neapolitan Blanket idea. The one in blues is a I type winging its way to a dear newborn baby boy. But the Neopolitan was whispering so I listened and am about 2/3 rds of the way through it.
    Thank you x

  23. Sometimes isn't it just lovely and relaxing to just make a simple pattern. Lovely job, I really like the colours.

  24. Your cushion is so very pretty Marianne as is your pretty flowers. I am sure that cushion will be dearly loved. I am currently working on a snood, but it is trial and error so we will see how it goes. Enjoy your weekend xoxo

  25. Es precioso! lo sencillo es lo más bonito.
    un abrazo
