So you would like to know?

Since there were so many questions asked in the last couple of posts I thought it would be best to answer them. Oh and did you notice I have 200 followers? How crazy is that? But thank you!

Andrea asked:
I love the crochet cushion in an earlier post, would love to know how you put the final product together because I too am in the middle of a granny square which was meant for a blanket but boredom is taking over with it!!! Xx

After I crocheted the granny to the size of my cushion form I cut up a felted cashmere sweater and used that for the other side. I used the ribbed bottom of the sweater for the folds, eliminating the need for a zipper or button closure. I hand sewed the crochet front to the cashmere back.

Elizabeth asked:
Love the boots but those metal garden tool holders for twine and seeds, etc? Those are for me. Where did you find them?

The metal tool holders are from Garden Trading.

Madelief asked:
Yes, those two ladies do look alike :-)! Love the boots!! I am going to England in three months time. Hopefully I can find them. Would like to wear them in my garden. The match the new colour of my garden house perfectly ;-)!

Madelief, the wellies are from Joules but not sure if they are in stock right now.

Krawuggl asked:
The candy coloured trugs are beautibeautiful. Do you know where to buy them?

The pastel trugs can be found at Burgon and Ball.

And lastly, the garden tools can be found at Gift Ideas.

~~~Have a lovely week girls~~~

Your crochet projects have inspired me to learn to crochet. I am a bit limited in what I can do so far, but am enjoying every moment. I get carried away to a zen like space where the world is satisfying and relaxing. I hope one day to be able to create lovely things like yours!!

thanks so much for the information, unfortunately the trugs are sold out at the moment - or shall I better say thank goodness for my pocket money purse? They are so very lovely, have to put them on my birthday wishlist.

Oh, and I completely forgot to also thank you for the book-link. I think I will try either the Chevron blanket instruction or the neat ripple pattern from Attic24. (Although I love moste the soft waves pattern which I have seen so often on Ravelry and this is a Jan Eaton design). My blanket will be a big size, too, just because I thought when I don´t like all this colours I have intended to use in my living room, I could use the blanket perfectly in my spare bed room. So - not a kingsize blanket, but a big blanket as well.
Is the picture on this post from your home? So pretty curtains, love this pattern and the colours.
Have a lovely week,
with my best wishes,
