Grandma Violet Cushion pdf

Grandma Violet Cushion pdf
will be out very soon...


I will have enough time thou
with all the proof reading to get in a giveaway
before it's ready...


I think dear Henry will help 
this time...

I have loved making this cushion...
and wish I would have written it out a lot better as I went...
I have pages scated everywhere with little notes
and diagrams...
and it really didn't make much sense when it came to the
proper writing out...


So while I read and re- read what I have down
a giveaway will be just sweet to make sure
it is all finished within the week.

So please add a comment...
Telling me what your favorite flower is...
As Henry my new little friend has whispered his favorite to me
and the very first dear to get it right will win this 
pdf pattern before I pop it into my etsy shop.


Till next post stay safe...
And keep up the granny goodness wherever you may be...

Oh what a gorgeous cushion. Is Henry's fave flower a cornflower by any chance! I think my favourite would have to be the tulip, such bright beautiful colors!

Vickie said...

I do love my peonies - they are so delicate and graceful. I just wish they had a stronger scent or some scent - soooo my next favorate is the gardenia. Love the pillow - can't wait to try the pattern. Thanks so much!!!!

It's hard to pick a favorite flower...so many good ones. How about dahlia? They are in season and are so pretty cut. Love the new pattern!

Jak said...

My fav is a bright red geranium, but as the beautiful cushion looks like a sunflower, I would have to say that would probably be Henry's choice.

My favorite flower is the pansy/viola- They have such sweet faces and come in so many pretty colors. They are also among the first to herald the end of winter.

The cushion is lovely. I purchased the Grandma's Garden pattern and have enjoyed making some pillows from it. Looking forward to this pattern!

Pammy Sue said...

I love roses. To me there's nothing better! So that's my guess for Henry's fav too.

Sunweeds said...

Poppies? Tres smelly say my kids, but they're always impressed with the 'pop' factor.

Gorgeous piece of crocheted magic, as per usual...!

Charmaine said...

What a great cushion!! Ik really love it!

My favourite flower is by far the lotus and the magnolia but not many people is calling them a favourite so my guess for henry is .... eh.....roses?
I do hope so it is! ;)

Miss Muggins said...

I love a grape hyacinth - heralds that Spring is on its way. I also love the cushion, you come up with wondeful ideas time and time again.

Monique said...

How about the snowdrop (I hope that is the right word for it)

Clara said...

I'm going to guess the simple daisy as I think that is what Henry loves best!

Annemarie's Breiblog said...

crochethealingandraymond said...

*whispers*.... could it be a violet?

louise said...

I think Henry likes buttercups because they are so bright and cheerful.

Juliab said...

My favourite flower is the auricula and funnily enough, your cushion looks just like one!

Catherine said...

I quite like super happy zinnias... and really love your cushion - so clever!

Baa-Me Kniits said...

My favourite is the Gardenia, something about Gardenias and Grandma's....could that be Henry's favourite as well??

Lillian said...

Do we get a second guess? It's fall in my neck of the woods and the mums and asters are gorgeous - maybe Henry fancies them?

Pammy Sue said...

Peonies?

Stargazers?

Lilacs?

Vicki said...

knitgirl66 said...

Would Henry's favourite flower be Anemones??

needlekrafter said...

so beautiful! favorite flower? that's a hard one-- my favorites are the very fragrant lilac, lily of the valley and peony... but for now i'll settle for lily of the valley. :)

tinsel said...

a lovely pillow here.My favorate flower is a peon .

Hooked On Yarn said...

Let's go Aussie then, and say the waratah, or wattle, or Sturt's Desert pea...

Renee and Tom said...

Carnations because they smell pretty!!!!

Joanna said...

Lovely pillow!! Though I don't know if my favourite has a chance. Not many seem to know it when I say it. It's not much of a garden flower where I am. But I do love it in bouquets when I can get them. I knew for years before I even met "the one" that it would be my wedding flower, and it was. Alstromeria. Also known as the peruvian lily. Particularly the peach variety. <3

That and lilac. First thing I insisted on upon buying a house was planting a lilac bush. :)

Urban Tortoise said...

What a gorgeous pattern. My to do list keeps getting longer!
My favourite flower is the Hibiscus flower, partly for their beauty, but also because my tortoises find them delicious and it is amazing watching their excited feeding frezy when I offer one to them!
