I’m back and with a new pattern

Well hello there my blog buddies.   It’s been a long while since I’ve been here hasn’t it!  I’ve been up to my elbows in paint and plaster for the last 3 months renovating and ‘jooshing’ up our home.  So not much time was had for crochet but happily life has gone back to normal now and I’m back in my cosy little crochet zone.

Now that my house is finally spruced up I’m attacking my very (very) long ‘Poppy & Bliss To-Do’ list.  Top of the list was getting the pattern written for this Tunisian Triangles cushion which, according to my Instagram feed, first made an appearance some 82 weeks ago …. ahem … nothing like the present moment hey 😉

TunisianTriangles_Fuschia by Poppy and BlissThe original is long gone to a new home so I dug deep into my huge WIP pile and finished off another two that I’d started in different colour-ways and had been patiently waiting for some love and attention.

Fuelled with lots of coffee, I finally sat down and got the pattern onto paper and hopefully for you to enjoy.  I hate to get all ‘buy my stuff’ but if you’d like to buy the pattern then you can find it either in my Etsy or Ravelry stores.

This is not a difficult pattern, using only Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS) but some patience and concentration may be required for the colour changes at first.  Once you get going though you will be powering along, excited to get to the next set of colours.  If you’re comfortable with the basics of Tunisian crochet then you will be able to do this easily.
Charts are included for two different colour-ways plus pictures of even more to inspire your own creation.
I hope you like it!

Until next time

New Pattern – Squircles

SquirclesCollage_withtitle

Wow it’s been nearly a year since I released my last pattern.  Oops! Time kind of got away from me there …. I’ve been busy.

But after much crocheting, typing, proof-reading , testing, jiggling and tweaking the Squircles pattern is finally finished.  Woohoo!

I really love how the Aqua, Mint and Silver work with the Slate in this blanket.  I’ve decided that Slate is the new black and is my new favourite colour.

It  also works well in other colours too.  Here’s just a few …

I hope you like Squircles as much as I do.  If you’d like to make your very own Squircles blanket, the pattern is now available in my Etsy and Ravelry stores.

Until next time – happy hooking

Gelato

I’m so happy to release my new pattern ‘Gelato’.  I actually finished making this one many many weeks ago according to my instagram feed but one thing led to another and the actual writing of patterns did take a back seat for awhile there.

So today, I sat down and plugged away until it was finally done …. well the crochet version anyway.  There is also a knitted version of this one coming too.  

One of the things holding me back was the picture taking side of things.  Gah!  It is so hard to photograph a blanket and I badly need some styling and props help.   But for now I won’t let my poor skills in this area hold up production.

So without any further a-do, you can find the pattern for Gelato either in my Ravelry or Etsy store.

In other news, I’m working on some free patterns and maybe even a giveaway or two.  These are all on top of my list and hope to have them ready to share very soon.

Until next time xx
