How are you at the moment? Are you finding that your crafty life is actually more of a life-line than it has ever been? Me too… After a long day sat at the screen in Skype/zoom/team world I crave the time spent with my yarn. Every stitch seems to smooth out the crinkles in my brain.

This week I am thrilled that the new issue of Inside Crochet Magazine will start to appear on the doormat or the shop shelves. I’ve had a look at the patterns and the colourful and zesty colours are brilliant for the summer season.

It seems an age ago that I designed the Crazy Daisy Cushion for this issue. If you follow this blog you will know how much I love using crochet in the garden. There is nothing more luxurious than piling swathes of cushions and blankets on to the grass.

The great thing about outdoor soft furnishing is that your colour scheme can be a bit more adventurous. This design is very quick to make as it uses Stylecraft Special Aran and 5mm. Drag out your stash to aran and let your imagination go wild.

I have got to admit that I adore designing for Inside Crochet Magazine. The images they take are glorious and I get so excited to see how they have styled my work. I made two versions of the same pattern, using up as much of the yarn as I could. Do tell me what your think and it always lovely to hear how you are getting on with your lock-down craft projects. For now have a happy weekend and let those needles or hooks fly with creativity.
