  2. Quand on regarde toutes ces photos on a vraiment l'impression que c'est très simple à faire, mais je reconnais le travail et la finition soignée. L'effet du coussin terminé est ravissant et je trouve presque dommage de le positionner derrière le dos dans un fauteuil. Sa place serait plutôt sur les genoux bien en évidence pour présenter la beauté de la réalisation ;-)
    Voilà une maison bien confortable avec toutes ces confections en crochet !!!!!

  10. How nice! It reminds me my grandmother crochet but your choice of colours is great! http://madecomaison.blogspot.com.es/2011/01/le-coussin-avec-le-crochet-de-grand.html

    1. Your grandmother's crochet is so very similar to this cushion...she must have been from the same background as the blind nun that the original pattern came from. :-)

  11. I just love when someone can make a granny square pattern popular. To me, they never go out of style. This is a gorgeous pillow, and I LOVE your blog header photo!

  12. Thanks very much for doing this. I really love the flowers and I am thinking some of my flowers will go missing even before they get the leaves and border. My granddaughters ages 5 and 7 are loving the flowers and they have even told some of their friends at school about them. I'll probably end up making a couple extra for them to play with. The 7 year old doesn't know it but the pillow is for her birthday.

    1. That is the sweetest story about your granddaughters...talking about them at school: truly warms my heart.

      Please send a pic of the birthday pillow, would love to see it!

  13. Beautiful - thank you for taking the time to post all this. I'm new to crochet, but I will make this soon.

  14. Is this pillow machine washable at all?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello Kim! Your are welcome and I hope to see your finished pillow. Depending on the yarn you choose it is washable - mines 100% acrylic and since there's a button closure it's easy to slip off and throw in the wash. Wool would be trickier.

  15. Nice job! I may be taking a leaf out of your book and doing a crochet-along for my May pattern (which also happens to be a pillow - it's the bit in my yarn volcano picture that caught your eye, the pink and green and yellow project.) My pillow will probably only have crochet on the front, because I designed the motif to go with the decorator fabric (so I want the fabric to show on the back). I just need to figure out how to put it all together.

    I like your cheerful pink background and your picots - I love picots made in the top of the previous stitch.

    1. Oh I can't wait for your crochet-a-long! At the end of May I will attend a conference with the NVO and he will be occupied during the days so I can't think of anything finer than a C.A.L to occupy me.

      The CAL has been a lot of fun. People are so kind, appreciative and enthusiastic. You will have fun with it. :-)

  24. I love this project! Do you have the instructions written out somewhere so I can study them? I really want to do this but am having some trouble following all the instructions from the computer screen. Thank you.

    1. Hi Marcia,

      I'm sorry I do not have it written out; however, perhaps you could copy and paste into a word processing document and then print out?

      Good luck,

      Astri

  25. Thank you, Astri! I will try that. I'm just finishing a cute throw for my son's gf in her college colors and once that's finished I plan to start this project. I've recently rediscovered my passion for crocheting -- haven't done it since high school, ehem, 30-something years ago. I've never tried granny squares, but this so adorable, I simply cannot wait to start it!!

    I really enjoy your blog, btw. Lots and lots of cute ideas and great information!

  28. I just found this site the other day on Pinterest. I made a couple of the dishcloths for my secret sister. I love this rose pattern and would like to attempt to make an afghan rather than a pillow. Even though I might make the pillow for practice. Can one make an afghan out of the roses and how many would one need?

    1. Hi Cheri, I made one afghan with 120...see this post:
