Crochet Tumbling Blocks Effect Heart Cushion Pattern – Take 2!


After completing my tumbling blocks cushion I decided I wanted to do another without a background and using a different textured stitch, and from that a new tumbling blocks cushion was born.

Pattern for this is now available on my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

Crochet Tumbling Blocks Effect Heart Cushion: Part 1


Since making my tumbling blocks pineapple blanket and pineapple cushion I have had a few more tumbling projects in the works and the first out is this heart cushion.  I added some textures to the heart blocks with some bobbles to make them really stand out from the background and give a textured feel and opted to use two different pinks one on the front heart and one on the back, though you could do them both the same if you preferred.

Pattern for this is now available on my Etsy and Ravelry shops.

I always have a slightly different version of a heart tumbling block cushion available.

Anniversary present problem solved… heart coasters


I was having some difficulty in thinking of something to make for a relatives upcoming wedding anniversary until I stumbled across a pattern in Simply Crochet magazine (Issue 14) for a heart square motif. I knew these would make great little coasters and also provide a small personal gift that could be utilised, rather than another ornament or cross-stitch sampler.


These were really easy to make and came together very quickly. I choose to do them in three different colours, with the same pale background, which I knew the person receiving them would like. I think they look really good and the recipient was very pleased with them too.
