New Blog

all pictures by Jenn from Color 'n Cream

I don't know about you, but I am always super happy when one of you approaches me through e-mail to get in touch, and chat a little about blogging or crocheting. it feels like meeting new friends.

it was a few weeks ago when Jenn from the Netherlands sent me an e-mail and we started chatting. we share an international moving experience, both love to crochet and sew, and get carried away with making color combinations. she happens to be way ahead of me when it comes to making crochet cushions with a fabric backing. you find two of them in the pictures above. I am in awe how she adds a beautiful border of crochet at the back, and hope she will learn me how to do this.

aren't the color combinations she picked lovely? and matching yarn with fabric is such a fun thing to do...
all the beautiful work, her pretty craft space and her darling girls can be found at her new blog Color 'n Cream
go say hi to Jenn and make sure you become a new follower of her pretty crafts!

also, I am thinking about sharing pretty new blogs on a monthly basis. what do you think? did you recently start blogging, or do you know of someone who did and would like to have a little feature here? please let me know


  1. You have a beautiful blog. Very lovely. Very colourful. Very full of life. I am visiting your blog the first time and am awed. Wonderful!

    You are talking about new bloggers. Sangeetha of is a new blogger and a crocheter. Her blog is coming up well. Do visit her blog. Am sure it could be featured in your new bloggers land!
