Sunday Morning Ideas – Ideen am Sonntagmorgen

Dear friends,

I've got this really bad habit of reading/leafing through books, magazines or advertizing leaflets while having breakfast on weekends. So I did this morning too. But let's start at the beginning...

Yesterday evening after our evening bite, the hubby and I tackled one of the cupboards in the living room. We've been patchworking since 2011 and never really sorted things through ever since. So we tackled this cupboard, discarded quite a few things and I stumbled upon a huge pile of magazines.

Great! Got something to leaf through for the next few weeks. Leaf through and discard it afterwards – was (and still is) my plan. After all I hadn't missed these magazines these last few years...

Happy Birthday! + Give-Away! + Preisausschreiben!

Header from 2015


Dear friends,

I can hardly believe it, but my blog just turned 3! Very quietly and hardly noticed – not even by me.

Lucienne's Summer Mandala
As so often my decision to blog was very spontaneous and because of that I cannot really remember which day I actually started. Must have been the 5th or the 6th of January 2015 – as my first post was published on the 7th - but I'm just guessing.

Be it as it may. A lot has happened since then: I've written quite a few patterns and tutorials, opened an Etsy-shop and even started a Link-Up Party! AND! My little crochet space has reached 500.000 views! I certainly didn't dare dreaming any of this when I started blogging.

Welcome to the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party!

This Link-Up Party is all about granny squares. You are most welcome to link-up any projects you've made with either the traditional granny square, the solid one or any granny square you love or even have created yourself. 

(Hier geht's zu den deutschsprachigen Erläuterungen...)

The Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party will start on the first Saturday of each month at 8 a.m. (CET) and will run 20 days. You'll be able to share your finished objects as well as your WIPs with other crocheters from all around the world. The five most popular links will be featured and shared on my social media sites.

You haven't got to be a “big name” or a designer to join the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party. All you need is a granny square related crochet (or knit) post. By joining the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party you will be able to grow your blog as well as gather loads of inspiration.

Party Rules (please read!):

  1. Link directly to a granny square related crochet (or knit) blogpost (not to your home page). If you haven't got an actual project to show, feel free to add a link to an old blogpost! Anything family-friendly goes!
  2. Limit to 3 links and don't repeat projects which have already been featured.
  3. Link up your own work. Links infringing on copyright and/or trademark as well as sponsored posts will be deleted.
  4. Please visit at least one other link and leave a nice comment to support your fellow crafter!
  5. I'd highly appreciate if you'd follow me on at least one of my social media links (see below) – if only to know if you got featured or when the next Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party is due.

By adding your link to the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party, you give me permission to share your post and pictures on my social media sites, in features, in round-ups and on my blog (always with a link back to you for proper credit).

Help me to get the Granny-Spiration Link-Up Party known by sharing on social media, by linking back to this party and by tagging it with #GrannySpirationLinkUpParty. The more people taking part, the merrier it'll become!

Follow me on: Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Pinterest

Have fun!

Thank you for joining the party!
