Get yourself a mug, cup or glass of something and settle yourself down to have a look at the Stylecraft Blogstars’ fabulous Garden Party, and just a little bit of rambling from me.
As blogstars for Stylecraft we have fairly regular meetings, most of these are still via zoom….but we do finally have a face to face meet-up planned for this year. I don’t know about you, but I have really missed physically spending time with like-minded people and bouncing ideas off of one another.
We were chatting over on our What’sApp group and a couple of the blogstars said they wanted to do more together.
So I came up with the idea of a special project to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, this then turned into a garden party theme and so the Stylecraft Blogstars Garden Party started to come to life.
As with all parties, it took a lot of planning, but who doesn’t love a party? Whether it is just a small party for family or friends or a huge street party, there is nothing better than spending time outside on a beautiful summer’s day [bugs and weather permitting!]
We decided, as a group, to use soft pastel colours, which are the colours favoured by Queen Elizabeth, plus they always look fabulous and have a timeless elegance, as well as looking so pretty in a summer garden.

Placemats and coasters are a wonderful way to use up odd balls of cotton yarn and add a splash of colour around your home.
Lilibet can also be attached to a hoop as a hanging mandala or as a pretty mat for your smaller house plants.
Our third guest to the party is Catherine Bligh from catherinecrochetcorner.
Perfect for an afternoon tea in the garden, or to cover that all-important jug of Pimms!
I love the unique style of the Bargello series that Michelle and Anne have designed.
You can find the links to purchase the pattern and read all about the fabulous work these two young mothers do together HERE.
Emily has designed the cutest hanging mobile called Posy of Dreams.
Not only will this add some beautiful decor to any outdoor event, but it would also be perfect to hang above a child’s bed.

Macaron is a stylish circular cushion pattern with both knitted and crocheted versions. I love the little flower embellishments.
It can be easily adjusted to fit different cushion pad sizes.
The pattern includes some ideas for optional edgings and decorations, you can read all about it and find the link to purchase HERE.
This beautifully light, lacey design is perfect for any summer setting.

I think you will agree that the Stylecraft Blogstars are some of the best designers in the crochet world, and the stunning collection of patterns for our little Garden Party are all gorgeous.
I know we will all love to see your makes with our designs and the folk at Stylecraft will also love to see them…
