I picked up an old crochet project at the weekend . . . . and decided to finish it off, yay! On thing led to another and I'm now trying to incorporate it into a little ensemble of cushions on my couch . . .
The cushion on the left is the one I finished at the weekend . . .
The block patterns were taken from Leonie Morgan's lovely book: 100 Bright and Colourful Granny Squares. I had sewn the four blocks together and they had sat there for a good few months - on Sunday I added another round of double crochet to 'tie' them altogether and then three rounds of treble crochet all round.
The middle oblong cushion is a few years old I think from when I started to learn to crochet! It's been lying dormant ever since - oooops!
The cushion on the right is my current work in progress . . .
The pattern is from Susan Pinner's fab book - Granny Squares - a lovely inspiring book of crochet projects for the home.
It's nice to get back to some crochet - so easy to pick up and drop whenever - just a wee bit addictive though :) I'll be back to getting some 'tweedie' work this afternoon.
My latest addition to the ship is a personalised Harris Tweed cosmetics purse - quite fun and funky I think :) Very pastel, sorbet colours - with a fresh gingham lining . . .
Better get the sewing machine out now for some tweedieness athough it would be good to get some crochet and knitted items in there soon too!
Bye for now :)
