Spring is springing, yippee!
Happy St. David's day.
Yesterday I said I would post a picture of my two crochet cushions... and I have... but there at the end of this post. Is that being sneaky...making you look at all the flowers and foliage first...?
I've been out in my garden absorbing the sunshine and the delights of new growth.
The damson about to blossom
Snow drops drooping prettily
A barrel of narcissus
Divine scented Daphne
Lungwort flowering under the Daphne and greeny fronds of grape hyacinths
...and Ta Dah
My two crochet cushions.
The one on the left is from a Cath Kidston kit I bought half price in Windsor, and the cushion on the right I made afterwards with yarn from my stash. The four centre grannies were a tad smaller than the outer squares so I hooked a row of double crochet all around for a tidier sewn together look.
They are both acrylic.
The red cushion on the right I knitted several months ago and I used Wendy Mode DK doubled, from my local yarn store.
What I think must have been a stash buster, the stripey blanket, was a charity shop purchase. I love finds like that! It's getting a bit holey though...hmm...I can see a good excuse to create some bright hooky patches.
Thanks for joining me.
Have a lovely weekend. Bye xx
