I was gone longer than intended. Sorry about that but I needed a break. Thank you for all your lovely comments.
I have been making these...
...they're to go in my shop. I'm particularly pleased with the Log Cabin one in the top pic as it is my own design. The bottom one is just simple squares joined with double crochet but I think it is very pretty. I have sewn the crochet panels onto ready made cushion covers and they look very nice.
I have a couple more to show you but haven't taken photos yet.
Okay, a little question for you. If you were buying a crochet cushion, would you prefer to also have the back crocheted? I like to buy ready made cushion covers and sew the crochet panel onto the front but have a little niggly feeling that I'm cheating. The added bonus of this (apart from having a ready made zip) is it tends to eliminate stretching of the crochet. Please be honest, I can take it, I promise!
I have decided that in future my blog is going to mainly feature my crafts and the things I am making/have made with maybe just a few family stories thrown in. This is because I don't want to spend hours on the computer anymore. I would rather have more time for...crochet/chocolate/coffee/crafts. Oh wow, I do like things that begin with C, don't I?
I have to say a huge congratulations to Alicia and her husband Andy, who have adopted a gorgeous baby girl. They experienced heartache last year when a previous adoption fell through at the last minute. I'm so happy for them, that little girl is going to grow up in a house filled with love.
Back soon with a patchwork post.
A huge welcome to my new followers. I hope you enjoy my blog. ***HUGS***
Ps. Just wanted to apologise for adding the comments thingy (can't remember what it's called). I know it's a pain but I was getting inundated with spam. Hope it doesn't deter anyone. xxx
