This granny square cushion cover has been "in progress" for a few months now and is the first crochet project I started since catching the crochet bug back in the middle of last year. I enjoyed making up the little granny squares (courtesy of the tutorial by Lucy at Attic24) but I haven't enjoyed sewing in all the ends and crocheting the squares together. I'm glad I only did enough squares for a cushion cover and am not faced with blanket sized proportions!
Last night I finished joining the squares and I've just 9 more ends to sew in. I'm still ages away from a "tada" moment though as I need to find something to use for the back of the cover and then join it all together. Hmmm, perhaps I'll attempt a little crochet flower or something for my next project so that I have the pleasure of completing something in under a year!
We just need a pink dinosaur and then they'll match the cushion cover colours!
Taking decent interior photos at the moment is just impossible with the low light levels at this time of year, using the flash just makes colours look wrong...
...so here is the only photo I'm sharing of my rearranged living room. It's the first traditional stained glass piece I made about 15 years ago. It had been languishing in the spare room as it didn't suit the old living room colour scheme, but now I've covered up the faded red sofa and armchair with throws it actually goes quite well.
Bits of the garden are reappearing from under the snow. These lovely deep pinky-red buds of the flowering currant make me rather happy! Soon I'll be able to see how many of the bulbs I planted in the autumn will be making an appearance - lots I hope.
I'm also looking forward to the time when this little fellow decides there are better things to do than stand on my feet whenever I'm trying to make dinner!
Thanks to the most recent post by Cathy of One Pink Goose I was reminded that I had an unopened tin of biscuits in the cupboard (one of those emergency Christmas presents that you'd really quite like to keep for yourself). The tin design appealed to me...
... and the biscuits aren't too bad either. However, I really must get back out on my bike soon!
