WIPs, Pretty Finds and another Cushion!

I'll start with the cushion as that's something finished. It was so easy and quick to finish my last one that I thought I should crochet another cushion. I used bits and pieces left over in my wool stash.


There wasn't enough of the peach colour to use on both sides.


Two big granny squares, instant gratification!



 My other crafty endeavours are WIPs, I love this cushion. I haven't made a round one before and after much web searching came across Attic 24 and Lucy's flower pattern.




I think it's so pretty and the colours go together well. The instructions are lovely and clear, I've still got a way to go though.

Here's my other WIP is in early stages, but will hopefully not take too long.


 I think you may guess what it is :)

A friend brought me a couple of pretty china mugs, and it just so happens I already had a lovely jug to match the pattern.




Not much matches, so what a lovely coincidence :)

Before I pop off to cook some tea, I'll just share some more puppy pics. 2 have homes now, just 2 more happy homes to find. So cute, with big floppy ears... and big appetites!




Take care

  1. Oh, heart wrenching having to let the puppies go to new homes, I wouldn't be able to do it. Thank goodness you've got your other lovely doggies to cuddle. Love the cushion. I've got some fabric cushions and some crochet ones, but everyone always makes a bee line for the crochet ones. How lovely that the chine mugs match your jug, what a coincidence.
