Spring/Summer Cuhsion

HI, I have not posted here for a while as I have been concentrating on a bit of quilting and taking part in a couple of Quilting Bees.
Here is a picture of my first ever crochet cushion cover.

I wanted a light and fresh cover to go on a cream chair that we have bravely put in the living room. The wool is left over from other projects and I saw a similar idea over at Attic24.

I wanted to make the back different, therefore having two cushions in one. The white wool is in fact 100% cotton yarn. I normally use it for making dish cloths and it was lovely to crochet with. I stitched the panels together and then finished off the edging with some picot stitch.
I still have a little bit of wool left so another project is in the pipeline.
More of the making can be seen on my blog.

  4. I love it. And it looks lovely on that chair. The colors are just right, not too bold and not to pale.
