Crochet WIP




progress on my flower cushion cover. yay! I've finished the squares, decided to add a few uni coloured blocks and a little touch of yellow. it just needed that. 
I crocheted the individual squares together, light grey was planned for it but it became all too much of a grid, so I went with dark grey instead. light grey ended up as the outer border, nice and simple two rounds of single crochet. it is all blocked and ready to be sewn to a fabric cover. 

with the left over yarn bits I whipped up this rather simple and large stripe cover for a matching cushion on the couch. the last row of each colour block is done with a bobble stitch. not as fancy as the flower cushion, but I like how they go together and each get their own attention. 
the fabric cover for the stripes is done already, so I know what I'm doing this week!

have a lovely week yourself

  4. Mooi - ik vind het zo leuk dat de bloemetjes er in reliëf op liggen, da's weer eens iets anders als de typische granny squares !

You always do things that would never occur to me and yet I love completely, like those stripes with the line of bobbles, I've never seen that done before and it looks amazing. And of course you know how much I love and admire your colour play! Wonderful stuff nad enjoy the rest of your week.

  11. Mooie kleuren! Dat geel geeft inderdaad wat extra's. Ik heb zelf ook een kussen van deze vierkantjes gemaakt, maar met heel andere kleuren. Ziet er heel anders uit zo.
