One W.I.P down, many more to go


At last! I have finished a cushion cover that has been sitting around since ….

May (!) waiting to be sewn up – here it is back then with two other projects waiting for the finishing touches

My d-i-l asked if I could cover one of her cushions to go with the one on the left so that the twins could have a cushion each.




Of the colours I had with me when I was staying with them, we came up with this combination in Stylecraft Special DK: Aspen, Magenta, Cream, Citron, Bright Pink, and Soft Peach


A palette which I think has a Cath Kidston kind of lookDSC_0659

And will go so beautifully in the twin’s bedroom



Joining in with Ginny’s Yarn along.

Ginny asks us to mention a book we are reading, but I listen whilst crocheting rather than read and am loving the comedy ‘Bird Island’   on BBC Radio 4Extra a “New comedy by Katy Wix. Ben, a young scientist working in the sub-Antarctic, tries to adapt to the loneliness by keeping a cheery audio diary on his Dictaphone. With Reece Shearsmith” and Julian Rhind-Tutt.

  1. Love, love! We first connected through our love of crochet, your Portland blanket or so, if I remember correct, caught my eye…

    Is the last cushion tunisian crochet? Very nice!

  2. You always choose such beautiful colours Daffy. I love the twins’ wallpaper, it is gorgeous.
    BTW I listened to the link you gave me earlier. Really interesting and informative. Thanks for thinking of me xxx

  3. Pretty cushion that will go so well with the room colour scheme. You’ve made me think I ought to think of the radio rather than television when I am crocheting. Making the blanket isn’t too bad but some things go very badly with watching TV.

  4. Crafting along to the voice of J R-Tutt is my idea of heaven. The cushions are going to look so pretty against that delightful wallpaper.

  5. Lovely cushions and yes there is something of Cath Kidston about the colour palate. The wallpaper is great too.

    • Thanks Cathy, that wallpaper is so cute, I’m not a fan of wallpaper in general but this one is so fresh and light and cheerful.
      I’m thinking of trying out this palette again with a few extra colours but keeping the C.K. vibe – so maybe a flower design…..
