Hi everyone, have you all had a lovely weekend? I've spent mine finishing off
the cushions and blanket/throw that I knit and crocheted. It's been such a long time
since I knit or crocheted anything so I thought that I'd better ease my way into it
by making something really easy like a throw, then I decided to make matching
cushions, but rather than leave them plain I added some crocheted flowers with
wooden button centres in matching yarn.
I made the blanket/throw using 500g Ivory DK, 500g Mink DK & 500g Chocolate DK
I crocheted all 3 yarns together. Using 10mm crochet hook, I crocheted 70
chain stitches, then single stitched each row adding an extra chain stitch at each end
Here are the crocheted flowers that I made in each of the colour yarns with wooden
The next cushion I made I decided to use some really chunky wool that I had left over and just
knit it up and added some wooden buttons that my clever hubby turned for me on his wood
Here are the buttons my hubby made for me :) of course they did need sanding off and
waxing before I could use them but I just couldn't wait to take a piccy of them, which
is just so like me, I can't wait for anything lol hehehe.
My hubby's now in the process of
creating a wooden shell for my newly decorated bathroom, I've been trying to get towels,
and shower curtain and other bits and pieces to tie in with the pictures that I made a couple
of months ago now which were a DT make for Aurora Wings, but It's been so difficult
to find just what I'm looking for. When it's all done I will pop some pictures on here I
I would like to enter these into the following challenges.
