Crafty Weekend

Here at the Fairyglade we have had the best weekend, the kind where there is nothing pressing to do (if you ignore the ironing basket), nowhere in particular to go and no one of any importance about to descend on us for sunday lunch and all that entails, ie hoovering, dusting and the ironing basket! We have pottered and mooched about and read books and crafted and crafted and ....well....crafted some more.
I made myself a crochet roll because I am always loosing my hooks. It's a bit wobbly along the bottom but I don't mind. I used a different pattern than the the one I used for the stanley roll and found it much more fiddly.

Then I managed to get hold of a fleece blanket to finally make up a couple of cushion covers with my gorgeous, soft, snuggly crochet squares..what do you think?

They are now sat on the sofa in my garden room for all to see. I absolutely love them. They are just so bright and jolly and they really cheer me up when I enter the room.

There has been some christmas sewing too, but as some of the things are for presents, I can't show you any photos.

All in all, it has been a very productive two days.

Love the cushions - can just imagine sitting on that seat in your garden room. Must have a go at some like it myself!

I love how your cushions have come out and the crochet roll is inspirational.

We managed the beach on Saturday by pure accident and it was absolutely glorious though when we planned to do the same on Sunday, like you it was cold and grey so lots of mooching around here too!

Have a lovely week,

How beautiful your cushions are! My crcohet is on hold for a bit due to spending evenings decorating. Can't wait to do something with my granny squares!
Take care

Sounds like you had a great weekend, Dev, and your creations look lovely. Aah, all weekends should be like this, shouldn't they?
Have a sunny happy week

I really like your cushions - and maybe you can show us the other things after the presents have been given!

glad you received your swap package. Wow that took a while to get to you. I would have sent it earlier but I was on the road, we moved 2000 miles away.
