Granny patch cushion

So this week its been back to reality and back to work. The first day back is always full of dread, and wishing the relaxation and free time could continue, but the week in reality hasnt been too painful.

This week I have been making some little crochet squares to go with my denim pocket.
I have chosen patterns out of the 200 crochet blocks book.
Granny Stripes

Circle in a Square


Chocolate Box

Old Vienna

They were enjoyable to make and not too taxing. When I started to lay them out though, I wasn't too sure whether they were a bit too mis-matched.

So I started to do matching blue edges to tie them all together.

This has improved it but I'm thinking I need to do so plain patches of denim, so the mix of fabric and yarn is more obvious...
Any opinions or suggestions would be welcome...

In the comedy thriller, a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by McPhee), who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he'll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst of all, moronic grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.

With a courageous and impetuous heroine leading the way, Disney Pixar sets out on yet another extraordinary journey—this time across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland in "Brave." The film features Kelly Macdonald as the voice of Merida, a skilled archer and the daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

  1. they are so pretty! I really love the pastel shades you've used, i think they work really well with the denim and i don't think it looks too mismatching :) x

  2. Such a gorgeous mix of colours - they are all so pretty. Hope you have a good week.

  3. You really do have an eye for colour combinations - your work is gorgeous!

  4. I really like that first one. Isn't it amazing the difference a border can make?

  5. Gorgeous crochet, I wish I could do that. Adding the same colour around each of the squares has really brought them together.
