Ends and new beginnings. ..

This week has been quiet and uneventful, though I guess that's not such a bad thing!
Hubby is still laid up, but hospital confirmed it was a ruptured Bakers cyst, he just need to sit it out to heal!
The beginning of the week was all about sewing in ends.

I got as far as I could with the crochet of my cotton ripple cushion,

so it was a mammoth task with all those colour changes to get the ends dealt with!

I have ordered some cushion inserts, so when they arrive I will be able to continue making this cover the right size and working out a border!

On one of my charity shop visits I spotted some yarn. Now this happened to coincide with an idea I had formed in my head, for a Spring cushion and this was a perfect backdrop colour! Anyway, as we all know a crafter can never have too much yarn!. I got started with it straight away and its such lovely yarn to work with a mix of acrylic, cotton and wool.

I've also had odd moments at lunch where ive managed to continue with my multi toned squares.

This weeks mood square...

A bit of blue, for my usual tired state, and a mix of pastel pink, peach and yellow for a steady week.

This is how my mood blanket is looking so far...
A whole 15 weeks in...

Its going to be a pretty hectic week, with the busiest days of the year at work coming up, but i'm sure i'll squeeze a little bit of crafting in, especially as its my vice for relaxation...
Until next week...


  1. I love the striped cushion you are making. And, the granny square colors are so pretty. It's alway fun to see what lovely things others are creating.

  2. Your cushion cover is going to be really lovely, and your mood squares go together really well.
