Cushion cover for my mum

Hi all, well this is my first blog post of 2016 and I hope you all had a great time celebrating and welcoming in the New Year. It's my birthday New Years Eve and we had spent the day in Weymouth getting rather wet and cold so it was good to have a early night which was a first in 23 years. Sure sign I am getting old lol.
Anyway was itching to do a crochet cushion cover after my friend Sandra made one and told me it was easy!
Luckily for me it was easy once I had unpicked it several times and Sandra sorted it out when it started to go wonky lol

This is the back of the cushion and I was chuffed to have lined it up when I crocheted it shut

I literally finished it the night before she came down for Christmas as I had picked up a larger cushion base than intended. But she loved it so that was all that matters though she has asked for a matching one. I told her yes she can but not until Christmas 2016 ;-)
Right off to try and make some birthday cards before I am back at work on Monday, happy crafting all x


  1. Well done Kay, I'm rubbish at crochet. I think you have the same chair as me. Glad you had a great birthday. Weather was dry but cold. Annx

  2. What a beautiful cushion cover, especially as it is a first. I tried crocheting and gave up again very quickly! :o)
