I used a jumper from a charity shop for the back, and got a 14" square cushion pad off eBay. And this is what it looks like finished off:
I'm now in the process of finishing off another cushion cover, this time mostly in black (yes, I know there's a square missing at the top):
I have a black jumper for the back of this one. I'll show you when I've finished it.
I'm also making some granny triangles. Not sure what I'll use them for at the moment, but they'll make some interesting shapes when sewn together. Perhaps a scarf or something.
The circles and stars blanket/throw/thing is slowly getting larger, I'll post a picture next time.
And, frankly, this is what I've been doing for most of this year so far. Not much to talk about which is why I've not been blogging. I've kind of fallen into a bit of a fugue state - I have life full of ennui at the moment. I'm sure there's stuff I could write about but, you know, I just can't be arsed right now. I don't seem to have that ability to make good copy out of everyday life so I hope you'll forgive me if my blogging gets a bit sporadic.
TLH and I did, though, go and stare at our new niece this afternoon. I presented her with the crochet baby blanket I made specially for her - she looked suitably thrilled:
Because she came out bum first, her head doesn't have that weird squashed and pointy look, although she's still channelling Winston Churchill:
She didn't have much to say for herself although her dad says she's perfected farting already. Can't think how she can possibly be related to me then.....
