A bit of crochet
First things first; I am overwhelmed by your generous response to my return to Blogland, after a four month absence. It was totally unexpected, but oh so appreciated! Thank you all. You truly are the best!
Secondly; it seems I may have upset some of you by simply disappearing from the scene back in February, without as much as a word of farewell. For this I am truly sorry, as the last thing I wanted was to hurt a feeling.
And now to what I have been up to in my absence. I have taken quite a fancy to crocheting cushions. They are quick to make and when done they do make an impact. The first three photos show one I made out of left over wool, and includes most of the colours I have at some point been working with.
Now this one is the result of my attempt, back in February, to use the colour orange, that I had a craving for at the time. Truth be told I am quite pleased with the result, and today this colourful creation resides in a house overlooking the Irish sea.
So now I am working on a new one, quite similar to the one above, only this time I am using more yellow and less orange (not that I do not like the orange, only that I do not seem to have more of it left in my wool stash!)
And I am thinking this one is a keeper. At the same time I am wondering what a whole crochet blanket in these colours would look like? Not too bad, I like to think. Food for thought...
