WIPs and the finished cushion

The cushion is finished!  I’m really pleased with it but before I show you it I want to share with you another WIP that is currently haunting me and the crochet bed scarf I made last year when we finally got round to redecorating our bedroom.

Lets start with the bedscarf.  I love purple.  It’s just feminine enough without being too girly and there are so many gorgeous shades to choose from.  I also love crocheting in rounds using this triple stitch especially when the work gets big enough to keep your knees warm 🙂  I made it just wide enough to cover the top of the bed and then used a single colour to create the draping panels for either side of the bed.  I made these side panels just long enough to match the duvet so the scarf lies nice and flat on the bed. Actually when I started it I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a scarf or a full blanket bit I’m glad it decided to to be a bedscarf.  It dresses up the bed and makes it look cosy and inviting without making it too warm.

On to the WIP.  One day soon it will be a bed scarf too and I’m sure it will be lovely.  My plan is to alternate the pink squares with black squares in a kind of a harlequin pattern.  Just another 15 black squares to go and I can start sewing in ends and sewing squares together.  I haven’t decided what to do about the edging yet, whether to fill in with half squares or not.  I quite like the zig zig effect.

And last but not least the jubilee cushion…drum roll…hope you like it 🙂 and thank you for reading x

  1. Wow, I love the purple bedscarf, the squares & the cushion cover – I love them all – you are very very talented!! For the new bedscarf, you could give it a simple dc edging to keep the zigzag effect, which is lovely and unusual! I will come back to visit your blog more often. Ali
