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
