Playing hooky with a cushion

We have not been out and about nearly as much this week as the weather has been a bit wet and yucky. We have been filling our time doing all the boring things such as getting summer haircuts and having the car serviced before we head off on holiday. There has also been much playing outside with friends when the weather has been nicer, leaving some time for Mummy to play inside with some wool and a metal stick ~ when she really should have been playing with an ironing board and some clothes instead!

I have been filling my time with some more lovely crochet and have managed to finish the front of my cushion cover. I have still got to sew in the rest of the pesky ends and then it will need to be blocked. I have put it on top of one of my other cushions to see how it would look and am quite pleased with the results. At the moment I think that I am going to crochet the back of the cover in just the green colour and then join the two sides together with a pretty edging.

I have also been trying out a lovely flower pattern from Attic 24 and have managed to make some little crochet flowers which may end up on the front of my cushion or as a pretty little flowery garland.

I hope that you all enjoy your weekend ~ Have Fun :O)

That final photo is wonderful - I can't wait to see how the finished cushion looks.

We're heading in your direction (just as you go on holiday, perhaps). The boys and I are going to be visiting my parents from tomorrow night, for a week.
