More Coziness

Well, now that the phone is cozy, and the tissues are cozy, there was, of course, an obvious next step…..

It started with some colourful squares of gorgeousness. Aren’t they pretty? And they do kind of look nice on Moo’s cushions too.

Moo wonders if this is something for her..

The squares were made from the Springtime Throw pattern, in “Cute & Easy Crochet” by Nicki Trench.

The yarn is 8ply 100% wool, various stash leftovers.

What is it, hiding camouflaged in the grass?

Bunting Happiness!

This was one of the first crochet books I bought, and is my absolute favourite  ~ Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench. And the projects are really very cute and very easy.

In the “Starting Out” section, there are some lovely little gifty type projects like the Round Stripy Cushion Cover, the Jam Pot Covers and the Floral Purse.

And here is the Knickerbockerglory Bunting. Isn’t it just the cutest?

The yarn I used is called Beetle by Moda Vera ~ a brand made by Spotlight (Oz and New Zealand I think). It’s 50% cotton and 50% acrylic. I don’t really love it, but it’s cheap and comes in great un-natural type colours!

I think next I’ll make some fabric bunting, just triangular flags cut with pinking sheers so no hemming.

I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday 🙂
