The weekend has been awash with sunshine, aahhhhhhhh what a welcome sight. Today, I awoke with a spring in my step, ready for a day of doing nothing much at all, apart from taking full advantage of the natural light, camera in hand. On days like this I get the urge to declutter, to simplify, to get rid of mess. I feel full of enthusiasm, and optimism!!
Once again I have something new to show you. A wee project that was born from my recent reacquaintance with using organic cotton for my snuggly mitts. Some time ago I bought some Sublime Yarns Organic Cotton DK in a selection of gorgeous pastel shades.
I bought them with no project in mind. The colour & texture was the greatest pull. But after much deliberation I decided to crochet up a cushion cover.
The colours lend themselves perfectly to a country cottage setting don't they? I suppose it was my way of bringing a little of that into my 1930's semi. I would love to have a little rural idyll somewhere, all cosy in the winter but full of light and charm in the summer. With a veggie patch out back.
Despite being a colour fiend, I do like to work in pastel shades. I love all the bubblegum and cotton candy coloured yarns available too. So I decided a good way of using up all the leftovers of the Sublime and Debbie Bliss cottons I had, would be to create another granny patchwork.
Not sure whether I'll have enough for a blanket mind, but I should definitely have enough for another cushion. 'Bout time I had a Country Cottage Cushion version 2! What do you think?
One day (hopefully) my Country Cottage Dreams will come true..........
Lots of love x
