Beach Combing Cushion

Remember the blanket I did in lockdown? The Beach Combing Blanket CAL from the amazing Coastal Crochet?

Well I had lots of cotton yarn left so I decided to do a matching cushion to sit alongside the blanket on my bed.

I did a simple C2C backing for the cushion and lined it with a old pillow case then stuffed it with fibre fill.

I decided to add a scalloped edging, regretted it once I started but glad I persevered with it.

I picked my favourite square from the whole blanket and and to juggle the colours around a bit but very happy with the outcome.

Good start to 2020

Happy Saturday everyone, don’t know about you but it doesn’t really feel like the weekend does it?

During the festive break I did that one thing all crafters shouldn’t do, head to Hobbycraft, just for a look ha ha.

To be honest with you I was really well behaved, I literally brought one ball of yarn and a piece of felt, and didn’t actually get what I went for, how did that happen?

Anyway what a ball of yarn it was, I wanted to make something for myself to start the year off so I was thinking infinity scarf / cowl maybe? I didn’t want anything to thick as the yarn is quite chunky itself so I made this one.

I had so much left over I decided to make a matching ear warmer, I’m not much of a hat person, but needed some large buttons to make them the feature. I found these in my go to store and thought they were perfect.

But look how much I still have left, gloves maybe? make the full set, what do you think?

So on the 4th day of 2020 I’ve made these, another Yoda and started two more Baby Yoda’s, wow that’s good going for me, lets hope this continues throughout the year.

Have a great weekend everyone!

It’s the small things in life sometimes isn’t it?

I ordered a wool-jeanie from Amazon last week and I love it, just genius!

Takes a little getting use to and you need to ensure that it’s on the same level you are working, but works brilliantly. No more chasing my yarn around the floor. I’ve tried the homemade baskets, clips on bowl edges, wooden spools etc but this is by far my favourite for ease of use.

Anyone else using one and love it as much as me?

If not, I would highly recommend investing, the strong magnets hold it firmly in place whilst still allowing easy spinning for continual work without stopping to release some yarn to continue.

Take a look

Small things are sometimes best shared 🙂
