crochet along........................

I am joining in with Chrissie and Marianne again with their crochet along. Last week I made a granny square hot water bottle cover and I liked it so much I thought I would make another. I started to plan my colours and then I remembered that a few months ago I had started a granny square blanket and then got a bit bored and left the squares in a bag (does that sound familiar or am I the only one that abandons projects!)
I found the bag and decided to put the squares to good use. Firstly I made a another hot water bottle cover and then a sweet little cushion. I am pleased with the results but sadly the photos aren't very good quality - sorry.


I hope you like them and if you have time do pop over to see the other crochet along projects

I have also linked in with Ginny and Tami, sorry I don't have a book to share with you for Yarn along this week.

happy Halloween and talk soon x

  1. Glad you have been inspired by my hot water bottle construction, it really does make it easy doesn't it? What a great way to turn a WIP into two great projects. Jo x

  2. Well Sue, the photos might not be up to your own quality standards (although they look good to me!), but you have to admit that the crochet is really good. Love the idea that you could snuggle up with a hottie and a matching cushion! How cool is that. xx

  7. Both your projects are absolutely lovely Sue. I do this often too...start projects and then abandon them! But I like how you used your squares here, great ideas.

  8. OH your HWBC is looking so lovely and cosy, as is your gorgeous little cushion Sue. What a great way to use up those squares - and relieve any guilt about lack of completion of the blanket! Oh yes, I've been there and understand - right now I'm wondering how I can turn a small (not quite) hexy blanket into a cushion shape without undoing a heap of joins! Joy x

  9. Those cuddly items are justo reflect. I am working in ExACTLY the same way. From now on I am not going to worry about the "half dones" in the cupboard of doom under the stairs. Just pull them out at Christmas and whoop,whoop .
