Mollie Makes Crochet Cushion CAL

Hello to you...
Hope you're all well?
This week has seen me turn 29 - my last year of being a twenty something! My naughty shoulder is playing up. I really hope it isn't RSI. I can't not crochet! And we've a new arrival in the shape of a feral kitten...
So, another busy week since I last posted.
So as you know, I've been joining in with ladybirddiaries and chrissiecrafts with their blooming crochet along.
I've really enjoyed the company through my various projects.
Last week saw me finish my CK inspired blanket so I've been twiddling my thumbs and wondering what shall I make next? My partner bought me this book about a month ago and I was instantly drawn to the granny square cushion...
Quite a simple pattern so not too much concentration necessary.
The book is great, full of colourful patterns and comes with a really cool folksy daisy free gift.
My partner bought mine from here
Well worth £5.
I've made my front panel - 36 squares all joined together. Back panel next.
A smaller project is welcome after the blanket.
Here is photo of my favourite birthday present - a genuine 1950's print of The Green Lady. I absolutely love it! My partner bought it for me and knows me so well...I'll stop being slushy now!

 Today my daughter, her friend and I carved pumpkins. We all enjoyed the messiness of it!
I hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend.
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments about my blanket and also making me feel less mad RE my daughters rash...
A warm welcome to my new followers - lovely to have you here with me!

  6. Belated Happy Birthday wishes to you lovely FB, and such lovely gifts to receive: your Green Lady will go very nicely with your 'Tina' I think?
    I hope that troublesome shoulder is soon back to A1 condition - what a pest when pain threatens to intrude on crafting time; it's really not allowed!!! Welcome to your new addition; these cats surely do know how to pick a good home Maybe you'd better watch out for that lovely and elegant new cushion-in-progress incase he/she takes a fancy to it! Have a great weekend FB! Warm hugs, Joy xo
