Making a crochet throw for my home.

I thought I'd make something for myself and it would be something for the home, home decor with a country ( I live in the countryside in a rural village) cosy feel. So I have started a crochet throw made with granny squares. You can see nearby the wool I have been using and I will adding more colours as I go.

Patchwork Shades of Blue Cushion.

I picked up a bundle of blue patterned cotton
squares in a charity shop and thought I'd make a patchwork cushion. I added a few from my own blue scrap material and cut them all to the same size.

I made this 18"x18" cushion with a soft plump polyester cushion pad.  I am pleased with it.  It will have a zip. I misplaced it when I took these photos then found it in the cushion!

 This patchwork blues cushion will soon be listed on Crafty Bags Folksy.

Beginning to sew it together.
