ages ago i made a patchworky, embroidered blanket for the end of our bed but to my shame i never measured it or anything and when i put it on the bed ready to swell with pride i was majorly disappointed to see that it didn't quite fit across it! so i cut it up to make cushions out of it like so:
and so then i was left with a big empty space at the bottom of our bed again so i made this patchwork blanket and that also didn't really fit very very well but i just made a massively chunky border around it so it hangs down quite nicely- i was not prepared to lose another blanket to cushions!
i apologise if the quality of the photos isn't great, my iPhoto isn't working properly!
i also recently had a poorly spell and had to stay on the sofa for days on end so aswell as learning to crochet, i embroidered this cushion:
now i don't know a lot about embroidery, i made up my own 'technique' so i am probably doing it all wrong but i sure do love it and is most probably a million times faster than KNITTING a cushion, i am the worst knitter ever! well that's it for now, just thought i'd catch you up on what's been happening in my house!!
