I finally finished my first cushion for Enid van this week, though it didn't pan out exactly how it was meant to!
The design is called (I think) a Circle Motif Granny Square from the Granny Squares book by Susan Pinner.

Hubby decided to point out that he believed it needed a cream lining between the crochet and the cushion pad, so I envisaged sewing, by hand no less, the crochet piece, onto the cream piece, onto the backing and then finishing it all off with a row of buttons to fasten.

It went well until the very end when I realised that I needed to fasten the cream lining onto the crochet piece and then sew it all together else the lining would move and spoil the cushion.
I didnt' do that! I sewed the whole bloomin' thing together and then added the buttons for show. If it needs washing I'll just have to unpick the last row!
For my first crochet cushion though I think it looks okay - bright and cheery; definitely what's needed in the caravan!
I'm almost finished with the second one only I've run out of the wool that I was finishing off with! Typical. I'm hoping that my mum has a spare ball of it as that's where I got it from - fingers crossed!
I don't know if you have noticed but this is my 99th blog post! Where has the year gone? As promised, there's a giveaway for the 100th one! Exciting!
