Cushion Colourfulness

I have finally finished a project which I started last year and then it got put to the bottom of my WIP bag when I was busy making gifts, and I re-discovered it over the weekend.  It came from a pattern from the lovely Garden Bell - Kate coupled with colour inspiration from Attic 24 - Lucy I believe Kate called her blanket which she made with this stitch,  the Circus Parade and it is certainly colourful! 

I like to make a different back to my cushions so I can ring the changes

The stitch is fun ripple stich and there is a tutorial on Kate's blog.  I finished it off with a crochet ruffle around the edge - purple again - I always seem to finish and edge stuff in purple!!!!
So this cushion has taken its place with my other colourful creations - I suggest you put your sunglasses on the the next piccies - soooooooo much colour oh yes!!!!!!

and this is the back view

such a lovely jumble of colour!

Now a thank you to Mrs Twins - Sue, who mentioned me yesterday on her blog - and all the things I get up to, I felt tired just reading it - didn't realise I did that much!!!!!!!  Seriously, thanks Sue, please visit her blog and maybe make some squares to send to her for the blankets for the elderly, if you are able to.

Apart from making friends from all over the world, another great thing about blogging, is that it encourages you to complete all projects, start new ones and always be on the look out for trying a new craft - Im sure you all must feel like this - its great!!!!!!

Thank you for your lovely comments as always :-

Speak soon xx


  1. Love the new cushion it is fabby and it looks great next to all that other colourful hooky stuff on your sofa ~ just right for snuggling up with a nice cup of tea and some more crochet in hand :O)x

  2. What a lot of colour! Great cushion Kim. I used this stitch years ago making some pram blankets for the girls dolls. You have made a good job, and I think it's nice to have a different back, so you can have a change around. Well done!
    Hugs and Love SUex
