Autumn Cushion - the story so far...

Hello again! 

I thought I would just drop by to give an update on my Autumn Cushion

Work is definitely in progress...

I love making little piles of the granny squares...

And here is the proposed layout...

I so love this simple project - the squares are so easy to do.  I can cheerfully hook these up AND chat away to my bestest friend when she visits me for our crafty evenings.  They are also great to do whilst watching The Great British Bake Off.  The only bit I'm not so keen on is sewing in all the ends, but into every life a little rain must fall I guess!

And, still on the autumn theme, the partners for the Autumn Glow Swap, so kindly organised once again by the lovely Blueberry Heart have been announced - and I am highly delighted to be partnered with Amanda from Crafty in the Med!  I love this swap so much, and have already started squirelling around finding things for my parcel.  Speaking of squirreling and Great British Bake Off, did you see the Secret Squirrel Cake - it looked amazing!



  1. Liking the cushion colours. I crochet ends in as I go using slip stitch then cut yarn and pull tight through last loop and trim close to knot. I usually slip stitch about an inch finishing on trebles.

  2. That is looking great, my friend! Today turned to Autumn just like that *snap*! Rainy, cloudy.. ugh. Makes me want to pull out some Fall decor. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Beautiful--it is SO wonderful to see autumn colors again! Can hardly wait to see them in our landscape too:)

  4. Lovely- I'm looking into crocheting the ends as you go! :) x

  5. Hello Helen

    Many thanks for the mention and like yourself I'm already musing over what will go in my swap parcel......a bit of this....a bit of that.....mmmm...we'll see :-)
    Granny squares never fail to delight me and the colours you have chosen look great together! The ends .....ahhhh I so hate the ends!

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  6. Love the yarn colors. I am a bit obsessive compulsive about ends, I make myself sew in each and every one at the end of a round, so I do not have hoards of them to do at the end. It is my least favorite part of crochet, but done at the end of a round it seems less daunting.


I love to read your comments!
