As it has been a little dreary - weather wise - I thought I would share a little colour.  Here are some of my latest crochet makes.  Simple granny square cushions in various sizes backed with vintage/vintage style fabric and fastened with vintage buttons.  Very simple but very colourful.

Rico Cotton Aran Weight was used from Cucumber Patch 

Target squares and granny squares

Vintage buttons 

Vintage feedsack and barkcloth

Co-ordinated spotty ribbon trim

Feather cushion pad

Very bright and cheerful

Cath inspired colour scheme

Seaside blues and lemons

Ice cream shades

Bright tangerine, yellow and blues

All lined up

After making the Cornwall bags I made another with vintage images of Scarborough on it. Its made from canvas, old cloth, vintage and re purposed fabrics.

Oh Mrs Jones - look what I got from the tip - it was in the front of someone's car and I was brave enough to ask if it was going in the skip. Not if you would like it was the reply.  It is working but has no foot pedal at the moment so i'm hoping Louise at has one for me to test it would then I will source a new one.

Hope you all have a good weekend, we are having a girly one as K has trotted off to London to visit a friend so we will be eating sweets, ice cream, popcorn and watching chic flicks to our hearts desire and we may indulge in a little light shopping also.  Ahh bliss.

I seem to be the only person in blogland who can't sew! Love the fabrics you have used for the cushions and bags.
Eating sugar and watching chic flicks would be my perfect weekend entertainment. Hope you make it off the sofa to fit in a bit of retail therapy too :)
