Flowers & Fun

Finally, finally - I have finished the flowery cushion. The self-control needed to finish stuff instead of racing off to make the next idea was huge. In Norfolk huge is pronounced HOOGE and that sums up how big a task it was to actually go back to something when my mind was wandering over to new colours and designs. I'm really pleased I did get it done though as it looks delicious sitting on our small sofa in a room that is part workroom, part playroom, part general dump it here on the way to somewhere else room.

I love the back so much with it's old many washed blanket that I have plans for more of these cushions with a bit of felty applique to jolly them up. I still haven't decided on how to secure it - hidden poppers or buttons with crocheted loops to tie. That means I haven't actually finished really doesn't it. Oh well never mind, it's there, it looks pretty and it's very very comfy to lie against.

After finishing the flowery cushion in the morning we headed off into another sweltering day to see friends at a free park fun day. It was a day of huge bugs, crafty fun with glitter and glue and generally having a great time playing.

We walked into the park from the bottom end by the boating lake. It's one of my favourite parks as it is a 1930's municipal one and has only recently been renovated. So quiet up this end today as all the noisy families are at the other end. It also reminds me of some of the parks I loved in Brighton as I strolled hugely pregnant with Mr Bun and dreamed of playing there with two little girls.

Away from the peaceful history and my daydreams of ladies in tea dresses strolling along arm in arm and bands playing to the families of yesteryear was a park filled with so much fun.

We took home rockets and glittery stars which are already flying above their beds. Another day to store for memory.

  4. That is a beautiful and scrumptious cushion! well done you on the self control - I clearly have zero levels myself because I am now on with another cushion cover as I write - and now Ive seen yours, well, the creative juices are once again churning and my mind seems to be mysteriously thinking up colour schemes and when I can next get to the wool shop...!

    Clearly this crochet lark is a terrible disease.

    But so much fun! :)

    Love Julia xxx

  5. I love your fab cushion! I'll have it after Beki,please!!

  6. The cushion is lovely with those ice-cream colours. I can just imagine those 1930's scenes you are describing, what a lovely place. We ventured out to Southwold yesterday, we were very patient and drove round and round for 35 mins, the place was heaving. Then we drove round again, there just wasn't anywhere to stop the car so we had to leave. Never mind perhaps another day when the madness is over.

  7. That is one of the nicest crochet cushions I have seen in blogland, just lovely and very pretty colours, well done you! whats next?! X

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
