The leftover yarn from my Garden Patch Granny Afghan has been sitting in this basket in the living room collecting dust for over six months.
Finally I was able to call off the search after I received this stunning book for Christmas and saw this gorgeous pillow. This was it, the perfect project, a Sunburst Motif Cushion.
Garden Patch Granny Afghan that I was going to take a break from projects involving squares that need joining, since joining all the squares for the blanket nearly killed me, but making a pillow doesn't seem so bad. Yes I can do it, there will not be that many squares to join, and it will look lovely when it is all finished. Plus, I have always wanted to make a crochet cushion.
I have been working on this slowly over the last week, often derailed by fatigue and the need to work on my tired craft, but it is coming along.
I will need 16 squares in total for the front of the pillow, and have these five completed so far.
I am excited to see how this pillow looks on my sofa...especially how it mixes with the ones that are already there.
It feels really good to have a larger project on the go, something to really sink my hook into and get really excited/obsessed about. Something to bring me through the rest of winter.
