Christmas FO

Hello, I hope you have been keeping well and enjoying the holidays! I have been a busy person between working and getting christmas projects finished...very stressful! I have completed several christmas projects and I am going to show you one of my favourites.

This christmas present is a gift that I made for Andy's mum, to go with some of the colours in her livingroom. I made this based on an overlay mandala pattern I had for the front design and the rest of it I made up as I went along. The overlay mandala part of the cushion was the easiest part, crocheting to make the front and back meet however provided a challenge for me. I definitely did fudge it a little, hooking two stitches from the front into one at the back. It took me a month to complete this one as I was crocheting it in turn with all the other projects I had to complete as well!
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK (Teal, Sunshine)
Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK (Terracotta - 18014)
King Cole Baby Comfort DK (Baby Peach)
& Wendy Sorrento DK (Cream)
Hook: 4mm

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and that you all received lovely gifts! Here is what I got for christmas from different friends, I can't wait to browse through them for project inspiration in 2013!!
Take care!

  7. The cushion is fabulous. I bet she loved it. I know how you can get caught up in Christmas gifts. I made all but two of my gifts this year. But I do love giving homemade things. It is a sign that you really care.

    You have lots of inspiration in your own Christmas gifts by the looks of it.

    Wishing you a new year filled with joy and creativity Hazel!
