Feeling all Ripply and giddy today.
Have had a most fabulous morning :: to the cafe for knit and natter, then an unexpected jaunt with Lovely C to a wonderous shop in a village a few miles away for some retail therapy (more about that tomorrow, I am still reeling from that experience!).
I've been finishing off my ripply cushion cover today. The ripplesome crochet side had been completed some time ago and I've had it sitting on the arm of the Big Chair like a rather zany modern day antimacasser. But the time had come to take it from flat form to cushy form.
So yesterday I set about assembling an envelope style back from a gorgeous pale blue thrifted lambswool sweater...
....then stitching on some colourful buttons. I've just noticed looking at the photo below that the last pink button I stitched on the left there is a bit wonky. Possibly rather too much nattering and latte-drinking and not enough concentrating this morning.
But they do look jaunty don't they, and a little wonkiness adds to the Homespun Charm. So if it's alright with you, I shall pretend it's deliberate.
And so finally, may I present to you my latest Cushy Cushion, with a flourish and a ta-dah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Ripple Cushion...........
I do love it so. I couldn't resist a little photo shoot of it sitting on the Ripple Blanket, just to indulge the full on Ripplesome Effect.
....a pile of Scrumptious Hooky Cushy Goodness.
And while we're talking Ripples, just to let you know I'm two-thirds through writing the Neat Ripple pattern/tutorial, it's taken much longer to write than I anticipated.
All being well and good, it'll be ready for tomorrow (Friday) I promise.
So until then, be happy, have fun, and smile :o)
Toodle-oooooo, see you all tomorrow
EDITED TO ADD :: 6:47pm The Neat Ripple Pattern is finished....it's in the usual sidebar place, or click here to find it. Enjoy!!!!
