I love colours and I love granny squares. I think you might have noticed this by now.
Anyway, whilst distracting you all with mesmerising pictures of rainbow-coloured granny squares like this:
I was secretly working away on two stacks of 16 squares that each became a cushion cover. These squares involved very ... um ... daring colour schemes. Wine red with lime green. And sky blue. Plus shocking pink. For example.
I have to branch out every now and again and try a few new colour combinations.
The result is this: two cushion covers that are surprisingly harmonious in their colourfulness. I backed them with a purple fleece blanket which I bought for a song, and sneakily found a way to create a neat and practical backing that can be achieved by even the most sewing-challenged - or more accurate for me: sewing sloths.
(I know I'm not alone in this, so never fear, a tutorial will follow in the coming days.)
