Finally . . . I’ve finished 1 cushion front! I know that doesn’t technically count as “done”, but it’s “done” enough for me. This has taken me a fair bit longer than I thought it would. I wanted a fairly solid effect (not too open like granny squares).

I’m pretty happy with the result, but my plan for 4 cushions (front and back crocheted) may need to be slightly modified. Perhaps a different back . . . perhaps not all of them complete this year . . .

My daughter doesn’t think so!!!

I’ve been stitching away on Block 5

Catalicious Block 5

and Block 6

of Bronwyn Hayes‘ Catalicious BOM and I think I’m almost done!

My plan was to make a throw for the end of the bed, where our cat spends most of her time . . .

I’ve pieced the blocks and now the top is done. I just need to quilt and bind it . . . and that will be about the first thing actually finished this year!

Many thanks to Bronwyn for putting up a block each month – there are still another 6 to go, but for me I’ve done what I set out to achieve. I’ve enjoyed the quiet stitching on these blocks and I’m sure that the cat will take up residence pretty quickly!

Sometimes it looks like this . . .

But at the moment it looks like this . . .

I love both – one view calls to me and says “come out and enjoy the day” . . .
the other says “light the fire, grab a needle and thread and snuggle in”.

What does the view from your window say to you?
