Reasons to be cheerful

I crocheted this cushion for my best friend Dace's birthday in December. 

Then, during the summer, while we were at Eagle Bay, I imagined crocheting another one in sea colours. The sea down there is so beautiful, and sometimes the range of blues, greens and blue-greens in the water is unbelievable.
Pillowslips and cushion covers are the best projects for me right now. Small projects that are easy to finish! I've sorted out all my fabrics scraps and might make a couple of cushion covery quilty things this weekend.

:: In other news, Lily will be back next weekend, for two weeks, to help us celebrate a couple of big birthdays. And this time, when she goes back to Japan, I'm going with her.! Yee ha! Just for five or six days - perfect. DZ will be working in Hong Kong from mid-March and when he's finished, he'll hop up to Osaka to join us - I can't believe it! the bonus is that it'll be cherry-blossom time.

Those greeny-blues (or are they bluey-greens?) are some of my favourite colours.

Have fun with your daughter!

I wonder if those cherry blossoms won't inspire another color palette to crochet with! Lovely work, lovely adventures!

How did i not realise you are still blogging? Something made me think you'd given up!

Well, my posts are a bit few and far between these days, Suse. But I would like to keep it going.

That's just beautiful! I am so lacking talent in anything 'crafty'. Stunning shades. x
