Granny Squares And Snowdrops

As promised here is my granny square cushion, pattern courtesy of Lucy at Attic 24.

As mentioned before the yarn is not very nice and the colours are a bit harsh but I'm pleased with how the finished cushion looks.

It goes well with the ripple stitch cushion on my sewing chair which you can see has to share space with a spare bed. O for a room just for me to sew in!
My next creative venture is going to be the Pin Cushion Caddy from Anna Maria Horner's book, Seams to Me. I'll try and take some photos as I'm going along so that I can show you how it goes.

On a different note, on Friday I went to Waterperry Gardens with my Husband. It was cold but bright and sunny with a light dusting of snow. We went to see these...

There were not as many as we were expecting but we were told that everything is about 2 weeks late this year. Despite that we had a lovely walk and the best fruit scones we've ever had in the tearoom.

See you soon.
