Inspired by a fellow crochet blog Haken...en meer 
a Dutch girl and a fabulous crochet artist adore her sofa picture it inspired me to try her circular cushion
l'd like to do a bedroom makeover to look like her cosy sofa

I finished my larger drawstring version of her cushion late last night

goes well with the other two on the sofa in my craft room l think...
the old ones are looking a bit worse for wear, they are well over 12months old and regularly slept on by the furballs
bit dark but taken late last night and it hasn't got a cushion inside it yet

After taking all the Christmas decorations down every where looks a bit bare so l added a couple of Anemones to the vase light

I found ONE box of half finished project that have inspired me to finish them and get creative but 
Blue Moon to finish first 
and then l think the ripple blanket... 
almost covers out 6' bed but still have a few rows to do...never again will l make anything so big!

Enjoy your day everyone
hugs xx
UPDATE: Asked permission first but Claire has kindly given me permission to use her sofa photograph to show you how wonderful it is
Thanks Claire
Isn't it gorgeous?...
don't think l have quite got the colours right in my drawstring version but as close as l could get without buying MORE yarn! lol
hugs to Claire xx
