Pinning Cushion

i bought Lacy Crochet last week and when it came in the mail, all other projects were put on hold. it called for crochet thread, as opposed to yarn. grrrreat, yet another thing for me to get crazed about. the projects are cute and sweet and are supposed to only take a few hours to complete. it took me about 2 days. i had to learn how to read the diagrams and abbreviations. my first day i thought of chucking the book out the window. i am not a fan of how the directions are written, i'm used to being spoonfed the lines, but the diagrams are pretty helpful so whatevs. i made a pin cushion for my cousin. it's supposed to measure about 2.5" but mine came out double that size. i'm still not used to the tension and all that. it's two granny squares together and joined by stitching over the edges, and a small cotton cushion in the middle. i'd never made granny squares before but i think it came out sweet and thankfully buu is always a fan of getting little treats, hopefully she'll like this one.

  1. You're the second to talk about this book! I'm going to have to check it out. Squares sounds right up my alley. I like the idea of a crocheted pin cushion... and yours looks really cute!
