A triple double - take...

Greetings! So, I got back from Wales last week. A fabulous week was had by all, and as the weather wasn't too peachy (I'd secretly planned it that way), i was rather productive too. I managed to finish off my little aprons, and a cushion with granny squares on one side, and (slightly circus-like) red striped fabric on the other.






(We may have got a little carried away with snapping these little beauties. MANY photos were taken.
 I blame where we stay in Wales for being far too pretty to resist.)


I would normally crochet the backs of my cushions in cream, or make the back the same as the front, but i thought i'd use the great fabric i'd bought in Machynlleth as a backing instead. It was a bit tricksy to sew, but worth it i think...


SO, I got home, and was rather excited to find issue 13 of Mollie Makes on my doormat, where it had patiently waited for almost a week. I must say... I did SEVERAL double takes on reading it, and wondered at first if maybe i was just a little over-tired from my long car journey home...

My first double take was the tutorial of Ilaria Chiaratti's crocheted cushion...
Even some of the colour combinations are the same!
 So, once i'd finished with that double take, i moved swiftly onto my second - This was the 'Ooh, I Could Do That' section which was Kerry Morgan's mason jars...

Again - rather similar i'd say...

Now, the final double take wasn't such an obvious one, but it amused me none the less...
I handmade my bouquet for my wedding back in August. I was originally going to use collected brooches as well as buttons, but it was going to be rather expensive that way. Instead i went for paper flowers, with buttons as the centre...
So, there you have it. My triple double take! Spooky, eh? 
Hopefully, the aprons and new cushion will be in Zoe's fabulous Love From Hetty and Dave shop in Pokesdown soon.
I also have some lovely commissions on the go at the moment, along with some other bits and bobs so i shall be back with more shortly

Cheerio for now
