Apple Blossom Dreams CAL ~ Ta Da!

Bonsoir tout le monde,

I have finished my pillow from the Apple Blossom Dreams Crochet-a-Long (I posted about it here):

Image

It’s made entirely out of stash items.  I do not have a large yarn stash.  I have the opposite problem of most people ~ they’re trying to get rid of yarn, and I’m always on the hunt for more!  But I managed to find enough yarn for this pillow.  (I haven’t actually made the pillow form yet, I stuck my other CAL pillow inside for the pictures.)

Image

It’s a granny square on the back, as you can see.  I crocheted in the ends as I went; that would have been a nightmare to weave in.  (My least favorite part of crocheting is weaving in the ends.)

Image

The buttons were donated by my generous mother, who has the awesomest button stash ever!  I don’t know why I am so fascinated with buttons, but I could spend hours browsing through a box of them.

This has been a really fun crochet-a-long.  Thank you, Apple Blossom Dreams, for doing it!

    It’s beautiful, well done for getting it done so quickly, I am doing an afghan and a cushion cover at the same time, no wonder it takes me ages, I should try doing one thing at a time haha, I love buttons too, I have jars full of them but I can never find the ones I need for any given project so of course I go out and buy more. 🙂

      Thank you very much! I have the same problem. I am a huge procrastinator, and I like instant gratification, so I’m much more suited to making pillows than afghans! (My mini-afghan took me over a year to make.) I’m glad I’m not the only one that’s obsessed with buttons! 😀
