Before the drama of the night though last night I did have a ta-dah moment myself! First picture is the cushion from the other week along with a stool I scored a couple of weeks back.
One covered stool! I am a bit excited about it. I was using a pattern of Lucy's again... for the flat circle. Only problem was that it was too much circle. I had almost the whole top done. & I had way too much for the cover. I needed to remove 2 whole segments of the shaping to make it flat. So I undid it. Rolled all my little colours up & put them in a row to use again. Then I had to refigure it. I am pretty mathemically challenged at the best of times, but I finally figured out a new centre size & the additional stitches needed to make a not to much circle but an octagon. It went flat! Yay for me! I did follow the theory behind Lucy's circle though so I still did hdc all over. I actually like those the best I think. It is nice & filled in as a result. Then I stopped increasing at the top edge & it went down just nicely. Then I did a few extra rows below the bottom of the seat & added elastic through the second last row & voila.... one lovely fitted seat cover! It only took the week really. The week before I worked on the other top that was too big. This week I was also really busy so I think that is pretty good! Got to love the speed of crochet!
The pic below shows another granny square cushion cover on the back of the chair. I did that the weeks before the stool cover. I haven't been able to finish it off into a cover yet as I don't have a jumper to chop up yet for the backing. So eventually it will be done & they all match so pretty. If you haven't worked it out, they are all done in the same 8 colours. It's only acrylic but now I know I can do it I may need to go & try some wool crochet next! But not yet... Still stash busting. I was very good in March. I spent $5.50 on some wool at the op shop & that is the only stash I got all month! Well done me! It was hard at times.
Ok, I had better go & start some food prep. Actually I had better go & change the clocks so I don't keep giving myself a shock each time I look.
Happy Easter to you
