One-A-Day...Leandra's cushion (cont.)

25 squares have been finished!  

Plus four rows of edging...

AND I decided what to do with the back of the cushion.

Not a stripey crochet back.

Not a grand granny back.

Not a plain fabric back.

But...

After rummaging around a bit in the scraps that I know I have that's doing nothing in my trunk, I came up with...

THIS:


How's that for a perfect match?

Lovely piece I found somewhere as a sample of a discontinued line and wanted to do something with for how many years now...

So work will start tomorrow and I'll need to come up with a new One-a-Day project :-)

But first, I met up with two great hooky friends today:


That's me, left, after just finishing the edging on LC.
Adele, with her lovely hexagon blanket (I love the greenish-grey background! It's called Pepper, from elle Pure Gold, and I see it in my future).
And Loma, whom I wrote about in my previous post, starting out on a Roses and Daisies blanket. 

And the hard work washed down with an 18th ave cappo.

Thank you, as always, to Carole for hosting the One-a-Day group!  Let's a have a look at the other projects.
