Yarn Along

Still working on the cushion cover for my daughter.  I have 6 strips completed, but I'm not sure exactly how many strips will cover the cushion form.  Of course, I ran out of the pink and green, but came up with another couple of colours that hopefully will work (turquoise and orange).  It would probably go together a bit better if the pink and green weren't so vibrant, but we'll see what happens ...

 
Currently reading 'A Summer of Permanent Wants' by Jamieson Findlay.  Picked it up at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago, but haven't gotten far enough into it to decide whether I'm liking it or not.

 
Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along over at Small Things.
 
 
 

Thanks for stopping by!
