~My mom is planing a huge move soon to her lake house.. she has tons of “extra” furniture that she needs to find a home for. She had a rocker and I needed a rocker. It was comfortable.. but .. I wasn’t loving the cushion.
So, I made a new cushion. I thought it was pretty cute. I used the quilt as you go technique from Patchwork Style. Penny did a sew as you go quilt a long using the same technique. I think whoever thought up this idea is really clever. I am thinking of doing a quilt for my bed using this technique, but I am not completely sold. Anyway, it is great for cushions and pillows! Which is what I made next, because the crochet pillow was not working for me either.
~see, not really cute!
~here is the pillow. Much better!
Here is my “after” I think it is better. I love, love, love this rocker. I love to rock. I sit in this chair and watch my shows and I crochet. The little pillow above? It was my test swatch for Lucy’s Granny Stripe Blanket. When I saw her blanket, I knew I wanted to make one. It is not a fast project, but it is a really good one for sitting and rocking, and watching the Housewives!!
