I suppose I ought to explain. A dear friend of JJ's and mine was moving into a new place last week, and we wanted to give her a moving-in prezzie. When JJ last came to visit me, we had to satisfy our craving for pretty yarns of course, and whilst wombling around the wool shop, came across these lovely variegated yarns in the prettiest pinks and greens. Joy wanted to have a really girly girly pinky shabby chic guest room, so we thought we would both make her a pretty cushion, slightly different patterns but made with the same yarns. It was so much fun! I finished my cushion a week or so ago and soooooooooo wanted to post a photo of it, but of course, I couldn't do that and give the game away, Joy does read the blog!
I posted the cushion yesterday, and JJ's dad posted hers yesterday as well ( JJ is in Portugal at the mo, the cow, humph ), and Joy received them both this morning! So now I can finally post pictures of my labour of love for our lovely friend Joy. I was very tempted to keep it for myself, lol, because it would look perfect in the guest room in our cottage in France as well, but she is worth the sacrifice ;-). Oh, and I could of course make another one for myself, couldn't I? Good excuse to visit the shop again.
