Old Fashioned Granny Squares

 Stash Buster 3

Stash buster again (although not as much as would like). I have a lot cotton yarn in about every color, a mountain that seems to grow every year. Some weeks ago I found a couple of Delfts Blue tiles in an unpacked moving box. I inherited them from my grandmother and because I really love the tiles I want to hang them somewhere in my living room. Matching with the tiles I made the Canal House Cushions, but after finding another small cushion I thought of making another cushion in old fashioned granny squares, in the same colors. Yarn enough, so after some digging in the stash I found the right colors.

This is the result. Matches perfectly with my other cushions. The mountain of yarn hasn't dwindled very much after this project, but it's a start.

  2. What a beautiful pillow! I've been looking for new pillows for my couch. You've inspired me to save money and make my own! What a great way to use up all that yarn I've been hoarding for years. :D

  6. Your pillow is beautiful! I love the variety of your squares. I crochet simple g.s. dishcloths while my SO is driving us places. Great gifts, donation for our church bazaar, and inclusions in my theme baskets. This year I did 4 row ones to go with homemade facial scrub. My mom made us kids each an afghan--long before weighted blankets were in vogue!
