Follow-up Friday – “The Candy Cushion”

maRRose - CCC - The Candy Triangle Cushion-20Ahhh….. the happy feeling of another “ta-dah” and being able to tick one more old wip off the list! Presenting the latest triangle cushion, my “Candy Cushion”; to tell you the truth, I’m quite chuffed with how it turned out ……

I used my own tutorial to make the triangles, and crocheted 7 double ones, 6 single ones and 4 double half ones – if that makes any sense.
Making the double ones saved considerable time and effort in the sewing department (not my favorite when it comes to assembling triangles). I now “just” had so sew the diagonal sides together.

Finally, I listed it in my Etsy-shop, hoping it will find a good home soon ;).

He’s home since last Saturday, and slowly getting a bit better – meaning in less pain – and able to go short distances using his crutches and iWalk.
