If you are anything like me, you will know all about those projects that seem to stay forever in progress. Most annoying... Especially as by the time I finish them, I have often changed my mind/don't like anymore/lost interest and moved onto something else.
A few weeks back however, I went back to Brittany to spend a few relaxing days with my Mum and Dad. Perfect time to pick up my crochet hook & this little cushion, and finally finish it.
It's a bit rough around the edges (using different types of yarn probably didn't help), but I was pretty pleased with my first effort. Epic!
Although I find the colours a little bright now (see, I left it too long to finish :), it goes well with this little pillow case I found thrifting whilst I was over there.
On the same day, we went for a little walk and came across this beauty!
Glorious, isn't she? How I remember bouncing on the hard and squeaky back seat of my grandparent's, whizzing around the country lanes. I got chatting with the owner who, to my delight, was more than happy to tell me all about it :)
So... It was only a matter of time before I made a Renault 4 Quatrelle version of my 2CV hoop :)
(Now on my little shop's shelves)
Thank you so much for all you lovely comments about my glossy features (I missed one too in CrossStitcher magazine. How lucky was I? Three in a month!), I am really touched...
Mwaaah to you all!
