This is the sofa at Cornerstones. It is ancient [no, honestly, it is - it was purchased by Bob’s parents about 40 years ago] We got it in 1986. The original upholstery is a cream, loose weave, slubby sort of fabric. Totally inappropriate for a family with small children, so we bought the green fitted covers from Plumbs in 1989.
Bob is not keen on scatter cushions – but occasionally I like to curl up with one under my head. At other times I enjoy snuggling under a blanket whilst watching TV [as do Liz and Steph – is it genetic?]
So I went through my wool stash and found all the balls of DK which were used in the floral print. It has taken a couple of weeks to crochet this massive Granny Square. Folded it can be a cushion – unwrapped it is a warm blanket.
Yes this has been photographed on the plain blue sofa in Kirby – but it is back at Cornerstones now, thanks to the kindness of Chris, who has taken a carrier bag of bits and pieces back to Norfolk with her.
When I was working on it last week in London, Jon said he thought that it was a wonderfully retro project. I am inclined to agree – and very pleased that it was made with Stash Stuff and therefore cost me nothing!
