since my previous post last week i finished one cushion cover. it is for my mother who goes through a very difficult year. in april, my oldest brother deceased, which is her first child and next to health problems she has recently lost her sister.
my youngest brother travels the world for his work and phones her as often as he can, my other brother lives in the same street as my mother and offers her great support. i can not phone my mother because i hear very poorly and we don’t see each other very often because i live at the other end of the country. so we write letters.
because winter starts i have a cushion cover designed for her, both colorful and warm and hopefully matching the covers of her other cushion covers.
the cover is made from three kinds of acrylic yarn, the stitches are all half double crochets alternately in the front and back loops which creates a ‘bumpy’ pattern.
today i send the cushion by mail to my mother and let’s hope she will like it.
