On the Sixth Day of Christmas

My true love, (or in this case, my sister) gave to me....

A fabulously crocheted granny sqaure cushion!

Heaven knows that when I retire and have the time to finish assembling all those granny square littering my house that I'll have a blanket large enough to cover all of York Region... but a cushion!?!?!? Who thinks of that!!!

My dear wee sister- THAT'S WHO!

Not only did she crochet a cushion for me, but she also incorporated another fun-filled-fiber thing that I just looooooove.

POM POMS.

AT EACH CORNER.

Man. I have cool siblings.



The scoop?

She started it on a plane ride over to Scotland last summer using up bits and pieces of hand-dyed sock yarn and VOILA! This was the result.

How kind of her to gift it to me.

Although... let's be real here. I might be one of the few that actually has decor that will jive with this palatte.

And I'm totally ok with that.

I LOVE the pom poms! I'm thinking of making a big granny square blanket. I've seen quite lovely ones lately.

The pompoms rock. As does the cushion - fabulous colours! I expect to see you in a totally neon pompom scarf one day soon.....
