Another one!!!!

Well, well, well....
I've used, finally, all my big granny squares (see here), I've just added 3 to have the right number for two more cushions!!!! One, with the water melons colors, is already on the sofa (nearby this one), while the last one is just waiting for the final row of blanket stitches!!!!

You can have a look to the completed one....please, you are more than welcome!!! ;oD

....and this, instead, is the last one (at least, for a while!!!), on my desk waiting for some sewing...

As I wrote (here) yesterday, I intended to crochet another stool cover (a greenish one) for the remanent stool in the kitchen....and I did it!!! I started yesterday afternoon and it was completed just before lunch today!!!
So, I'm ready to show you this little chunky beauty (I really love it!)....

...and now some little details....

The pattern used is the same that I've followed for the previous stool cover, the hook used is the same (5,50mm), only the colours (except for the pinks!) and the gingham ribbon's thickness are different!!!
What do you think about my "twins"??? ;oD
