Cape Cod Cushions & Granny Squares

Last summer a lovely uncle made me a fab Cape Cod chair.  I managed to get it painted a nice bright blue before winter started and I bought some naked cushions for it. 

The clothing of the cushions meant the sewing machine again... and once again it was trial, error and procrastination over the many winter months.  Today I had an 'ah ha' moment.  "The cushions are going to be used outside so they don't have to be perfect!"

Voila! 2 messy patchwork cushion covers were created!

And in crocheting crafts this week...  behold the granny square made in to a tea pot cosy, the ultimate in kitsch :-)
