Crochet stool cover

I made this last weekend, only took me a few hours and I really like the result. Simple as hell, it is just a huge granny square in several colors that is fitted around a stool. What make it even cooler is that is covering a stool my great grandfather (who died way before I was born) made!

Here are some photos:

Ok, I am working on this one now. Spent about two hours outlining the whole thing. By the end of the night my wrist was calling me names! It looks nice as it is, even without coloring in, but I’ll fill it in anyways. I kept the design on paper and can do it again.

Can’t wait to get my hands busy painting it, but saddly, work comes first ;). This is the first design I have made using inspiration from works I saw on the net. A few changes here and there, but I really love it. Hope it looks nice in the end.

Here’s how it looks after the outlining:

Addicted to pots

Here’s my most recent pot. I used a really old ball of yarn I found in the basement and some glue. Simple, easy and looks pretty fun 🙂
I’ve been a bit addicted to making new pots, I hope the addiction doesn’t end, because it is a healthy addiction and it is doing me a world of good. It is keeping me fulfilled, happy, entertained and inventive!

To think the addiction came back after I went to my mom’s and saw an old one I had made for her 🙂 . So glad the “crafter’s block” hasn’t hit me yet lol. Last time I had a ‘block’ it lasted me for years!
