Crocheted small grany square cushion in all its glory

Yes. I've done it! At last. Here it is - a proper cushion and all:

Here it is again:

And here it is again - just for luck!

Really enjoyed the crocheting experience and loved playing with the squares and deciding which colour should go where! Did not enjoy sewing the squares together. I'm not the world's most patient person and my sewing skills are pretty rubbish. But I managed it in the end (just don't look too carefully). Backed it with a shrunken woollen blankie from the charity shop and Bob's yer uncle.

If you remember, I was inspired to do this by Do you Mind if I Knit's lovely scarf here. Well, recently I noticed that she has a tutorial for her beautiful sisterhood crochet blanket square here. I really like her step by step tutorials. They're perfect for dimwits like myself: excellent photos, easy to follow instructons and lots of encouragement. Well, inspired by this wonderful tutorial, I thought I'd experiment a little and lookee here:

Yes, five granny squares already. How did that happen? Methinks another cushion cover is on its merry way (to go with the other ones I'm planning with some vintage fabric I've got plus I was planning to try my hand at making some patchwork ones). Oh well you can't have enough cushion covers don't you think?
