New WIP - Granny Spike Cushion

Hello Lovelies,

Many of you are finishing up the work week today, I hope you are relaxing with some good food and wine by now. We do not have tomorrow as a vacation day, but we do have our end of the semester celebration lunch. So I am not enjoying food and wine yet.

I am hoping to finish the month of April with one more project, a granny spike cushion. I am using Jacquie's pattern from Bunny Mummy. I loved this pillow since the first time I saw the photo, so now I will have one to look at each and every day.

I am going to do four squares on one side and one large square on the other. Right now I just have two of the four squares complete. The colors are not exactly what I had in mind, but we will see how the final product turns out.

Earlier today I stopped by a Jo Ann Fabric store and they were having a 50% pre-Easter sale today until Saturday on all of their buttons. I plan to use Bunny Mummy's tutorial for a button closure on this cushion, so I picked some up on different colors.
Each day and evening I usually spend a good amount of time doing work. All of the courses I am teaching this semester are online, so this stretching my schedule to pretty much mean "all days, all the time" which I do not mind too much BUT I need to take this evening off and I plan to spend it hooking away.
xoxo Susan


  1. Hi Susan,

    Those are pretty grannies and I love the colors on the first photo. Looking forward to your finished piece :-)


  2. I think the colours look lovely. I'm always nervous of using more than 3 or 4 colours together, but I always like it when I see things other people have made using more! I should be braver. Looking forward to seeing the finished cushion.
