Latest FOs: Cushion Cover and Kindle Cosy

This cushion cover is one of the first crochet projects I started, but it languished unfinished for months after my local yarn shop stopped carrying the yarn I was using. (Note to self: don't start projects that you don't have enough yarn to finish! *wristslap*) Fortunately I managed to find the yarn elsewhere, and get this thing off my conscience. It still doesn't have any fastenings though, because really, who has the patience to fully finish things, when there is a new knitting or crochet project calling?

Not photographed in context, because my living room furniture is far too ugly.

I also made a protective cosy for my favourite toy - my Kindle. The outside is flat cotton, and the inside is polyester microfleece. In hindsight I wish I'd used batting sandwiched between two layers of flat cotton, because the microfleece produces fairly bulky seams. However, it looks nice and it does the job, so I'm not feeling very nitpicky about it. The button is covered with one of my quilter's cotton prints. I made it ages ago, and it was just sitting in a draw waiting for the right project to come along.

I love this fabric!

My well protected Kindle

I have a huge list of things I want to make, but it's all being pushed aside to make way for Christmas knitting. All these gorgeous socks coming off my needles, and I don't get to keep a single pair!
