Love your crocheted cushions. So pretty. Jacob did a wonderful job on his collage. What's so great about it is he did about something he is very passionate about. Nice to see young people passionate about something and moving forward with it to make a difference. Please let him know I am proud of him and to keep it up.

I love vintage aprons. I wear an apron when I'm in the kitchen and cleaning house. It saves my clothes from getting all stained up.

Hi friend!
What a great post - you've been busy this week! LOVE the aprons and I too am a fan (although I never actually wear them - just collect them - as if I need another obsession . . .) and your crocheted cushion are so fabulous! I love all the bold color and circular patterns. AND HOW COOL is your little "greenie" in the making - you are an inspiration to more than just us . . .
Oh! And thank you for your kind comment about Somerset - it is a first for me and I am beside myself with excitement, Kristin xo

THanks so much for stopping by recently and commenting on my silly plastic fork post. They are now officially gone and people are having to wash real ones. lol

I'm in love with your crocheted round cushion! I took up crocheting again this year. DO you have a pattern for that? I've love to try it.
