Work-In-Progress Wednesday 32


My friend Karri made me this gorgeous "love" pillow for my birthday and got me thinking that the pillows in the living room could use a little sprucing up (they've been the same for the past few years & are abused by my family).  So, I decided to mix a little crochet in with the fabrics and got to searching for patterns.  I fell in love with the look of this pillow that The Green Dragonfly made using this square pattern from Millie Makes and decided to make as close to the same pillow as I could manage.  I made a color switch but other than that think I was able to mimic the rest pretty well (the back is all grey dc rows).  I love how it looks with Karri's pillow on our grey couch too.

I thought I'd do one more pillow, but wanted to do something completely different.  So I'm going round and bright green and flowery.  This is the start of the Blooming Flower Cushion from Attic 24, but I'm doing it in a single color.  I thought it would be fun to have a pop of green in amongst the white, grey, blur, and orange.


We are getting some new photo art for the walls soon too, so I'm getting really excited about the new look of our living room.  Now if only I was allowed to paint our old, dingy walls...

It is amazing how something as simple as pillows can brighten up the room. Side by side it makes the old pillows look faded.

Love the blue against the gray! This is a great idea to refresh a room.
