Christmas Cushion

Hello everyone,
I hope your weekend  is going well :)) It is raining here in the North of the state, and the plants are loving it. Although a little wet for the Deloraine Craft Fair.. 
I have finished one of three Christmas cushions. Quite pleased with pattern.. I like to crochet what ever comes into the mind at the time.:)) I dislike having to read patterns .
a close up of the pattern.

Reverse of cushion..

  I can't honestly say I am pleased with this side as it seems lopsided to me.. Have you ever crochet a granny blanket only to find the centre is crooked?? I would love to know why?? Although I did think it is because the centre is of a firmer tension,Or a little loose, which ever the case maybe.. 
When I have completed the next cushion I will upload a pic..
What ever you may be doing this weekend, enjoy :))

Exciting week :))

What an exciting week it has been. My fifth grandchild was born on Monday to my eldest son and his lovely wife.  Last night they came for a visit, of course you can imagine how loved this little one is.. His name is Elijah....
What a joy he is going to be.. :))

At last it is nearly complete, just 3 more rows and it is finished.. The lacy join is so easy to crochet and doesn't take long.. Now that has to be a bonus :))

3 UFOs..
With only a couple of UFOs to finish before Christmas,I am starting to feel a little more relaxed. 
The sun is shining outside , but the wind is cold, and I don't like the cold.. Bring on Summer.!!!!!!!
Beaches, BBQs, Picnics Cool long drinks..
Will I have time to crochet I hear you ask.. To right I will, I'll bring out the #20 cotton and finish a table runner and 
a doily that has been waiting for ... years... Dream on :))
Back to the here and now, the hexagons I am making into a rug, and joining them with flat braid join.. I found the info here .
The crochet group I belong to here in Aus, exchange 7"squares, which I forgot to mention I have a pile, waiting to be joined.So that makes another UFO to be added to the list.. The exchanges are a lot of fun, and I do love receiving mail in the post.
Received from a member in NSW.

What do you
have in the way of UFOs ??? its confession time ..:))
Now for the other rug I am pleased to report LOL the baby shawl is finished yippee.
 The reversible Hungarian rug, is almost complete ,
