First of the chair covers started....

Started the first of the chair covers yesterday...an abandoned piece I had started but didn't like the white I had used as the joining background, yarn and colour were wrong.
 
Quick trip to the wholesaler for  a pack of PATONS FAIRYTALE 100% PURE WOOL...
a perfect colour although the photograph doesn't show the difference at all there is a huge change
 
 
Can't make up my mind...all the same or all different?
Probably all different with a colour link...I think i would get bored doing four the same, like making a king size bed throw!
 
By bedtime last night I had them all back together and had added 5 more. to make the start of the chair back bag.
Lets see it I can double the number today.....?
 
Happy Hooking x

  6. I'm loving the chair backs.. I like the ones with 9 on them. I adored the two kitties curled up in their crocheted bowls. :-) ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  7. Hi Teresa...the 9 patch ones are my garden cushions I just tried them on to see.
    Might make one of the covers similarly though.
