My Granny Rose Pillow Cover


I single crocheted the two sides together and added the picot edging last night...

Both sides are granny roses - same colors - just different color placement...



Looked through my vintage button pail...


Narrowed down my vintage button selection...


Sewed on my three buttons...


Inserted my travel pillow form...


And viola...my Granny Rose pillow is finished. 

 It's the cutest.pillow.cover.EVER! 

 I'm so pleased with it. 

 This has been a joy to crochet and that's not always true for some projects.


B.U.T.
I couldn't wait...

You know I love RED and Christmas...


I had to make some samples for my Christmas Granny Rose throw.


I may alternate the red roses with light celery colored roses...in the same shade as the joining yarn in my pillow cover. 

Lap size would be nice...

Maybe 36 rose squares with edging?  

 So now you know what I'm working on as my next project.

Red, green and white yarn will be packed with us on our travel van road trip next week.  

By the time I come back I will be able to crochet these roses in my sleep I bet!!!

Have a most wonderful weekend!
