Well day 6 of back pain and I'm bored of it now. The only time I get relief is when I'm sat still, this however lends itself to copious quantities of movies and hand crafts.
I made a start on my cushion tapestry just after Christmas and in these last few days I've completed it!
I must have spent about 50 hours on it so far but it's done! I have not been able to use my new sewing machine as it requires lots of moving about and leg movements (which hurt) so it's not yet a cushion, but I will be sure to show it when it is.
Once I completed that I scoured the room for other things I could do from my sofa and my crochet jumped up and waved at me. I really feel I should keep pecking away at this.
I love this tin!
These are little squares to make up the Springtime Throw from the Cute & Easy Crochet book.

Poor thing; I've neglected these little squares for a while. I dedicated today to it and got a few more made up.
I'm now in a bit of a dilemma.
I'm so impatient, I started these last Summer whilst on holiday and to date I have 96 little squares. As you can see from my photo 96 squares do not add up to much size wise, I've shown them against an average sized cushion.
The instructions call for 432 squares in total, so I'm not even a quarter of the way there!
I've kept all the ends too!
So what do I do? Do I plod on for another two years or do I give up and make a cushion? I'm thinking if I make some larger squares I can mix them up and get there a bit quicker. I would love to see this at the bottom of my bed.
What do you think should I plod on and make the throw, or cave in and make a cushion?
I'd be interested in your opinions?
