My 1st Crocheted Cushion Cover

I've been trying to make crocheted granny squares since about 2 weeks ago for the purpose of making a cushion cover out of them, i'm glad it's finished though it's not perfect as i still need to learn on my tension so the square is tight and not loose, but i'm happy with the result :P

I made about 50 little granny squares and it turned out not enough and so I improvised by doing treble crochet at the back to join the piece and added buttons, I use envelope style cushion coz it's easier to put the cushion inside the cover :)

I always have problem joining the squares and need to learn more on how to do it correctly but i still love the result :)

I must say I deserve a cup of tea :P

Afternoon Tea Swap

I joined the Afternoon Tea Swap over at Pretty Little Jewel and i'm so lucky to be partnered with her, I'm so sorry that I sent my parcel very late as I was sick and couldn't post the parcel on time.

I was so excited despite my high temperature with a fever and was lying on the bed helplessly when hubby told me that He found a parcel on the door for me, I had to wait till the fever's gone then i opened the beautifully wrapped gifts she sent me, Thank you Julie! so here are what she sent to me;

She sent me; A lovely teacup but sadly the saucer was already broken when i opened it but i love it nonetheless, a beautiful victoria sponge cake recipe handmade by her, a delicious smell of Danish tea called Kaerlighedste Love Tea, can't wait to try it! she also sent me a chinese tea in a cute tin, a yummylicious homemade strawberry jam made by her which i've tasted it and love it! she also gave me a handmade necklace with a cute teapot pendant and a cute tea house stickers. Thank you so much and I do love the cute card too!

...and here are the gifts I sent to her, I wanted to apologize first as I didn't have time to make a craft item :)

I sent her; a set of English Breakfast Tea in mini tins, a Cath Kidston's Tea Mug, Tea Party Fridge Magnets, Handmade crocheted Cupcake and handmade Teapot cushion hanger and Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Lemon Shortbreads to accompany drinking tea. I do hope you'll like them :)

Thank you again for organizing the swap, I've had so much fun and Thanks for the swap gifts you sent, love them! x
