Wip Wednesday – Willow Cushion Cover

My love affair with Jan Eaton’s Willow block continues, this time in experimental (for me) colours. I recently bought these neons on impulse in a dollar store, just for fun. So chuffed I did! As I hooked, they became evocative of something I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Eventually I realised that the colours were reminding me of my travels in Southeast Asia – Hindu temples, Buddhist offerings (below, Northern Thailand), Little India in different places…Happy memories of adventures and places I hope to return to one day πŸ™‚

Corner to Corner Crochet has been on my list for some time, and my current plan is to learn it by creating a C2C square for the back of this cushion cover. I will report back!


I’m so glad I opted for something different and grabbed these brights! Perfect for a wet and miserable long weekend!! Do you like hooking with neons? Do you stay in your colour comfort zones, or do you like to experiment?

  1. I’ve seen a lot of neon lately – and it makes me so happy! I usually don’t consider colors like this mostly because I’m not sure what I would use them on but seeing your bright neon makes is making me look at neon in a new way! πŸ˜€

    • Makes me happy too πŸ™‚ As I said in today’s post – will have to redecorate to get it to match anything lol. Atm it’s a nice pop of colour on white bedlinen – makes me smile πŸ™‚ I’m thinking maybe some granny square slippers to match, I keep meaning to try that πŸ™‚
