Last night, at approximately 1.30am, I finally finished my latest magnum opus to date: a crochet cushion that took me 9 whole months to complete. Never thought it would take so long when I first bought the yarn in January from Romni Wools. And here I am, all these months later, and so many changes have occurred in that short period of time: new friends, new house, new creativity so-big-it’s-about-to-explode, new horizons conquered and new pets.

The R stands for my surname – Robledo – and I got the idea of cross-stitching over crochet from this fantastic book.

I used all my leftover yarn to make the backing. There’s a little history to it too as I taught a few people how to crochet by helping me finish it. Some crochet pros also contributed as it’s a highly addictive craft. All in all I’d say about 5 lovely ladies helped šŸ™‚
