Crochet Stool Cover...

I bought last year a battered old stool with a view to tidy up, paint and sell.  Then I found a blog where the very talented blogger crochets covers for old stools and thought that a very cool idea...so I popped the stool back in the shed, awaiting its very own little crochet cover.

Jump ahead a year and the latest edition of Mollie Makes landed on my mat this Saturday...I settled down in the comfy chair, turned on selective hearing (tuned the kiddos out) and began to flick through.  And what do you think I spotted in there?  Yep you got it a beautiful little crochet cover for a lovely old stool!

It was the kick up the butt I needed...so I fished out the stool from the shed, sat in the sun on Sunday and began to twiddle...

Obviously I had to have a cuppa...and entertain the kiddos and ensuing cooking, washing, tidying etc


I finished it last night once the kiddos went to bed,
finished photos of the stool with it's lovely cover to follow later
