decorating with yarn
I’ll be honest; it took a bit longer than I expected. But as I kept at it, row after row, I felt this sense of achievement. Feeling the soft yarn and watching the pouf grow, it was almost like giving our living room a personal touch.

I recently donated my sewing machine to a charity shop since I rarely used it. Now, I miss it because I had to hand-sew the inner cushion for stuffing, which is not my strongest skill. As long as the stitches can hold the stuffing inside I am satisfied.
When I inserted the inner pillow into the pouf, which was just eight rows away from completion, I found myself in an unusual position. I sat with the pouf on my lap, arms extended high to reach the slowly increasing hole. It felt like a workout. Who needs a gym membership when you can pick up a large crochet hook and start crafting?
Now I will sit comfortable in my chair with my feet on my pouf and crochet something with a slightly smaller hook…
