Grannys Pillow

Although I have not received an official diagnosis, I am fairly certain I suffer from Crafty ADD. I am only hoping someone (anyone) can relate. This project went something like this.
I want to make a granny pillow. I am sure that I can remember the crochet stitches I learned when I was ten-ish. Several hours and You Tube ( great resource for crochet tutorials by the way) later I am going for it. I realize that I do not have anything to keep my unfinished project in. Short break for a quick (?) fabric box to hold the crochet project. The vintage fabric matches the wool I am using. Yes, that's the box in the upper left corner. You might have noticed (although I am sure that you are to kind to mention) the box is unfinished. Oh, did I forget to mention that I am making this pillow to give as a gift? That I have an actual deadline to meet? Snap. Back to the pillow. So her birthday has come and gone. I had to give her an unfinished pillow with the promise that I will get it done soon.
Hey, where did I put that lavender silk yarn I used to have. Didn't it just match that boiled wool jacket that I found at the thrift store that is just begging to be refashioned?
And sew it goes...

a special thank you to my friends Stephanie and Lesli for the crochet help
