Squares and Other Shapes

Remember these crocheted squares? Well I've been gradually adding to them and now I've got a basketful! I only need a few more to have enough for a throw.
The yellow is what I was thinking of using to join them together and for making a wide edging.
I wasn't going to bother blocking these squares, but looking at the photos, maybe I should.

There are actually about three different dyelots of the off-white here, so I think I'll have to be careful to mix them up evenly before joining them. It will be 14 squares by 12. Don't know what that comes to, but I know it's a lot, LOL.
I've been playing with wool fabric and cutting out shapes.
This photo reminds me of those packets of gummed paper pre-cut shapes you use to be able to buy. I remember buying those regularly with my pocket money as a child.

A pincushion perhaps?
