FO Bloom Cushion

First off, an apology for the photos. My camera is getting old, has been dropped a few too many times and had a low battery. Mr SoaringSheep has offered to get me a fancier one for my birthday in April but I still haven't decided which model I'd like!

Anyways... here is my fantabulous cushion :-D

Subtle huh? Wait 'til you see what it looks like when I use flash!

Gargh my eyes!

Oh and here's the back:

Hehe, I'm finding myself looking at my old beige cushions and planning ways to re-cover and jazz them up a little :-p


I meant to post some photos of my MKAL BooKnits shawl yesterday but let's just say there was an incident with a missing yarn over that resulted in a bit of a paddy and some frogging! Caught up again now although got a few more rounds to go until I'll be ready for the next section. Clue 2 is due out next week though so got a bit of time to work on it.

The yarn is mulbery silk so has a gorgeous sheen to it. Impossible to photograph though! It's somewhere between the two pictures in colour:

I'm using some purple beads with a rainbow sheen to them. Again, impossible to photograph! For what it's worth the yarn is this one and the beads are these. *swoon*

Hope you guys have a good weekend. I'm hoping for a bit of sunshine so we can go out for a walk or two and blow away some winter cobwebs :-)

Linking up with Tami's Amis, thanks for dropping by :-)

    1. The yarn is lovely but rather splitty. Took me a little while to get used to it but think I'm ok now. I specifically made the cushion because of the rubbish weather we've been having, it makes me smile every time I see it :-)

    1. Thank you :-) I found crochet made my hands ache initially but as my muscles got used to it it wasn't so bad. The main problem I have is hurting the nerve in my elbow which I seem to be vulnerable too if I crochet too long :-(

  7. The cushion cover is spectacular! I have been considering trying similar re-fashioning of cushions for my house, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. It's high on my list. I'll keep an eye out for more inspiration. :-D

  8. Homemade/handmade cushion covers are the best :-) My problem is finding just the right pattern and yarn, I'm too indecisive!

  10. These cushions I love too. I planned to do (sometimes ...) but at the moment there isn't enough time. Your cushion is funny, so full of spring or summer - great. Makes me smile too. My last cushion cover is fair to winter ... Happy sunday! Greetings from Germany.
