finished knitted and embroidered cushion and some more cards

Hello everyone,
This week I have been busy finishing my cushion and card making again. I have also joined a local knitting, crochet and sewing group, it is a newly formed group and at the first meeting only four of us turned up but now it has grown to ten. All the members are very friendly and quite a few of them have a good knowledge of knitting. We all share our knowledge and projects as well as having a cup of tea and some cake!
Now back to my cushion, it was made from the left over wool from my cardigan
The cushion is made by knitting four blocks, each made in stocking stitch with a moss stitch border. The back is done in all moss stitch. The flowers are embroidered with tapestry wool and if you look closely the surface is covered in small pearl beads.
Everyone loved the cushion at the knitting group and I now have two orders for them, one wants the flowers of the four seasons and the other in more Burgundy colours.

These are the cards I have made so far this week


 
I have made this one for an order and it has now gone to a good home!


I thought that I would get in early with this one!
 
Bye for now, susan x
