Four seasons knitted and embroidered cushion, card and Irish shamrock

Hi everyone,
I have a few things to show you this time, the knitting and crochet club is going well and I am really enjoying going. Maxine who is the club organiser asked me to make her a cushion with flowers from the four seasons, it is for her sisters birthday. She was over the moon with the cushion when I gave it to her.

Spring Daffodil and bluebells
Summer corn flower
Autumn cone flower
Winter Hellebore
The knitting group is held in a centre run by the Irish community, it is only small as the Irish community isn't large. Half of the group is  Irish and with St Patricks Day coming up in March we decided to make some knitted shamrocks to sell for charity and this is what we created.
I have started another knitted cardigan, it is similar to the last one but there is no pattern, I am just doing it in stocking stitch with a straight sleeve instead of a raglan.
I cannot leave you without showing you another card, this time I have only had time to make one.
