Mother's Day cushion

Hello everyone,
My Mother's Day cushion is now finished, I really enjoyed this project the flowers were interesting to make and I learnt a lot of different knitting techniques. All the flowers I made from a book called 100 knitted and crochet flowers.

The roses are made by knitting the petals all in one length and rolling them round into a rose shape. The rose buds are the same principle with the stems and leaves made separate. The bells took me quite a few goes before I got it right, the frilly tops were a bit complicated at first but once I worked it out things seemed a lot easier.
