New Cushion

Yesterday I had a visit from a dear friend who has been living in Auckland, doing grandmotherly things up there. It was so nice to catch up again and once we had chatted about our children and their offspring, of course our conversation ran on to knitting .
I showed her what I had on the needles and what had been discarded and left behind,
and her suggestion was...that zigzag blanket would make a perfect cushion !

So today I sewed two sides, slipped an inner into the opening and crocheted it together.

and now I am having fun placing it in different places to see how it looks and feels.

I can't imagine it being anything else now I've seen it as this - and all those little upsy downsy bits look like smiles!

Your cushion is really beautiful. I love the blend of colors and the pattern your knitting made. Your friend certainly had a great idea!
