In bloom

This pillow almost never got made. I started it in a heady enthusiastic rush about six months ago but ran out of puff a few weeks later. So it sat in my wool basket looking sad and floppy and for whatever reason, I almost decided to abaondon it compeletly. Then I didn't. I found more bright coloured wool, picked it up and kind of fell in love the project all over again.
So here she be. A little wonky (that's standard) but done. It's one of Attic24's fantastic patterns: Blooming Flower Cushion and she did an amazing job on the tutorial - loads of photos and step by step instructions. Such an inspiration.
