Bloomin' Flower Cushion Update


Second try coming along...

Blogged about (here)


I found it helps to use my markers to "mark" every five stitches for the flowers.

Front - Two more rounds done correctly

Marking the rounds helped but I also found out why my first one went wrong on the dark burgundy round.  When I printed out the pattern our printer was running very low on color ink.  I didn't realize that some of the text was in red ink rather than black.   The red text didn't come through at all so I missed those stitches completely.   That's I'm cooking with gas. 

Back - with markers

I'm pleased so far.

As this cushion grows I will probably run out of markers but hopefully by then I won't need them as much.

I'm using left over yarn.

Now to choose my next colors!

  4. It is looking great Sandy. Glad you found the problem so you could get it right.

  5. Lookin' good! I loved your "Blooming Bloody Flower Cushion" comment on your first post about it. Hee-hee. I missed that the first time.

  6. It's looking good and I am pleased you have sorted out the problem.

  7. It is looking really nice.
    I bought mine its feather inner today, not sure if it is a bit big (looks rather a fat cushion!) I think it needs a bit of pounding to settle it down.
