Notes

I have just ordered some more blue and red to finish this cushion as i have used it all up on others ;)

Oh well when it arrived both were completely different colours ? not even a little bit different - totally different
back to the drawing board. maybe just plain brown ?

I am now making a union flag front using the lovely pattern by Kim Bothy - Drhook
It’s beautiful :)
Blocked and drying in this beautiful sunshine.
I am hoping to add some bunting with crocheted numbers 2012 and some triangles along the middle of the flag, backed with wool felt to help keep them stable *
The TeamGB Cycling Duck is a present from my silly son Alex ;) we all got a different duck. His is a rower wearing cool shades !
* i made the bunting removable with little red heart buttons.
This is my final “Celebration” Woolsack cushion :)
