I think this will be my final cushion, but never say never ;)
I have some beautiful Sheepfold North ronaldsay and the new exmoor bought at Fibre East for my final cushion as an extra special treat to me.
This has been an amazing journey. I was wondering today how and when I got involved with the Woolsack project. I honestly can not recall..I think I found one of Jane’s original cushions in a Rav search and then found the call for 40 Winter Cushions for the Youth Winter Olympics. Fairisle has been a bit of a thing for me so it was natural to offer to make a couple of cushions and it just lead on from there :)

I have added Sheepfold Zwartables which is brown and a blue from The Natural Dye Studio GBWC( doubled )

having made 2 hats from Kimberley’s London Skyline pattern when testing it for her earlier this year. I knew I would have to make a cushion or two using some of the elements from the pattern. I am happy with the result and have another already on the needles with a different sky colour.
This is going to a New Zealand Paralympic cyclist guide and I am making another similar one for the cyclist and will raise the skyline clouds and numbers along with Braille for the 2012
