I started, on another background colour for the next flower cushion (yes I'm well aware I've not completed the last one :-/ ) This is a multi-toned yarn by King Cole, and has some berry tones about it with hints of purple, blue and red.
I came across a lovely flower pattern on once upon a pink moon blog, and it's not taken me long to make a couple of these.
They work up nice and big, which is what I wanted, to be nice and bold in contrast to the smaller summery ones.
I made the flowers in stylecraft dk yarn, which although is acrylic is lovely and squishy! I did add a couple of extra layers to the flowers to add some more depth and colour highlights.
Although I do have to admit I think the only reason that I'm considering some smaller flowers, is because of this image that I've seen on Facebook, and I really want to have a go, and trying to find somewhere I can incorporate these as an excuse to make some!!

I did have a long train journey during the week, for work,
which enabled me to make some more of my portable squares
Me and hubby celebrated our 4th Wedding anniversary this week, well I say the term 'celebrated' rather loosely, as with his lack of mobility we aren't really venturing out much.
We have started little walks each day, so we ventured to our local village, and stopped for coffee and cake, just to have a rest of course!
It was such a pleasure to be out of the four walls, and sit outside in the fresh air, feeling the warmth of the sun
The following day we treated ourselves to a take-out
This weeks mood square....
Ummm not quite accomplished that this week YET, i'll get right on to it...
Watch this space.........
