Ta-da! I finished my cushion (pattern here)! I did end up using 5 of Chris’ T-shirts to stuff it — I was too antsy to wait for an actual pillow form in the mail. It turned out great — it’s nice and firm and only a little lumpy, but you can kinda just mush it into shape and it’s lovely and supportive! Here’s the back:
I used the same color sequence as the front because it would have bothered me if it was different. I used all 17 colors from the Deramores Lucy Pack leftovers (from this blanket), and I still have enough yarn to probably make another cushion! Next time I get this pack I will not skimp on blanket size — one pack is probably enough to cover a double bed!
About dem feelins. I’m definitely down today. I’m consoling myself with the fact that I’ve made a couple of new friends lately and of course I’ve got my best friend and boyfriend, Chris. He always makes me feel better when I’m down, and I’m very thankful for him. I also made a list of 10 things that make me happy:
- Dr. Pepper
- my boyfriend
- my dog
- my family/my boyfriend’s family
- the friends that I do have
- comfy pajamas
- good music/TV shows
- pretty things in nature, i.e. flowers, ocean, fields
I can keep going, but 10 is enough to make me smile.
Thanks for stopping by, I’ll be more positive next time! 🙂
