this is not a re-post

I made a second blooming flower cushion (pattern here):

And I did a better job on the zipper this time — it’s neater:

And I’ve been feeling much better, thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement, it really made me feel happier!  I’m totally over it.

My exit exam was today, so that was intense.  I felt better learning that you can make under 70% and still pass, and if you just fail one or two sections on the exam you can re-take them.  All is not lost.  It was a really sucky test though — lots of stuff on there that our teachers never covered and I never read in any of our books.  Pretty rough.  I don’t even know when the results will be available, so it’ll be an anxious time for my classmates and me until we learn if we pass or not.

I’m just unwinding at home now, staring at my lovely cushions side by side:

Yay!  And I’ve STILL got yarn left!  I’ve only run out of 2 colors, so I can make a few more little things.  I AM running out of Chris’ T-shirts…

Well, thanks for stopping by, and thanks again for your support and thoughtfulness!  You guys are the best!

    Or more likely, Chris is running out of t-shirts. That bag of yarn was a good investment, you’re getting a lot of mileage out of it.


  2. Nice cushions! I’ve been thinking about making one but I think it might get shredded by my cat 🙂 Good luck on your exam results!


  3. Very pretty! I love the bright colors.
    Isn’t that always the way with tests? I know you’ll do fine 🙂


  4. Wow, you sure whipped that out fast. They both look gorgeous.


  5. I love the burst of color and the shape is absolutely chic, Hannah I have nominated you for a fun award plz see congrats!!!


  6. Beautiful cushions. I am so impressed that you made the backs so lovely too! I would have been very tempter to do the backs plain after all that hard work on the front! Love them x
