Pastel pretties: cushions!

I'm happy to be able to share one of my completed pastel projects! Do you remember I posted about these projects a couple of weeks ago?

Well here's the first one!

Originally I only planned to make one of these cushion covers, but I loved the first one so much I just knew I needed a matching pair in my life!

The yarns are a mix of pastel colours with 6 different shades:

pale pink
slightly paler pink
pale blue
duck egg blue

I just love these colours together. I think I said before that I find this mix to be a kind of 'pastels with an edge'. Well, I can see this becoming a major colour palette for me in future. It reminds of breaking dawn or sunset skies, and I find it really calming!

Calming is something I am in need of at the moment. As a rule I don't talk about personal things on this blog and I'm not about to start tonight. But, this has been a stressful week and I have had anxiety over a few things.

Crochet has always been something that has stood me in good stead in anxious times, and it has not deserted me this week.

Hope you all have a happy evening and weekend!
