buttercups and daisies

Do you remember the wool I spun and dyed recently? The "spring green" wool has been transformed into a "Buttercups and Daisies" cushion. 

The Buttercups are crocheted with some 50/50% Silk Merino that I had in my stash, the Daisy petals are 100% silk that I spindle spun! The colours look a little washed out in the photos, the green is darker and more vibrant in real life. I used a thrifted woollen blanket in a soft green for the backing.

I'd love to crochet a big picnic in the same style, it would be like sitting on a summer lawn! I doubt I've got the patience (or the pockets) for such a project, but wouldn't it be fantastically magical? Perfect for a Winter picnic in the lounge.
