Patchwork Cushion

I've spent the day making this cushion for my sewing class tomorrow. I needed to write out a pattern for a cushion cover with buttons, but then I just got carried away and added a patchwork panel. I thought it would be a great way to introduce patchwork to the course. This was an incredibly cheap project. The fabric is just cheap sheeting and the patchwork is made up from scraps I have laying around.

Looking for a knitter/knitters

I've been commissioned to write a new knitting book. The problem is that I've been knitting up some samples and squares, but am finding that knitting is giving me rsi. I'm having pains up my arms, neck and pins and needles in my fingers. I'm hoping this will be temporary but this is all bad news with so many projects to knit up. So I will be looking for some knitters to help make up some projects and knit up some blocks/squares for me. I will type out the patterns and charts and the blocks are only approx 6in x 6in and also various projects along the way.

I haven't worked out just how much I can pay yet, but if anyone is interested in making anything for me, either squares or projects, I'd be very very grateful.
