Cushion love......a monthly make for March

I love cushions.......I love them on sofas,armchairs and beds......I love the look of them.......the variety of them.......the way they can change the look of a room........the softness of them.......and because I am......ahem......slightly vertically challenged.....I find the sofa much more comfy with cushions behind me.
But OH does not love cushions......not at all.....he tends to throw them over the back of the sofa......which is why we always sit on our own sides of the sofa.......me with my cushions.....and him without them.
So I've decided to focus my cushion love on the conservatory. OH rarely sits out there.....but during the Spring and Summer I love it there......I often eat my breakfast and lunch there.....I sometimes sit and read......I sometimes sit and sew or knit......I sometimes just sit and enjoy the garden.
So my monthly make for March is a knitted cushion......with a little bit of applique and chain stitch.......for the conservatory.     
And all buttoned up on the back.......just scraping in for the 'Monthly Make' March deadline!!!!

It's absolutely adorable Jacky! A couple of these would go perfectly on the love seat in my sun room!

I love this, Jacky, I love the color, I love the daisies, the button back and that it is knitted. I bet it's going to bring a smile to your face every time you walk into the conservatory :)
