This simple to make cushion was inspired by one that i saw in a Pottery Barn catalog. The fabric is 'Cashmere' by Waverly.
To make one 13'' cushion:
Cut one 14inch square and two rectangles measuring 14x10. All seams are included. Turn under one long side of each rectangle twice and stitch to create hem. Over lap hemmed rectangles to create a 14 inch square and pin or stitch to hold together. The hemmed sides need to be in the centre of the square as this is the opening to insert pillow form. Layer the two square right sides together and stitch around all four sides. Trim corners, turn out to right side and stitch again around all four sides to create the border. insert pillow form. That's it, i told you it was simple.

The Trains at Longwood

This is the last weekend to see the G-scale trains at Longwood Gardens . This years display featured model buildings of local landmarks made from natural materials.
We saw the display twice this year, on our second visit the ground was covered in snow.
