Cosy Cushion

We already  had a covering  of snow when it began to fall quite heavily last night, for about 3 hours big fluffy flakes of now and then that fine heavy stuff that covers everywhere in a white blanket fell from the sky.

This morning all the dads were out with the kids on sledges seeing who could make the biggest  snowman, and the dogs couldn't wait to go out.

 I decided to have a lovely cosy day by the fire, finishing off  a cardigan that I started for Alexa last year, eating crumpets and drinking tea. I was just thinking how warm and cosy it was inside,  while big flakes of snow were falling outside, when I glanced across at the chair and I thought "that doesn't look like a cosy chair, it needs new cushions"!!

So I left the knitting (will I ever finish it?) and rummaged through my fabrics for something suitable to make a "cosy cushion" I found a  lovely piece  woolly blanket,  a small amount of pink velvet and I cut a small piece off an old cream blanket for the back.

Half an hour later I'd stitched the cushion together and I was pleased with it but still the chair wasn't cosy enough, I already had this little cushion

  so I just turned it over and wrapped it up, parcel fashion, with some butchers twine,

then I placed them on the chair with Mrs Bunny and a big warm blanket for throwing over chilly knees,

result...I now have a very cosy chair

and footstool to match.

What did you do on this snowy day, play snowballs or keep warm in a cosy chair???

Thank you to everyone who left me birthday wishes in the last post I do appreciate all your lovely comments.

(Back of the cushion looks nice too!)

We haven't had much snow, just enough to make it look pretty, but its cold. I don't blame you for staying in either. The cushions look absolutely lovely.
