  1. Hi Jo - what a great idea. I'm sure there are hundreds of people out there, who are cushion addicts and would love to have a go. I'll mention it on my blog. Not sure I'm in the running sadly, as all our lovely cushions are still in storage and those I have out are covered in kids' detritus. If we move in time and I have the chance to unpack, I'll certainly try to throw something together. Terrific concept. Good luck. Mel @Georgica Pond
