It was a hard task but we got there in the end and she absolutely loved them!!! (apparently it's unusual to get past a like with her so to get to love is very rare). And I even had a lovely bunch of flowers from her to say thank you!
The bottom picture is one she sent me of them in their new home in front of the window with the tie backs she wanted them to match.
My friend that I made them for also had cushion covers from me a few months back:
So there we go, a whole family of cushions!
