Cushions and a Curtain

Hello there! I am sewing a lot and posting very little. Here are some cushions to bolster Elf son and visiting children at our dining table. Elf Son is quite tall, but lacks just a few centimetres to be really comfortable at the table. I thought that it would be nice to have some in happy colours to sit on.

I had a sit on the red/pink one today myself and am pondering whether I want one for myself (I am not tall at all. I almost asked for a cushion at a restaurant, when we got one for Elf son today ; ).

The little room has got a "curtain" now. I don't like curtains and either have blinds or black out blinds combined with a little "pelmet" like this.

I sew it from grey linen bought in IKEA and some cottons from my stash.

Despite lining it, the back light does show the two seams I had to make for my coloured stripes to be long enough. I cheated by leaving the black out curtain hanging behind the pelmet to stop the light shining through.
 I used a crocheted sofa arm protector/table cloth/something, which I found in the charity shop to make the cute snow flakes with buttons in the centre.
