I finished the cushion. Still not perfectly happy with it, but I managed to break every needle I have trying to get through it. Ohhh well. It will do for now! Now I just need to get the sides, back and bottom stapled on. Almost there!!
To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.
William Henry Channing
