Cushion Me

Hurrah!  A cushion for the arctic entry.  In Alaska, an arctic entry is a room between the house and the garage in which one takes off shoes, coats, and such.  Lately, when going outside here, in temps at 7 degrees above zero (fahrenheit), and headed for mountain tops 15 minutes from the house which clock winds at 50 MPH, I channel Neil Armstrong on a moon trip.  Clothing wise, that is.  I don't go for the 'depends' diaper or urine channeling rigamarole, of course. 

The cushion is, of course, a place to sit while taking off the shoes.  I made piping for the edges.  The fabric came from my friend Julie, who has a business serving clients in NYC and on Long Island in home decoration.  I brought some of it up with me  to 'elegant-up' the last frontier, so to speak.
