Needlepoint progress

Okay, I first posted about my needlepoint project about 5 months ago and I'm not finished yet. Yikes. Time flies and I clearly do not work on my little needlepoint hobby every day. Anyways, it is getting there so I thought I'd share an update. Take a look:
What do you think? (By the way, ignore the fact that the line on the bottom looks a bit wonky...that's just how it's sitting on the scroll frame.) As you can see, I don't have much further to go really. I need to work on it every time I watch t.v. so I can move to the sewing it into a pillow part. Ack, that part scares me a bit. I have the grey velvet for the back and the inner cushion. What I need is more practice sewing so I don't mess it up! I want to use a zipper to make the cover removable from the inner cushion but zippers are not easy to sew...for me anyways. We'll see when I get there...which is hopefully in less than another 5 months! The white chair in the living room eagerly awaits its lumbar support companion!
