Tray cloth cushions

A year or so ago, I went through a phase of buying inexpensive batches of old linen from an auction house. They always contained lots of fairly unpleasant crochet mats and a great deal of very pretty tray cloths. The crochet went straight to the charity shop, but I couldn't bear to part with the tray cloths, as many of them are absolutely beautiful. I didn't want to cut them up, or hide them away, so I have just started making them into little cushions. Here is my first attempt.
It fits prettily on to a chair that I bought for £6 a few years ago from an antiques fair. My dad fixed the wobbly leg, and I painted it and recovered the seat with a scrap of Cabbages and Roses fabric and an old linen cloth for the back.
