It's the little things that make a big difference sometimes.
Those are really nice and I like the snap idea. We might think about that with the new ones. We also spit our bottom cushions and back cushions into 2. The use of them is more versatile for us. Ruth and I will at times be sitting on the same side and I like the back cushion and she doesn't.

Thanks for showing that,
