Vintage Cushion Cover

I embroidered this cushion a while ago but I have only just photographed it.
 The cushion cover was part of a set, and the linen fabric was ready traced for embroidery, printed in blue [which can still be seen even though it has been washed]. It was among my grandmother's belongings, and my mother gave it to me after she died. I have a page of the 'Woman' magazine which had the offer of the linens, it looks like it is from the 50's and one cushion cover cost 2s.9d old money. [14p today?] The instructions say follow the pictures for colours [multi-coloured], however I wanted it for my living room so I used shades of red. I may try a different technique on another cover. [one day]
