Snowflake Cushion

I have always wanted to knit more things for my home besides afghans.  I got this magazine about a month ago.  There are some cool patterns inside.  I find Debbie Bliss patterns easy to knit.  I have used some of her yarns also.  They're nice. 
In this magazine I found this pattern.
It's called Snowflake Cushion. 
I am not crazy about the red and black on cream color scheme.  I want something that will look nice on my sofa which is a light brown.

So I found these colors - country blue and chocolate.  I am using Caron Simply Soft.  I thought that by using an acrylic I could toss it in the washer if it got dirty.  Plus I have yet to find a yarn store here with a good selection of yarns.  At this point  (photo) I am only halfway done.  I wonder what kind of buttons I can find.  I love buttons.
