Good Monday Morning my fine friends! How are you and how was the weekend? We're still weekending here today, Bret has the day off and we're probably going to be a bit lazy.
I did get around to some sewing this weekend, how about you? I have a nice old swing on my patio, it has a fabric canopy that was a little worse for wear. The California sun can be pretty hard on fabric, and it was disintegrating so I finally had to do something. I'd been thinking about it for ages, and had even picked up the canvas I planned on using, but never wanted to get started on it. I just find tasks like that to be a pain. But in a matter of a couple of hours I had made the canopy, washed and shrunk it to the perfect size (which was a lucky break). Pretty it's not, canvas gets awfully wrinkly when wet and since I put it on the swing wet to dry and shrink up around the frame it's s little funky. But I consider it all done and somewhat a miracle.
Unspoken here is.. if it was so easy why did it take me months to actually do it? Well that's my brand of insanity right there people. Saturday was a scorcher but Sunday was positively blissful and I plunked myself out there with a coffee and a magazine and enjoyed the cool morning. Looks like we have some nice weather coming up, so I will put that canopy to good use!
Have a good day out there people!!! xo
