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.

weekend coffee
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

I have projects like that too! Some just aren't enjoyable no matter how long it takes to complete them.

Enjoy your beautiful weather.

I do the same thing. I have this liberty knit that was expensive and is so awesome. And a pattern. Why don't I make that shirt for myself I've been wanting to do? Lazy, yes. Good for you getting the canopy done.
