Between repairing nine window screens, doctor appointments, hospital tests, a visiting grandchild, a flooded basement, work, and life in general, I finished a couple of things. Nothing knitting related but still creative or challenging.
In a previous post I showed you some pictures of our front porch. I don’t know if you noticed the screen on the bay window. Probably not. Well, it was torn at the bottom. An over zealous power washer was, um, over zealous and several screens were damaged. We don’t take the screens out of our windows in the winter so twenty year-old fiberglass mesh screens are fragile.
I learned how to replace window screens. YouTube is wonderful. I could pick all the components locals except for the plunger pins that hold the screen into the window frame. I found a place on-line and ordered enough to replace all of them in our windows should the need arise. Good thing I did as I ended up having to replace some in our other windows before the job was finished.
I also decided early on that ivory cushions on an outside sofa was not a good idea. I purchased some fabric on-line and made new cushions.
I plan on making new pillows as well but thought I’d give you a sneak peek of my progress so far.
I even did the top stitching like the original cushions.
They seem a bit bright and busy but anything would after plain ivory, right?
