I can’t believe it’s already September! Each season has it’s own special smells and I could smell Fall in the air yesterday. The days are definitely getting shorter. Are you ready for the change in seasons?
Last week was eventful in so far as we received some outdoor items we ordered way back in June. Our new patio table finally came in and we have been eating out on the deck the past couple of days – breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This past weekend was Labor Day in the US. Mr. Aitch and I hung out at home and enjoyed the beautiful weather. The sunny skies were welcome as it rained every day last week and finally cleared up on Friday. We really missed our evenings eating al fresco and though summer is winding down, we can still enjoy another couple of weeks on the deck. You can read about the old table.
The fabric I ordered to recover the old cushions at the beginning of June was canceled by the manufacturer in mid-August. Or that’s when I found out about it. Back to square one with that. I finally decided on a solid red for the front porch cushions, ordered it, and received the bolt of fabric last week.
One thing I didn’t like about the original cushions is that they are 3-4 inches narrower than the seat cushions. That was something I didn’t realize before I made those covers. I have to get new inserts anyway so I will make them the same width as the seat cushions. I can take my time over the winter months to make the new cushion covers for next spring/summer.
The Rainy Window socks are coming along nicely. Sock number 1 is finished (except for weaving in the ends) and sock number 2 is more than halfway done. The heel is turned and I have about one-third of the foot knitted.
You can find me out on the deck knitting.
