Projects these days. It really goes with the time of year, dontcha think?? Summer is done and yard and garden work is slowing. Summer activities are drawing to a close, also. Yesterday was spent making 2 treks to the camper site. The 2nd brought our little cozy RV home for its winter storage. The grounds have to be cleared by Nov. 1st and we have much going on in the next few weeks, so we seized the day to take care of this. The quiet, emptier park always makes me sad but I know that there are many quilting days ahead!!!!! Now to get the unit cleared for those sub-freezing temps that are inevitably coming!
Another task that was completed was mending DS’s cover for his boat. Apparently, interstate speeds didn’t “mix” with a UV weakened cover and the result was this…….Nasty. So I searched in my overcrowded sewing space (anybody out there understandin’ this???) and came up with some super heavy twill…….like outdoor canvas stuff. Perfect!! The fact that it’s off-white shouldn’t make a lot of difference, should it??? Besides, it’ll be on the underside! I think a real replacement is in the future anyhow! So the cutting and taping began. Yup….taping! I used double-sided carpet tape to hold the tears closed AND hold the canvas piece in place for sewing…….brilliant, eh? No pinning, which is a good thing since this stuff is heavy!The blue is a denim patch from a previous mend job. Now, I got out my authentic, genuine Levi Jeans thread and a good heavy jeans’ needle…..and, “wha-la”…….this became one easy-peasy(?) task!!!Well, it’s done and #2 son will be pleased that his boat will have some level of protection in the coming months!
The next finish………well, I guess, will have to wait til next week. Supper beckons and so does DH! Have a great weekend!!!
