A reminder that whether we like it or not Summer has finally been and gone
After a glorious warm and sunny Easter weekend it was all change
Yesterday – Tuesday – was wet….it rained…that strange rain that just hangs there and makes everything wet. Skies were grey and misty – cool, chilly but not really cold. We shouldn’t grizzle about the drizzle or is it mizzle….it hasn’t rained for a while, the ground is dry- very dry and thirsty. With a bit of luck it will encourage some green to wander over to the bare patch discovered when I cut back the gazania that had decided to ’make a move to freedom’ or maybe had decided it wanted long dangly curls instead of the short back and sides it was given before Christmas
Yesterday was when I glanced round a soggy garden remembering how inviting the little shady nook under those low branches had looked during the summer.
When it got hot on the deck I’d nip down there, book in hand, carrying cushions for the chairs and a cloth for the table. Food and drinks followed soon after.
Yesterday in the rain that white plastic table and chairs set looked old, tired and grotty
Next summer we’ll invest in new but what to do with the old?
spending time moving from one craft blog to another researching I discovered that rather than just toss the chairs I could always do THIS…..👇
Knit decorative chair covers!
That would certainly use up a lot of my stash wouldn’t it😊😊
And if you’re really keen and the idea appeals there’s a pattern HERE.
It’s not a new idea, in fact if you look long and hard you’ll find there’s a whole world of them out there!
