|An attempt to fix the old canopy|
Last summer I watched the sales and ended up getting fabric and better cushion stuffing that will not attract squirrels for 1/2 off. The new update made me happy. I also bought fabric to cover a couple of forms to make coordinating pillows. That makes it a great place to sit and read or chat with an iced tea and good friends

The other thing I attempted was to zig-zag up the places on the canopy that had ripped from wear. That part of the project ended up in disappointment last summer when after spending all of the time to fix it, two new rips developed as I tried to stretch the cover over the frame. Needless to say, I put aside the idea of having an updated canopy.
It was the end of the summer when there was another sale and I got enough coordinating fabric to remake the canopy but I didn't have it in me to follow through. I do have to say, the cushions didn't stay on very well and so this weekend I remedied that by making ties for them before I put them out for the season. They now will be tied in place for this summer and I am pretty happy with the results.
