a little freshening up,,,

these pillows and daybed have been on our deck for a couple of years now.
we neglected to cover them during the recent surprise rain storm
so i've had to strip their cases in order to launder them.

in the meantime, while the covers were hanging on the line,
i found new (actually thrifted, but new-to-me) fabric
and a quilt cover at our local thrift shop

it didn't take me long to finish the new pillow cases.

after cutting the fabric (repurposing an old bed sheet),
i did all the sewing by hand,
while marathon watching all of season five of 'recreating eden'.

and voila....

i'm very pleased with my finished project.
i love little, inexpensive projects like this that freshens things up a little bit.
this lounge is a favourite spot for all of us and gets used all the time.
it totally deserved this make-over.

now we are ready for the weekend !!!
