the things he does...

so you've heard me talk about what an amazing man super hubby is...

he's also VERY handy... and when the cover for this....

needed replacing this summer... he decided to sew a new one... why the sourcing wizard didn't find one on line i'm not quite sure... because he could have gone here for half the price and about 15 minutes of work :)

instead he did this... i think he liked the challenge...

first he took the old one apart to make a pattern...


Then he carefully sewed together all 18 or so panels...


Then he got out the ladder to put it on...



and has been enjoying it ever since...


and yes it's perfect!!!
