While my personal delivery system required several days to complete, I finished feeling happy and knowing much more about my town and its merchants. I vowed then to do my best to only buy from local stores with local proprietors, skipping the big box discount monoliths that have intruded and run many out of business. Their prices may be better on some items but they are not good to their employees and they do not exude a sense of belonging to our town. So far I have been very successful with my purchasing and have had a great time as well and l know I am making a difference for local businesses.
Do you want a separate area to dine and a separate sitting area? Will you need to pour a patio? This is the time to make these decisions. There is a large trend to build expansive decks for dining and entertaining. However, this doesn`t mean that you have to spend a lot of money. Rocks or mulch can be used to create a separate space. Stepping stones can be placed to create a path to and from the seating area. Keep in mind that you probably don`t want you segmented space within your yard to take up more than a third of the space. This means that if you have 300 square feet of yard space, you`ll want to designate only 100 square feet of it to a patio, deck or other type of material.
On the second stop the shop was bustling, exciting for a fledgling business, but the owner had plenty of time for me. We found a perfect outdoor fabric in greens, tans, and reds, measured out the yards, found thread and stuffing for pillows and my sewing adventure began. I have sewn off and on over the years so I have experience, but I am not a regular at my machine. Fortunately it is a trusty Singer, a graduation gift 42 years ago, and it runs with glee. I gathered up my old cushions, washed and dried them, shook the stuffing back into every corner, and then set them atop my fabric. I cut one large cover for my favorite rocking chair and fashioned two pillows for my swing (one a cover-over and the other a new creation). After seams were in place I shoved in the old cushions, stitched up the hole left for stuffing, and had sparkling new ones.
