I have a set of wicker furniture that I use on my screened in porch. The set needs new cushions including foam and batting as well as the fabric. I’ve been putting off doing them because it’s quite a bit of work to get the covers onto the foam and either sew up the eam or put a zipper in.
Instead of covering cushions with fabric slip covers, I plan to buy a piece of wood to use as a base for the foam and batting. Then I will put on the fabric and staple to the underside of the wood. As far as I can think, this would be ok except that the cushions would not be reversible. It seems that this be easier and faster to do it this way, and I would use less fabric because there is no bottom. I am debating about putting cording around the base of the cushion or just rounding the edge.
I don’t think the cushions would sit higher off the floor because I would not use a think piece of wood, just enough to hold the staples.
If anyone’s done this or has any comments I would appreciate it.
Finally, I am back to writing my blog. I like to keep track of my thoughts and this is the best way for me to do it. It’s a beautiful, sunny day here at Lake Anna. I am looking forward to my children and grandchild coming for the weekend. I have to get the boat cleaned up today and get it started. Hopefully, I won’t have too much trouble. I also have to get some gas for it. Weekends at the Lake are wonderful.
Today I posted a necklace I made for the Summer. It’s abalone shell also known as paua shell. It has great colors of iridescent blue, green and some white. I think it will go great for a lot of Summer events like picnics, pool parties (without going in the pool), and with a cool sundress. More information about the necklace is available at my website: http://yessy.com/wmj
I will take some pictures of the lake and boat and post them later.

Having lunch at a restaurant at Seneca Caverns, and sharing the room with this guy.
Took a ride on a steam train recently. Fun time in West Va. even if it did rain a little.
My sister and I, and our 2 pets were travelling back from Florida to Virginia on Monday. I guess we took too long for lunch, and our ‘guys’ wanted to get going before we were ready. I’m not sure which one would drive and which would use the floor pedals. But I know they think they are in charge!
