Okay, here ya go. So, this spring's project was new cushions for all of the garden furniture, and new 'drapes' for the gazebo. I used a fabric complimentary to what I used for my lawn swing last year (which is out in front). Here's the lawn swing:

These are the cusions that I made for the chaise lounges: (we're in the shade garden now)...

Cushions for the table chairs:

cushions for the bar stools, high table, and if you look on the fence in the back, I made "camp stools" that match (they are hanging folded on the fence):

The gazebo (still part of the shade garden) with the draperies and "pillow wraps" that I made:

The "roof" of the gazebo is hops plants that are growing in whiskey barrels behind the draperies:

The container plants portion of the shade garden, I made the curtains for the potting bench to match the gazebo:

So there you have it... lots of fabric in the garden!

Wow! You have a great backyard "destination." Love your fabric choices. I think my favorite has to be that cool swing out front, tho! Do you spend a lot of time outside in your shade garden? I'd be out there reading all summer! Nice place.

Dear Husband and I do spend all summer out there... resting when we're taking a break from gardening or other projects, entertaining friends, having cocktails, and tonight we sat there as long as we could while it poured down rain all around us... the trees give us a lot of natural cover. Thanks for the nice comments!

wonderful Brenda... you've a bunch of nice rooms there... the fabric does make it look inhabited to a much higher degree... comfortable and attended to..

A beautiful place to spend time relaxing. I think I'm going to run away from home and come and live in your yard. Just love everything you have done, pictures should be published in a magazine.
