And that’s why I should have learned how to use a sewing machine.
The camo netting I use as top cover for the Lair’s chicken yard is falling apart.
Couple of weeks ago a Generous Reader sent me a section of new camo netting. Not enough to replace the whole top cover, but maybe enough to replace the windward side.
It was kind of an awkward size, roughly 16′ by 4′. So I divided it in half, pinned the halves together, then cut them into two pieces.
Then this afternoon, with nothing else on my plate at all, I proceeded to v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y sew them back together with heavy waxed thread.
This isn’t the first sewing project of this sort I’ve encountered. It doesn’t happen often. But whenever it does, I wish I’d taken the time to learn how to use a sewing machine.
Still, at last it’s done. And if tomorrow doesn’t blow a gale – never a safe bet in Spring – I’ll see about fixing the top cover.
