Sneeky little creatures

When I went outside the other morning to water the plants, I found that some little critter had gotten to the rocker in the gazebo.

The critter sure did a number on the cushion.  Now, I am not really all that upset about it.  The fabric is really faded from what used to be a bright, cheery pink and green floral print.  It is very tired and I had planned on starting to look for something new to put on it.  It looked so bad that I couldn't stand it and I didn't want to take the time to go on the "great search", so I hit the scrap boxes and found something I felt would pass for the summer. Less than an hour later and voila!  New cushion!  Thank goodness I had extra foam on hand! 
 I am sure it, too, will fade by the end of the year, but then I can flip it over and get next summer out of it, assuming Critter doesn't take another go at it.


  1. it looks cute and summery..hopefully critter has moved on to something yummier

  2. Yes, I hope the little guy, or big guy has moved on, but I wouldn't count on it. A couple of years ago one or more critters unstufed the chaise cushions! Can't quite figure out what they are looking for!
