Sounds like a perfect idea Spar. Our ducks are only out when we are home otherwise they
have a five star enclosure to protect them.
None of our doggies are allowed near them. As you know. You never know.
This if off the internet but looks almost exactly like our duck enclosure.
Ours is covered over the top and around all sides with huge stones around the perimeter
to keep out fox and skunk preditors.
We have the top covered due to hawks swooping down and trying to take them that way.
Poor ducks and chickens need all the protection we can give them.
We have geese that are the size of Buicks. Hilarious.
I love ducks and chickens. The eggs the hens lay are so much better than store bought.
As for the umbrella. I'm thinking like a light tan with oranges. greens and blue design to
drape over the umbrella.
Can you picture it?
The perfect fabric I would use are the Pareo's or Batik's. So full of vibrant color.
Fastening it will be something like gromets or if the fabric is too delicate which is the look
I want. Then I will fasten with some cute clips that maybe Pier One will have or a craft shop.
Clips in different colors would be cute and useful. Plus make it easy to remove the drape in
windy weather or rain.
I'm kind of getting excited to create this.
As for length I would have the drape just come over the edge of the umbrella only about a foot.
I may have to sew two lengths together.
Wendy. Thank goodness you are home and dh is OK. Prayers do work.
I hope you both take it easy. Rest is the name of the game.
I love fabric. I know we all do.
Here it is. Voila' I knew the Balinese would have them.
Only mine would be lighter so a little more sun could get thru.
I would also use a netting that has been designed. Tie dye would work.
Aren't these colors gorgeous.
Lunch is over so it's back to work for me. And thoughts of crafts.
