With the temperature nearing 90 today, there is little to do but hang out in the pool.
Trouble is, the blistering sun is just too much! What to do in a situation like this? Why make a pool canopy of course.
Thanks to an overflowing cabinet of fabric (bought last year when we offered a local garage sale owner a flat price for her entire garage filled with fabric, yarn, sewing notions, etc.), an old badminton pole, some heavy duty staples, garden twine, and an ever resourceful husband and always clever daughter....together they devised a cool looking, functional, free pool canopy, providing a bit of shade for our swimmers.
