a big thank you to my mom!

making progress on my simplicity 700. I am going to start a write up on the restoration shortly.

anyway the seat was shot so I cut new plywood, found some old seat foam and ordered up some white vinyl online. I was able to use the old seat cover as a pattern and cut out the shapes. took it all up to mom's and she dusted off the old Kenmore sewing machine and she did the rest.

I was more worried about all acorns stashed in the old seat and some crazy old squirrel coming back for them

Very good. I recently read a good quote, something like.... if someone else made it, you can fix it!
