Do you love the fabric store as much as I do? On my last trip, I found these gorgeous embroidered fabrics and some really beautiful trim.
I love the poofy fringe...reminds me of one of those crazy creamy colored chickens!
This braided one will be a great addition to a pillow or lampshade...maybe a duvet.
These green embroidered leaves make me smile. This will make perfect pillows that will work year round. It's linen and would make a gorgeous curtain for my back door, as well. So many ideas, too little time.
This fabric had mind control over me the minute I walked in. Ladies, please clear the way! It's mine.
Soft turquoise linen with beige crewel work. Yummy. Yes, I said yummy.
Front or back? I love both sides equally.
Pleats...madly in love with this. I just started experimenting with one of those pleating tools. I'm getting the hang of it, but this saved me loads of time and money- since I probably would have ruined it. Usually at the very, very end of a project that I'm crazy for- the Screw Up Fairy pays me a visit. I've been trying to swat that little irritant down, but she keeps getting away.
Can't wait to get to work with these...just as soon as I finish up the twenty other projects I'm working on.
Does it ever end?
We all know the answer is a resounding NO! It's loads of work and we pay for it with aching backs and sore fingers, but for those who love to create- the satisfaction is enough.
And, a job well done is chocolate for the soul.
Not chicken soup, chocolate. : )
Have a great weekend!
Til next time,
