A Glimpse of Things to Come

Fabric is my weakness.  Addiction might be a better word.  If I know there is a fabric store in the vicinity of where I am, I can hear it calling my name, beckoning me to walk through the doors.  You see, if I go in, I'm not coming out empty handed!  How could I?  The colors, patterns and textures conspire to make me fall in love with them and bring them home!  Just look at what I was recently forced thrilled to bring home and call my own!

This fun fabric will be reservisible placemats. (I think!)  Really perfect for a coffee themed kitchen.

I found a quilt shop in Williamsburg and wasn't about to leave empty handed!  However, I did leave with an empty wallet!  Probably, these will become placemats or maybe an apron or two.  Haven't quite decided yet.

Here's a glimpse of a project I've already started working on.  I found the vintage table scarf in Williamsburg and the fabric after I came home.  I can't wait to show you the finished project.  It's something new for me but something I've wanted to do for a very long time!  I hope it turns out!

Here's something else I found in Williamsburg at the antique center.  It's not vintage but that's ok!  The important thing is that it was only $8.50 and was perfect for another project I've been wanting to try! 

Look at the gorgeous detail at the top!


 That should be enough to keep me busy for a while.  If only I didn't have to do the laundry, clean the house, cook meals, run errands......


  1. Loving all of it. The yellow fabric with the table scarf looks like something I would lay out for an apron..I'm intrigued /:-) Looks like you came home with some lovely finds.
