Hello friends, so glad your here. My man left on an overnight trip and I am playing at being a single lady for a couple of days.
Hmmmmm....what should I do? What would I do if I was unattached again?
Well to start with, I would make myself a lovely stack of fresh blueberry whole grain pancakes...sugarfree syrup, of course. Pass the fiber and hold the sugar please!
Hubby does not like Pancakes, so I get them while I can. They were sooooo good.
Once they were devoured, I got really wild and went in search of something else to get wild and crazy with...
Ahem......down here ladies!!
My local high end designer fabric shop has a huge sale twice a year. I try to never miss this event. It is where I get all my fabulous remnant home decor fabric that I would normally never be able to afford. Many of these pieces are from the finest fabric houses in Europe. Some are hundreds of dollars a yard..crazy, right?
I just love these!
I threw them all in the washer and when I removed them from the dryer, they were all so soft and had that wonderful aged linen dish towel feel to them....heaven!
Click on the photo to really appreciate the soft nubbiness that washing achieved.
These fabrics are so well made and I believe they will only improve with age and washing.
Wouldn't this linen fern print make a great pillow cover?
I can't stop touching these fabrics...I think it's a sickness.
Very pretty French bistro look on this one. I found with this blue background and a piece with a pale pink background. Chic French themed apron anyone??
This piece cought my eye because it reminded me of vintage European dishtowels.
When I washed this, the embroidered design in the middle became more pronounced and textural..LOVE IT !!
This fabric reminded me of the dress fabric on a doll I was given as a child. The doll was made in the Europe.
See what I mean?
I was really attracted to the colors in this gorgeous yardage. Hard to see, but it is a satin sheened cotton.
It lost some of that sheen in the wash, but that only made it more vintage looking.
Love how some of the print was bold..
and some parts were very watercolorish and muted..so pretty.
I walked out of the shop with lot's of treasures, but guess what?
Each piece cost fifty cents...no, that's not a typo.....50 cents!!!!
Now I have go hide the evidence of my wild and crazy time as a single lady before my man gets home. Can't let him catch me with fabric threads on my collar and I begged the saleslady never to call me at home..that would be a sure giveaway.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
