Yesterday we awoke to find more of this outside, yeah for us...
So the Mr. stayed home to work, yeah for me.....
There is just something about when he is home, it's as if a child is hanging on my hip again... There is so much I could say here, but really, you know.....
Have I ever told you I have a fabric addiction? Well, I do and have had for as long as I can remember. There has to be a support group for addicts like me. I just can't seem to resist fabulous fabrics and linens.
I have a linen closet packed to the rafters with great linens. I have a shelf packed with fabrics. I have a locker basket packed with fabrics. I have fabrics spread out in the guest room. I have an addiction.
I've always loved French Toile Fabrics. Something about the story that the pictures tell and make me wonder about. This fabric combination is for my latest box I made. I had the inspiration from a client who wanted something very similar, so as I was making hers, I was planning my own.
Yep, that's really burlap mixed with the French Toile fabric. I love it. It actually turned out slightly different than I envisioned, but better too. By the way, have I told you I "make" the boxes? Actual tablesaw cut, luann, measurements, and all? Well, I do. These are not cardboard or paper mach e boxes. These are challenging little wood boxes that I get a thrill out of covering with many fabrics and dressing up.
I have a small collection of the French Toile going on lately.. more than usual, is a better way of putting it. I love to mix the different prints and kinds of fabric to make an unexpected yet winning combination.
I have this tan toile on my bedroom curtains mixed with a burlap fabric. It looks great. To bad I can't get a decent picture to show ya', sorry.
The toile is popping up all over the house since I've been housebound thanks to the weather. I'll bet that the Mr. will be glad when it is decent outside and I can go OUT to play ;))
But until then, I'll have to entertain myself with all of this fabric loveliness.
I'll show you later the latest fabric project I've been working on. It has ruffles, toile, 'n all.... ;))
Have a great day Girls,
