Speaking Yardage Wise

We interrupt the seemingly endless — and not-so-great-smelling — job of scraping off 30 years of kitchen grease for a sun-kissed, vintage fabric interlude. Take a breath of this:


French Babar from 1968, pink flowers on Swiss Dot, blue flowers on Seersucker, five yards of Border Print, and other tasty goodies. Thanks to my mother-in-law and an awesome rummage sale. It was a welcome respite to this moving business.

I love it! There's nothing better than brightly colored fabric fluttering on the clothesline in the sun, either. You have a great blog.

If you had told me twenty years ago that I'd be oohing and aaahing over pictures of fabric, I'd've thought you were nuts!
