Fabric and More

This morning I took myself out to a relaxing breakfast at the cutest French bakery here in Lexington.  I took a bunch of photos with my iphone and will be sure to blog about it later.



They have done everything right at this patisserie, and I love it. I actually mentioned this place last winter when I gave you a how-to on making butter.

As soon as I finished, I stopped by a neighboring fabric shop and scored big.



Fabric swatches - The 2 Seasons

I managed to buy six fabric samples that measure 20 by 20 inches for 50 cents each.  That is not a typo.  It says fifty cents EACH!!!  Can you believe it?  That means that by using some drop cloth that I already have on hand for the backing and some pillow forms that I have, also, I can sew up six pillows in designer fabric for a total of $3.00.  Major S.C.O.R.E.  They will mix and match with the other fabrics and colors we use in these parts.  It’s exciting to think that I can make them all at one time, store them away, and pull out what I want when it’s time to switch things up around here.



Future garden walkway - The 2 Seasons

Meanwhile, Jordan has a project of her own going on all the way up there in New York.  Here’s a teaser photo for you.  It involves her back yard but hopefully, not her back (if you know what I mean).  I’ll let her give you a show and tell when it is ready.

Thank you all for stopping in.  We will see you back here tomorrow.




Take care.
