Busy Busy Busy ...

Well, I ended my vacation with a shopping trip to Len's Mills I wasn't looking for anything specific - always a bad time to shop in a fabric store! Anyway, I came out with this cute fabric panel. I don't usually indulge (in fact almost never) in cheater panels, but somehow this one took my fancy, so here we are one week later ... um, yes, it's hand quilted. I just needed something to stitch. Ever get that feeling?
So, approx. 3 weeks ago I told you all about my score at the Goodwill - 2 Fabulous Eastlake chairs. Come to think about it, I was looking for upholstery fabric @ Len's, yeah, that's why I went - they had a buy one get the second meter for 1/2 price. Unfortunately they didn't have what I had in mind. Actually all has turned out to be another score - I found the EXACT fabric I had in my mind @ Fabricland, for are you ready ... $3.50 a meter (on sale of course) It's a pinky rose (I LOVE red) in a kind of square weave with a dark brown/green squarish dot. So .... I just had to buy the whole bolt! (actually just a little over 6 meters). This fabric should match with the green Hydrangea and the Beige Hydrangea prints I have in my living room. Now I have another project to finish, hopefully before Sept! I have put off beginning my niece's wedding quilt until then. Wish me luck!

That panel is too cute! And I love home decor weight fabric, esp to reupholster things or make slip covers. I got some for a steal at a couple of weeks ago. Amazing to get it that cheap! Great job. :) Look forward to seeing the chairs.
