And the bad blogger award goes to!?!  Wow, I know, I’ve been scarce, but I’m planning on making it up to you.  I’ve got some great projects in the works and will be sharing them with you super soon.  In the meantime, I have to share my latest fabric obsession with you.  I have been looking for the perfect black and white/linen fabric for this beaut

He has been sitting in the corner of our new office/den looking sad for far too long.  I was thinking of dripping him in this Chipper print by Premier Fabrics



but then I spied this…

It is called Stardust and it’s by Victoria Larson.  Is it not gorgeous??  And I love the inspiration behind the design

Created after a big, messy crafting session with my daughters that involved confetti. Rich, chocolate dots with a few bronzy highlights are scattered on a natural heavy Irish linen. The overall effect is almost animal print-like.


But wait, if you liked that one, then you might love this next one as much as I do, too…it’s Snow Leopard by Hinson & Co. and talk about animal print with class.

Talk about a dilemma.  I am literally obsessed with these fabrics, but every time I look at all of them together, the words of a certain Sesame Street song enters my head

One of these things is not like the others,

One of these things just doesn’t belong,

Can you tell which thing is not like the others

By the time I finish my song?

And if you guessed price, you would be correct.  The Premier Fabric is around $15 per yard whereas the other two are over $100 per yard.  Ouch…considering I need about 4 yards to recover my thrifted chair that cost me 20 bones.

Anyone know of any fabrics that I can add to my contenders with a price range more along the Premier side of things???  This girl and her sad chair would really appreciate it! 😉
