Hanging Upholstery Fabric To Dry

Hello friends, I hope you're all doing well during these unprecedented times. We've been hunkered down for quite a while and trying to make the most of all our free time.

At first, there were big lists and grand plans to exercise, clean up and out, read and write and craft. However, as reality set in, here in NY, the motivation to do much more than disinfect and enjoy each other's company has faded.

But we are still crafting and creating.

Perhaps you hadn't noticed, but I have a thing for pretty fabric. I don't know when it started, this obsession of mine, all I know is that I love being surrounded by beautiful patterns.

There are valances on every window, skirts on tables and chairs, pleats covering my glass cabinets and pillows everywhere.

Oh those pillows.

Many years ago, on the way back from a trip out east, we stopped at a farmstead. There are lots of them out there and they're all so sweet, it's impossible to skip one.

Even when they're all selling the same thing. Sunflowers, strawberries, tomatoes and corn.

Oh. And pie.

Lots of pie.

It was time to update my master bathroom. It only took a few inexpensive swaps to get a completely different room. Well, that and a few months.

Waverly Fabric Paisley Verveine Spring Green

Almost a year ago, I told my husband that I was done with our old, jetted bathtub and it had to go. Unbeknownst to me at the time, that one simple sentence started us down a path of big change.

Unexpected change.

And change that's still occurring all over the house.
