Wednesday, December 8

Sick day, my new obsessions, and other miscellaneous news.

I think the only way for me to get anything posted these days is to be on my death bed. I can't remember the last time I was this sick, it's been a few years. I'm not usually one for sick days either. I can usually take a DayQuil and be fine, but not this time. Such a waste of a day to be home but not able to be productive. The dust bunnies are safe for a few more days.

My clumsy self broke the camera this weekend, well, one of them. Of course it's the one we use the most because it has a great rechargeable battery. I dropped it, with the lens open, so now all I get is an error message and can't even get to the photos on the memory card. Hopefully the lovely people at Canon can help us out, and keep it on the cheap side. I did the same thing to my own camera last year, but it was less than a year old and still under warranty. I may have fibbed a little as to how the damage actually occurred in order to get it fixed for free.

I am hooked on a new website; I arrived home yesterday to find a box of goodies I'd ordered online on Black Friday, all at great prices. Most of what I found was $5.58 per yard, with free shipping, and I also found a coupon code for 15% off my total order. I'm not sure what most of the fabric is going to be used for yet, but I didn't want to miss out on some of these prints.

This grayish-blue and white cotton print is going to be used to recover the seats on the pair of dining chairs for my sister.

I'm obsessed with this fabric. If I could, I'd buy every yard they have in stock. For now I purchased it in a few colors, including charcoal (seen here), candy pink, chartreuse, and corn yellow. I would have gotten more but it was sold out in a few colors at the time. It is a medium weight cotton duck, and it would be perfect for drapes or throw pillows. It's like a grown up, ethnic version of polka dots.

I also purchased a few yards of this zig zag print in several colors, including the chartreuse/ivory seen here, corn yellow/natural, titan blue/ivory, and a light blue/natural. You could go in a lot of different directions with this fabric. It has this timeless vintage-modern vibe that could go with just about anything.

This pretty print also came in a variety of color patterns, but I settled on this gray and ice blue combo. It's got a classic feel, but is hip and trendy at the same time.

So there's a sample of my new stockpile. Now I just need to get sewing and recovering. My mom brought me this great little bench that needs some love, choosing which fabric to use will not be an easy task.
