What we Love - October 12, 2010

October 11, 2010

Fall is officially here, and I for one am ready for a change. Despite the fact that it will be 85 degrees in the Beautiful South today, I am wearing my new grey boots. The salesman helping me in the shoe store asked me if I was sure I didn't want the brown ones. I told him confidently that I definitely wanted the grey boots even though I was questioning my decision as well. As it turns out, grey is very neutral in my wardrobe, and I will wear them often. Take a little fashion risk this season. I'll bet you find you made a sound decision despite the initial pang of throwing  practicality to the wind.

So, in the spirit of my new-found fashion bravery, and the fact that I want you to be a little brave as well, let's take a look at what I love this week - Soft Skin Faux Leather. It is a lightweight vinyl with a white flannel back. You will line a garment made from Soft Skin Faux Leather. It meets a few of this seasons trends: metallic and leather. Vests are still a fashion staple held over from last year, and I think this fabrication would make a cute vest. It would also make great trim on a jacket, or a cute handbag or clutch.

Vickie loves the Storybook VII collection from Windham fabrics. Vickie has been working on our Reproduction Quilting fabrics, and this collection fills the bill. She likes the fact that the collection ''tells the story of young Tim and Sue. How Sue rescues her brother Tim from the apple tree.'' The retro colors are appropriate for children's clothing as well as serious quilts in a reproduction style.

Shannon has been perusing our Home Decor books lately. Shannon is about to be a newlywed, and is joining two households. The book she loves is Material World: Home Decor Projects for the Fabric Obsessed. ''This book has lots of unique ideas for home d├ęcor! With a new husband and a new home, this little book is perfect for satisfying my need for crafting and decorating!'' Shannon is an accomplished apparel sewer and also loves to crochet. I look forward to see what inspiration she uses from

this fantastic home decor book.

I hope you find some inspiration in what we love this week!

I am definately fabric obsessed!!I love to buy new fabric even tho I don`t have a purpose in mind yet,but I will!!!I am moving in with my mother to help her as she gets older and her health fails her more and more.We`re making a lot of changes so this book would really come in handy now!!

Fabric obsessed...YES! I have been creating for everyone else, now it's time for me. Hope to win this book.

This looks like another good sewing book. Can never have enough of them! I love to read this type of book (and cookbooks) like novels in front of the fire and TV. Yes... the TV! I cannot just sit and watch TV, I feel guilty somehow....
