Sew It Goes

This afternoon David and I headed out to Fairview to make a few stops at Home Depot, fabric stores, Hobby Lobby, Best Buy and the mall. I had a couple things on my list and pretty much got what I needed. My DIY planters are glued and drying over night--I'll post pics on Sunday probably, because you are not supposed to move them for 24 hours. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, go here.

David and I had some funny times at the fabric store today. We pulled up and the parking lot was jam packed---when we walked in there was a mini-seminar going on with numerous women of all ages milling about and having a great {loud} time. David was totally out of his element and couldn't find another guy in the whole store. He was such a trooper though, and I adore his patience with me!

Why was I at a fabric store? Well, I think I want { my mom ;-) }to make new curtains for the bedroom and possibly a chair cover/pad for my office chair {please stay tuned for this post later}! This is the fabric I am loving right now for the bedroom and I went in search of it.
I have not found a fabric that screams out to me for the office chair just yet.

I didn't find the above fabric, but I did find some other fun ones that I took pictures with on my cell {please excuse the quality--the colors are not representative of their true hues}.

This one looks fun for our back porch sitting area! It's a black and white Moorish pattern.
This one is a brown and green smaller version of the ever-popular trellis fabric!
This one is brown and green, too, and I think it has potential for the bedroom.

My mom doesn't know she's in contention to be my #1 seamstress, but she will as soon as she reads this {love you, mom!}.

Sweet Dreams, I need to hit the hay! ♥
