Drapery fabric from the 1960s rescued and renewed. A couple of weeks ago while at a show, Adam left to go to the store as I had forgotten the tissue paper at home that I normally stuff the bags with while they are on display. I was having a neurotic Virgo moment and couldn't imagine the day going on without properly fluffed bags (sad, I know). He so kindly offered to run out, no problem, find a store and pick some up. Oh thank you, thank you love.
He returned with the goods, and then told me I needed to go check out an estate sale up the road. They seemed to have a lot of fabric, thread, things like that. He'd take care of things at the craft booth, I should go, and take my time.
I need to interrupt here to say that all morning he was anxious to drive the 1 1/2 hours to the show, deposit me and my wares, and bid farewell quickly as he and Emily set off to hike a section of the AT that was close by. Maps were in hand, hydration bladders were filled, snacks were stocked, and the sky was sapphire blue. I delayed them at least an hour.
So off I went, and how grateful I was to have such a wise, supportive partner. I mean look at that fabric! A man that alerts his wife of a fabulous fabric stash, and insists she checks it out?! Oh yeah, a good man indeed.
And guess what? All five bags in the first photo came from one panel, there are seven more panels to work with... a very good man. Pop over to the shop for a closer look if you'd like, there are three in there. As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope your day is full of fresh air and sunshine.
Update: Wow! Those went quickly, thank you so much. Maybe I'll get into those other seven panels sooner than later... ;)
