The fabric and the drink! So, I’ve been lusting over these fabulous patchwork cottons over at Gorgeous Fabrics since Ann posted them.
A few days ago, Ann made this fresh and pretty plaid skirt and then today Phyllis posted this beautiful shirt. I swear, Phyllis, you read my mind! I was looking at them yesterday – trying to make a decision – and thinking that the Vari-Print would make a great summer shirt. I had better make up my mind soon because you know the mad dash that ensues when we see a fabric sewn up!
I’ve narrowed it down to Vari-Print
and Tutti-Fruity (at least I think I have…)
Check out the cool link that Phyllis just sent me!
And, (non-sewing-related) it’s “just like a big diamond!”. That was the Ebay seller’s description and he was right. I’ve been looking at these cut-glass knobs for awhile but they were pretty expensive ($12-15 each). Since I needed nine for my vanity I decided to look around some more. Then last week I found a seller in China who had them, with shipping, for just over $3 each. And, yippee skippee, they really are beautiful. Right now I’m sure you’re thinking “cut glass with travertine? rustic with refined?”. What can I say? I like the juxtaposition of casual/dressy, rough/smooth. I haven’t put them on yet but what’s the worst that can happen? I don’t have much invested and can always save them for something else. Honestly, if I could buy the old glass door knobs I’d get them too – how fun would that be?
If you’re looking for knobs like this, the seller’s name is Valen0311. Here is a link. Shipping was pretty quick too.
