Bedroom Update 1

 Did ya'll see this was update 1..  Why, cause I may do several before its all done.  I think I know exactly where I'm headed though..
here are excuses//reasons:)
1. daughter was sick for 3 days- slept- so no noise could be made..
2. Carpenter= who I need to do a little configuring on the craigs list headboard I bought- his kids were sick.
3. Carpenters kids got better and Carpenter and his Wife- SICK- so I kept the kids here so they could get well in peace and quiet.
4.  Miss Buffy- ya'll remember the pom who sat on my newly stenciled pillows at Christmas.. She had a few seizures. We changed meds and she's been ok since.

so thats been the last 5 days and no decor involved..
 I do want to thank you all for your encouragement and for liking my new bedding..  I will get this accomplished- seriously I will..
I ordered some fabric and it should be here today.  Not sure if it'll be used in the bedroom or the living room.
 Thats what I like about my black and white color theme though- if it doesnt work in one room, there are 6 other rooms it just might work it OR  just swapping the family room pillows for the bedroom pillows gives me enough of a change to keep me from doing something crazy like redoing an entire room lol.. especially if it doesnt need doing cause whats there is probably less than 6 months old. 

so here's the fabric..this photo is large but the actual pattern is about 5 inches apart.  keys are a lot closer to each other- thank goodness..
 I got a few emails about this fabric so..

  1. It is hard to work when you have sick ones at home! Love the key fabric....

  2. Wow, lots of people sick and then your poor doggie having problems, too. Nice fabric and can't wait to see the reveal.

  3. Hi Sonny,
    You have had a few delays there, sure hope you don't catch anything!!

    Really like your new fabric, very pretty, and different. I am wanting to do something different as far as window dressings for my family room, so have my thinking cap on, and once I get done with packing away all the Christmas stuff I will start going thru books and looking online for ideas............and
    also looking at fabric too. Sometimes that can
    be a real inspiration piece for sure.

    Stay well my friend,
    Blessings, Nellie

  4. Sonny, I am so sorry to read that the plague is keeping you from your bedroom update. I hate it when that happens. Hopefully you will not give it.
    Love the graphic feel of the fabric. It will look fabulous with your bedding. And what a great idea about having the same color scheme run through your home so you can switch items around easily.

  5. It seems like when one thing goes wrong, everything goes wrong! I hope your carpenter is back on his feet!

    I love the fabric...I wish I could sew. Even to make a pillow! I can't wait to see what you have been up to!


  6. Thanks for the heads up on the fabric site.
    I am trying to decide on bedroom window dressings..not a big fan of curtains but......
    I'll go over and take a look at their fabrics.

  7. Great fabric choice..will check out this iste girl..Thanks for the infor..Sorry about the kids being sick..I also have had it for over a week now YUCK!! hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  8. Sonny, wow, you have had a series of unfortunate delays. You'll get there eventually. The fabric you chose is so pretty! You're right. It will work wherever you decide to use it. That's the beauty of your color scheme. Hope everyone gets well soon!

  9. You'll get there, Sonny! It seems like everyone is getting sick! Great fabric and I can't wait to see how you use it.

  10. WOW Sonny what a week!! No worries it will all get done. LOVE that fabric! Hope your daughter and little fur baby are feeling better. It seems like everyone is sick lately:(

  11. Sonny,
    You're having issues with illness at your house and the carpenters...I've been having computer (techie) issues here! Hopefully we'll both be back on track soon! Interesting new fabric! I don't care to sew, but many times inspiration will come from fabrics. I get creative surges from their texture, patterns and touch! Here's to a better week ahead for the both of us!

  12. Love that fabric. It sounds like EVERYONE has been sick there. I know that nothing gets done when there are sick kids, etc. Not only that but there is all the extra work on top of the regular stuff. Here's to a flu free week- xo Diana

  13. So sorry to hear about all the illness up your way. You are one in a million to take care of everyone like you did. Your fabric will work in your home and you will know the spot for it, when it arrives. Won't you? Glad things are about to be normal...whatever normal is. Black is my favorite color..love it!

  14. I hope everyone is feeling better, so many people getting sick here, too.
    I love your fabric, very nice!
    Hugs, Cindy

  15. Now how did I miss this update! I sure hope that everyone is feeling better now. So far no illnesses here. Getting excited for the big reveal....love that fabric. Have a wonderful day, Gail

  16. Sonny, hang in there. Better days are coming and that means that your bedroom reveal will soon be making me swoon! Can't wait, can't wait.

  17. I can't wait to see it Sonny, love black and white, can't go wrong with that color combo! Hope everyone is feeling better today!

  18. The fabric is way cool and can't wait to see how you use it. Murphy's Laws cover construction too ~ for everyone. You'll be back on track soon.
