Choosing My Cool Weather Fabrics

  Howdy Folks.

 We had another cool and rainy day here in NC. I'm not complaining cause I've wished for cooler temps and here they are. Makes it feel much more like fall when it isn't 90 outside.

  It took me awhile but I believe I've finally found the fabrics for the Great room.
 This open concept home allows many areas to be seen at the same time and with that in mind fabrics need to flow gently from one to the other so my eyes don't go wonky as I look around.

  Below are some of the fabrics I choose and their intended use, though that's always subject to change, kinda like my mind:-)

  I have a few surprise fabrics that you'll see when I show off this space.
 As many of you know I have 3 little Pom Girls and I decided its time for them to have their own decorated areas.  I laid out fabrics on the floor and let them walk around and sniff them.  2 finally made a choice and took a nap on their choice and Miss 3 get's the other cause that's what she gets for being so indecisive .

   I think I bought enough to have some leftovers from each fabric and I'll make each of us a lap quilt.

 I hear ya'll whispering- Hush Sonny and show us the dang fabric... ok ok

                                                                     Drapery choice

ottoman covers and table runners

dining chair seat

another pillow choice

There's a grey on white polka pot that I did'nt get a photo of and also a pale grey on white chevron.
I want pillows in the dining chairs and I have a 30x36 area to cover in the kitchen cabinet where I removed the doors for display shelves.
 Please wish me luck with all this sewing.. I'm gonna need it .  

Thanks for visiting me.  Its always a joy to have ya here.
