Walking the fabric aisle at Hobby Lobby gets my juices flowing. The colors, the textures, the possibilities- it makes me long to buy every yard of fabric I fall in love with and create something! This particular combination may seem a bit childlike but they are so merry and bright, I want them in the kitchen:
The only hitch in my dream? I cannot sew.
Actually, I take that back. Two years ago I made my own poodle skirt for a Halloween outfit. The result was not pretty and therefore, I promptly moved on to the next best thing: buying pre-made costumes. But, now that I am starting to look for things to put into my new home I find that what I have in mind is not readily available. Therefore, I am adding a new goal to my 2010 resolutions list: teach myself how to sew. The results may not be immediately pleasing to the eye but I've seen the prices of throw pillows & they are a bit over the top. This is one beast I am prepared to tackle.
