I know it's been a while and I have gotten some flack. Here I am.
What have I been doing? Living life with a toddler and procrastinating on fixing my software issues. They are fixed now and I can share more of what I have been doing!
Back in May when I was in Chicago I dragged my sister to the south side to check out a huge fabric warehouse. She was not so excited about the whole thing and noted the flashing police cameras on the corner. I assured her that we were safe - surely we were, right?
Well that place was unreal. You definitely had to know what you were in there for or else you would get totally overwhelmed and lost! Imagine a huge warehouse with bolts of fabric from floor to ceiling - two floors, actually.
I found a few things I was looking for...One was this zebra print fabric for our t.v. room upstairs. I wanted an animal print for the sofas and this one fit the bill.
I used Amy Butler's formula for decorative pillows featured in her book Midwest Modern. I liked the pattern because they finished nicely and didn't require zippers - fewer materials, less trouble. They are envelope pillows...
One more thing...Sam and I have been enjoying the summertime here in Knoxville. Yesterday we went to the sprinkler park and here's a snapshot of our morning. He loved checking out the other kids - he is such a social little guy. :)
Happy Thursday. I'll be back.
