Want to come with me?
But first. . . Thanks so much for all of the encouragement after yesterday’s post. I wasn’t fishing for compliments, but boy, do I ever feel loved. So, thanks. Really. I appreciate every single one.
Okay, so I stopped by a local fabric store yesterday to start shopping for a Christmas project that I’m working on. (Yes, I know. . . ) And, I saw several new (non-Christmas related) fabrics at really good price points while I was there. It always helps me to see a fabric in person instead of just a stock photo of a pattern on my computer screen. Hope this helps you, too. . .
Really like the deep berries and golds in this one. A nice, non-traditional take on Fall colors. (Richloom “Aubusson” in coral.)
I loved this floral. Very modern and fresh. (Robert Allen Home “Lush Floral” in berry.)
I’ll be keeping this in mind for a small chair upholstery project I’m working on. I love the coordinating prints. (Lacefield Imperial in “bisque.”) It also comes in a pretty green color way:
A fresh take on polka dots. Several color options but the navy was my favorite. (Premier Prints “Freehand”)
It’s bright red, and I like it. This might be in my future. (Waverly “Peaceful Temple”)
I like this updated version of the popular trellis pattern. (P. Kaufmann “Fretwork” in mandarin.)
The colors in this one! (P. Kauffman “Sundance” in tangerine.)
By the way, my go-to sources for online fabric shopping these days are Online Fabric Store, Fabric.com and Tonic Living.

Great taste! I love all of those colors and patterns!
I live nearby Mary Jo’s, as well. I made cornice boards for my mom and used the Lacefield Imperial Trellis fabric, also in Bisque. They turned out beautiful! The P. Kauffman “Sundance” in tangerine has me thinking about a kitchen chair makeover. All of your selections are beautiful!
I have the Waverly Peaceful Temple fabric (from Tonic Living – my go to fabric store and they are Canadian!) made into a lumbar pillow with cream pom pom fringe. Love, love, love that fabric!
Wonderful finds! I love the first fabric the most, very charming!
hi Emily-my internet was cranky yesterday, so when I tried to read your post I couldn’t. or else I would have been chiming in with all the others! :-) just wanted to say that I check in on your blog EVERY day too. you and john & sherry are 2 of about, oh, about 4 that I read as soon as there’s something new. I’m really bummed about the hateful & entitled attitudes that cause angst for fabulous, giving bloggers like you, YHL and others.
just wanted to say thanks for what you do. it’s bright, fresh & inspiring. you have a great attitude and it comes across the screen. have a great day!
Love those! Especially the first and last ones!

I could spend days in that place! Love the first and last ones!

I’ve been looking for a great non-floral print for re-upholstering dining chairs to use in breakfast nook. I think the Lacefield Imperial may be the ticket. LOVE! Thanks for sharing. Fabric is my weakness. Eeeek.
I just came home from Mary Jos with 15 yards of the Downton fabric ( under the Sundance in Tangerine). I love that store !
I just adore you & your blog!! I have always wanted to comment but thought you were too busy to read anything I would write. :)
I now want to take the time & let you know how much I appreciate you & I read your blog every day. You are my favorite style blog. :)
Please keep doing what you are doing as I would miss you so much if you ever stopped!!
I know where you are! Such beautiful selections.

Fabrics are my passion — thanks for showing some beautiful fabric choices! It’s so nice to see patterns and vivid colors coming back onto the scene.
Fabric posts are some of my favorites! Keep’em coming…

Is it possible to love them all? I really think I need that updated trellis fabric in my house asap. :)

Hi Emily…first time commenting; sorry! My excuse for being a silent follower is pretty much the same as everyone else’s. The weird thing is the irony of enjoying how personal and friendly you are without responding in kind. I’ve also experienced the frustration of trying to comment on numerous blogs only to have it not work due to various sign in requirements. (Kind of like what happens at the cash register when trying to pay by debit…every machine has different quirks.)
Love the fabrics! As a lover of blues and greens I’m surprised by how drawn I am to orange lately.

Thanks for coming out of hiding :)
That Robert Allen floral would look great in your bedroom with its blues and blacks!
