Sew Fun at Home



I have so much fun working with lots of bright colors for my customers, but my home already has the fall colors of wheat, olive, chocolate and deep red. My husband won't let me change it all out as that would be a huge undertaking, so I've struggled to get the fabric designs I love into my home. I recently found the Thomas Paul fabric that's on the pillow at fabric.com & thought it worked well with the bird theme & color scheme already in place. I pulled together the caramels, chocolates and saffrons from recent collections from Sandi Henderson, Joel Dewberry, Jennifer Paganelli, Anna Maria Horner, Michael Miller & Moda. I used one voile to see how I liked it mixed in, and it works well. That particular color is really hard to find, but it matches well with Sandi Henderson's Fresh Cut Flowers in maize. My living room is finally ready for fall. I have some fabric pumpkins in the making and if I finish them before the end of fall, I'll post about them! :)

Wouldn't it be nice to have free reign with our fabric favorites in our homes? Of course, no one else might want to live with us in that environment. :)
