My Fab!

I love fabric, and I am an huge fan of the incredible designs by Anna Maria Horner. I am always drawn to her patterns and palettes. She is mother to five with one more on the way! Wow, she is really an inspiration. Check out her blog here to get a wee glimpse.

Last year I made a shower curtain from sketchbook in ivory and pillows from branching out - both from her Drawing Room line.

Yesterday I received this stack of fabric from an amazing etsy shop afabricoutlet. It is from Horner's latest line Good Folks. The fabric is intended to spruce up our drab patio.

Here is a glimpse of our patio as it looks now. We have a cheapy Ikea table and chairs that was really beaten up last summer. I sanded it and applied what I thought was a semi-transparent stain. The employee that mixed the colour at Home Depot made a big mistake with the colour and it turned out terribly. I loathe the colour and to add insult to injury, it is peeling off! So my plan is to make a table cloth and bench cushion from the oilcloth I purchased. The rest of the fabric will be used for outdoor cushions.

I'll show you when it's done.

Thanks for stopping by.
