Would you believe I'm working on another July goal? Yes, it's true.
Goal #3 - curtains for Walter's bedroom. I went to Fabricana in Richmond. This is a great store for fabric-obsessed shoppers. A huge main floor plus a large mezzanine, all devoted to fabric. I wandered around a bit, but then honed in on the quilting section. This area has a large selection of cotton, and cotton-mixed fabrics with wonderful patterns. I was a little worried about the fabric theme Walter wanted - frogs ... but it wasn't long before I found multiples. Cute ones, serious ones, colourful ones, subtle ones. So many to choose from. I finally settled on a fabric that had a black background with happy, colourful, smiling frogs all around.
The black background should help with the sunlight at bedtime, and the colourful frog pattern is just plain smile-inducing.
Oh, and another fabric caught my eye.
I decided Walter's old yellow curtains will go in the guest bedroom. I'm thinking this fabric will be used in the master bedroom. It has a subtle geometric pattern and several colours to choose from as a basis for other decorating decisions that need to be made ... for instance, wall colours and bed linen.
Tomorrow I hope to measure out the new curtains for Walter's bedroom and start sewing, sewing baby.
