Oooo La La

A friend took me to a new fabric store yesterday, Portsmouth Fabric Company in Portsmouth, NH.  I will be making two scarves with the top two pieces of rayon batik, I promise I will share photos when I get them done!  The two bundles were just too pretty to leave at the store, they are both cotton, the batiks, will be for my stash and the other, the roll, will be a gift!

I finally shortened the curtains that I found at a yard sale a while back, they make my sewing room cozy for the winter.......but it is also a little darker than having just valences!  As you can see out the window there is no snow!

This is the next project that I will be stitching, I have traced the picture onto the fabric, now I can begin stitching. 
 Instead of blue.......... are the accent fabrics and the floss that I will use

Next post I will have a photo of the flannel quilt that I made for my husband.

Have a wonderful day!
