Fabric Friday - It's been a while...

17 comments
I'm missing my sewing machine lately so I'm dreaming of working on projects that I can't fit into my August schedule right now.  We have my daughter and son-in-law visiting from Oklahoma, another daughter and boyfriend here form California,  a big party this weekend with extended family and friends, followed by my 7th daughter Laurie, entering the LDS Missionary Training Center on Wednesday next week. Whew.
Fabric and sewing make me happy and calm frazzled nerves.  So enjoy this filler post with beautiful vintage fabric to sooth and make you smile.  Above, the little girl's face is a litte crazy (those eyes), but the dress is amazing.
I'm always drawn to PA Dutch type fabric.  Always.  So it is fun to have a few in my stash to dream of using.
Vintage kitchen fabric is a joy to behold.  Love the hot pad and kettle but all the graphics are adorable.
This kitchen print really reminds me of my childhood home on Church Street in Reading, Pennsylvania.  
I love this fabric.  It is a great color, it mixes kitchen motifs with PA Dutch.  So cute.
This red and white is kind of like Christmas meets PA Dutch.  The snowflakes are like hex signs.
This last print is my absolute favorite.  Strawberries are my favorite thing and then mixed with kitchen and garden images makes it just about perfect.

It is going to be a fun few days for me.  I'll be back in a while when we've rested and recoup'ed.

Lovely selection Nanette, especially the swirly pink skited girl and the yellow kitchen print. I always feel a little time ruminating over fabric is time well spent

You are right, that dress IS amazing! At first glance, I thought it was an applique, and I actually exclaimed "Wow!" I would also choose the last print as my favorite, not only for the graphics but that color combination makes me so happy. Enjoy your time with your family! :)
