Well, choosing fabrics for my project was as for as it went last night. I was exhausted. Today at the office I was faced with the constant battle of not wanting to be there. But the weekend is here now and I intend to make the most of it.
Here are my fabric choices for the stitchery project.
The green set is my favorite.
Take a closer look at the crème fabric.
It is flower names scrolled throughout the fabric. I’m completely in love with this piece. It was a fat quarter piece from a store closing in Green Bay. I wouldn’t call it beautiful, but there is just something about it that speaks to me.

We’re headed shopping in Marquette tomorrow. The weather has temps at 5 degrees max and 35 below for the wind chills. So we might as well shop until this artic front moves away.

Gratitudes
Homemade burgers for supper
old movies
My rusty old mailbox….who wants a new one?!?!?!

Oh I totally love the fabric with words on it! If I came across it, I'd have to buy at least a yard. You can do so many things with it...use it for a background for some altered art, or decoupage a slice onto something...or better yet, make some napkins and embellish them. Oh I'm going to have to keep my eye out for something similar! :)

I like the fabrics you have chosen for the Christmas Wish quilt. The backgrounds are both lovely.

I agree that the green just sets it off nicely!

I am very much attracted to fabric that has words printed on it. Especially those that are background type fabrics. Nice find.

I vote for the green too - and the flower name fabric is lovely. Completely empathise with your feelings about work - but hey, it's the weekend!

I love the red, but either would compliment the project. Ohh the word fabric is perfect though.

I love that fabric with the words all over it! I think that it is the perfect background fabric.

Thanks for sharing!
