I know, it has been a long time. So much happening. I finally got approval to be a part of the coop building in Brooklyn. With all this talk of coops, you might be wondering how that is different from a condo. Basically, when you purchase a condo, you OWN that apartment. With a coop, you are actually only buying a SHARE of the building, and all the apartment dwellers in a coop building are shareholders. Like a big, disorganized (from what I can tell from how long it took to be approved) corporation. Yikes! Sounds serious! So, in another week or so, I will be "closing", meaning I will be an official shareholder and will live in a certain percentage of the building (my chosen apartment). Weird, I know. Complicated. Move-in date has been tentatively set for January 14th. Why so long? Well, there needs to be a certain amount of work (basically refreshing) done before I can move in. I have a moderate budget set up to make "my percentage" a home! Get ready for some home renovation posts in the near future....
Meanwhile, I found this fabulous source for beautiful and very reasonably priced fabric on etsy.com! It's the Fabric Treasury brought to you by Anne George. Rather than try to describe, I will send you to her "About" page here.
This was the first to catch my eye. Beautiful unbleached natural fabric with a woven pattern of small dotted circles. This would be really fun to embellish with stamps or embroidery. I would be doing this right now if I was not in the middle of a life-changing event! Can't wait to settle down and get back to work.....
This is another unbleached natural that would lend itself well to a hand-printed repeat.
Don't feel like printing your own fabric? Look at Anne's beautiful prints!
Once I get back to my "real life", I want to at least buy a bundle of fat quarters. Anne has several choices, but the flax/linen (above) are my favorite. Beautiful colors!
I could have kept this source a secret but it's too good not to share. Please, save some for me!
