fabric samples and funny friday

I ordered samples of all of these fabrics yesterday:

Lots of projects are in my head, including curtains, pillows, and maybe even attempting to sew a slipcover for a chair and ottoman this summer.
Any thoughts on these fabrics?

Now, for the funnies:
I took this photo on my last trip to Greenville, SC. I was tired and grumpy from unsuccessful househunting and being badgered by Realtors, so I decided to stop by Starbuck's for a bottle of water and some chocolate covered espresso beans. I sat outside in the sun and noticed this on the table where I was sitting:

Speaking of smoking, did you hear that a study has shown that smoking lowers the risk of Parkinson's disease? Of course, they weren't saying people should smoke, but they do hope to discover why cigarettes lower the PD risk and put that information to beneficial use. Article here.

Be back Tuesday with a report on the wedding shower!


  1. Love all the fabric. Do I see a yummie quilt coming from all of these. Now, wouldn't that be fun.

    Never know that about the smoking thing and Parkinson's. But, that is an interesting pictures. Amazing the things we see through our lenes.

    Enjoying a rainy day for crocheting here in Florida.

  2. Love the tones of the fabrics you've chosen. They're very cool and calming. I think 1, 2, and 4 might make a good grouping (curtains, chair cover, and throw pillows???)

    I'm glad that you thought to take that photo. A picture truly IS worth a thousand words
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Oooh, a quilt from those would be FABuLoUS!I will have to consider making my first quilt...

    4Bushel, I love the ones you grouped together! That might just have to happen...

  4. One, three and five! If I have to choose, cause I love all of them. Where are you ordering from? Happy weekend!

  5. Such pretty fabrics! So neutral/versatile. That IS a funny pic :) Interesting re: the smoking/parkinson's risk link!

  6. I loved all the fabrics ! But my favorites are the 4th and 5th ones ;)

    Have a wonderful weekend !!!
