Fabric Karma

Last week I mentioned here that I was thinking of making this stitchery into a quilted wall-hanging with a piano-style border. Well, not a day later I was on Pat Sloan’s website and saw her new fabric line called "Arabella". I realized the colors were perfect for highlighting the poem, so I ordered her fat quarter bundle of the entire line.


Don’t you just love the rich colors and fantastic designs? I think Pat really struck gold with this fabric line and I’m so happy to have it!

We’re having the broker’s open house tomorrow and an open house for the public on Saturday. Lots of flyers have been removed from the box, and we’ve seen people driving by slowly to look, but there haven’t been any official showings as yet. Got to keep those positive thoughts flowing!

Those fabrics are yummy! Can't wait to see your finished wall hanging. Re: house....remember that it only takes 1 person and your first offer is usually the best one. Gee, you'd think I was a realtor with that sage advice. LOL

Wishing you a speedy sale. I know you feel like you're on display with a For Sale sign out front.

Perfect fabrics!

Good luck on your Open House.

Those colors are luscious. For some reason, I think "fall" when I see them.

This I've got to see, the fabrics are wonderful and I just love the print, how cute!

Good luck with the open house! Don't forget to have something with cinnamon in the oven, or bake bread :)

The colors of the fabric are perfect!

Leave all the blinds/curtains open and all the lights on! A nice natural yummy smell would be good too. I wish you well!

Gorgeous fabrics that will look smashing with your stitchery project!

Living in a glass bubble while your house is on the market is no fun at all. Been there, done that. Good luck with both open houses. Bake something yummy so your house has that "wanta live here" feeling.

I do love those colors that you chose to go along with your poem. Will be a joy to sew.

Best wishes for that open house!
