Love at First Sight

Calico Corners is my favorite fabric store.  They are always adding new fabrics which keeps me coming into their store.  While browsing their website a week or so ago I came across these beautiful fabrics:

I especially loved this fabric:

Then when I saw it in this room, I just had to go and check it out in person:

When I got to Calico Corners and saw the fabric in person it was love at first sight.  I knew instantly that it would be perfect for drapes in my guest bedroom.  The fact that they were having a 20% off sale only made the decision that much easier.  So I ordered it on the spot.
The fabric arrived yesterday and I started working on the drapes last night.  I hope to finish them in the next day or two.  I can't wait to share them with you along with a full tutorial.  I'm excited!

Does anyone else fall in love at first sight with fabrics?  I think I may need a support group. Lol

Oh, Judy! I LOVE that fabric. I am just like you. I walk into a fabric store and time stands still. We don't live anywhere near a Calico Corners, or I'd be in serious trouble! I can't wait to see your curtains!

I love the inspirational room too; aqua/turquoise is really big right now--I love it with neutrals and browns--I'm starting to like a little orange mixed in too. Can't wait to see your fabrics!

The closest Calico Corners is an hour away but every time I go in there I get heart palpitations just thinking about all of the possibilities! LOL! That fabric is just gorgeous Judy and I can see why you had to have some for your guest bedroom. Can't wait to see the finished product and know it will be beautiful! :-)

I absolutely fall in love with fabrics at first sight so much so that about 20 years ago I saw a chair covered in a fabric I loved and proceeded to cover 2 loveseats with the same fabric (see link below). Still like the fabric, still have the loveseats, I might be ready for a change though. Jo @ Let's Face the Music

They are going to be fabulous Judy. Love that fabric and the color too.

Hi Judy, at least you have a purpose for your fabric. I have a cupboard full of ones I've "just had to have" and m mother has a wardrobe full... That hopefully I'll inherit one day! Looking forward to seeing the curtains.
Cheers Fiona

At least you know how to SEW! I look at/fondle/smell and buy fabric and I can't even sew!
