Then when I should have been finishing up my Christmas shopping, I passed by Calico Corners. What could it hurt to stop in for a few minutes. Well I walked in I was greeted by a salesperson telling me that Calico Corners was having it's twelve days of Christmas sale. On this particular day, all of the fabrics in the store were 25% off. However, this sale was only good for this one day...the fabrics must be purchased by the end of the business day. 25% off - Ok...now that would require a little longer look. At this point I have a good idea as to the direction I want to take the bedding in my ten year old daughter's room. I want that Serena and Lily look...however, it needs to be in the right colors. I've been in love with this fabric from Serena and Lily, but there is enough pink in my daughter's room right now...I have been really wanting to find a similar fabric in a blue/green or aqua.

here. I wanted to have a fabric that related to the stenciled wall. This fabric would certainly do the trick.
While I was at Calico Corners I also saw a fabric I have been lusting over for a while now.

In case I wasn't off course enough from Christmas shopping, I next came across this fabric. Where would this fit into my daughter's room you ask. Well that's the problem...
So I borrowed all three samples. When I got them home and tried them out, they all turned out to be perfect (when does that ever happen?). So I called up my favorite sales person Michelle (I am probably on her list of favorites as well as we both share a love of fabrics...although I may border on being a fabricaholic) and ordered up six yards of the Selby damask, one yard of Thomas Paul's Aviary pattern and two yards of the charcoal damask. I can't wait for them to come so that the sewing can begin. This will bring me one giant step closer to finishing my daughter's room.
