quick hello

I hoped to have some real finished sewing to show you today, but I'm not quite there yet.

The Great Coat Sewalong is well established now, and what's been eating 60% of my time lately is having to take a back seat while I sew some for myself and then go see family.

Today is shaping up to be a long one. This morning I have my recheck with the Spine and Brain specialist. He gave me the ok to start working out again 2 or 3 weeks ago, and it feels good to be moving again.
And I've got to run back to the home-dec fabric store here - The Fabric Co - great resource for stuff you see outside the Calico Corners type stores. Anyway, I need to find a navy/white ticking or other "non-floral" fabric to make a shower curtain out of to take with me to TC this coming weekend. Has anyone seen Navy Blue for home dec in the last decade? Anywhere? Wish me luck.

I'll update this later with pics of fun and fancy red kitchen items, also destined for the wedding shower.

You might have a better chance of locating a sheet in the correct colors....As long as you plan to use a plastic liner, that might work out okay.

For what it's worth, I know that Calico Corners has made a special effort to find and stock navy blue fabrics--and you're right, they've not been driving the color palette for quite some time, but are always classic, like a blue blazer. There are prints, wovens and jacquards--many with gold or burgundy accents.

Calico Corners also sells navy ticking stripes.
Best,
Jan

Nothing is so crisp and clean looking as Navy and White. Good luck!
