Fabric Brainstorm

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend! Our plans were canceled because of stormy weather, so we've had a very relaxing weekend. As is typical of my free time, I have been completely uninspired on new things to make.

I was however very excited to receive this in the mail...


It is part of Mary Ann's Fabric Challenge. I sent her a yard of this black and grey houndstooth. I've had it for years and love it, but could never think of anything to do with it. So, I shipped it off to Mary Ann and a very short time later received an amazing scarf. The picture does not do it justice. It is lined with a gorgeous dark red fabric with some very neat trim details. Also included were some really cool notecards. I never would have thought of just sewing some peices to paper, but it looks really neat. AND, some really cute fish kitty toys.

In return she has sent me this fabric...


So, I have been brainstorming trying to decide what to make out of it. I've got a couple ideas rolling around in my head, but nothing definite just yet. Any ideas out there? I'll keep working on it. I'm thinking something in "high fashion lumberjack" which of course is very chic around here!

I have no idea what you could use that fabric for. But I can't wait to see what you come up with. I loved your "high fashion lumberjack" phrase. You are too funny.

Wow! Such a cool package from Maryann. I think the plaid she sent you would make a great handbag:):) Also - could you email me your address? I lost it!! raeshadrz at yahoo dot com
