Fabric purchases

Well, nothing at all ended up happening at the block last week, so hopefully it will be full steam ahead there this week.  The Site Supervisor did say he hoped to have the slab down by the end of the week.  (Revised from today, due to the recent rain).  That would mean that there should be action there just about every day this week, and I'll have some pics to share with you!

In the meantime, I recently discovered Fabric Traders, thanks to The Distressed Mother!  I finally managed a purchase today!!!

This one is to re-cover the lamp shades for the Formal Lounge room.

This one is to re-cover the lamp shade in our big girl's room.

I'll keep you posted on my progress with this project. And, I will share the concept board for the big girl's room with you later in the week.

Has anyone had any progress on their builds during the last week or so???

Have a great week!


  1. I love that blue and white chevron, M - it will make for a stunning new lamp shade!

  2. We painted some internal doors, inside jobs only here because of the rain too. How frustrating to finally start your project and be delayed by the weather. Getting 'out of the ground' is always the slowest of jobs! I love the two fabrics. There was quite a bit of chevron used in lamps and soft furnishings at the Decoration and Design Fair last week. I think it's going to be very popular here, like in the US.
