Spring In the Dining Room

I see that you are back. Thank you for returning. As promised I told you I would share my dining room with you. If you'll remember way back at the beginning of the year I decided to reorganize and go with function. For the most part it has stayed the same. I know how can you improve MY dining room. LOL. Well, since I ummm acquired some more fabric I had to move things around a little. I should not be saying this, but my favorite quilt shop was flooded on Monday but that is another story. My friend Stacie told me they are selling their fabric at a discount. So what does that mean? Wellllll, I uh might need to go. LOL. Then I'll surely need to really reorganize. OK dream time is over back to my dining room.

So let's revisit the dining room... I can't get a good pic looking into the dining room until tonight because there is too much sun coming in the window. I will post it tonight around 8 hopefully.

UPDATE: I started this post this morning and decided since it was a beautiful day Steve and I went to Amish Country. AND yes I stopped at a fabric outlet...AND yes I bought fabric... AND it was CHEAP!!!! hehehehehe I'm so excited because I bought some awesome fabric to make things for you my faithful customers. Then I bought a Judy Condon book that I didn't have. Then of course we had to make a loop up to my favorite quilt shop that I mentioned above. There flood loss was my gain!!!! $4.00 a yard!!!!! woohoo normally double that a yard or more. I bought some dark browns for the pink and brown quilt I want to make. Speaking of quilt... I will be starting my tutorial on the disappearing 9 patch this weekend. So keep an eye out.

Thanks again for coming back to the homestead. Hope you enjoyed your tour so far. P.S. the living room is next... I'll let you know when I make progress on that. LOL

Hi Mary, I love how your made your dining room real personal. So many times it is a room we seldom use, so it gets ignored. I like the way you used your stacks of fabric on the shelves, I was wondering what to do with the ever increasing fabric I am acquiring. You got a great deal on that fabric also. I am need of another trip to the fabric shop, in need of civil war era fabric they don't sell here. Thanks for a peek into your dining room, gets me thinking what I can do in mine. Vicky

Your dining room is always amazing. Love it. More fabric Huh. I have a small collection & hate to pass up a sale myself. Would you happen to recall where you got the pattern for the stitchery on top of the wood bowl in your cupboard. I reall like it. I have never x stitched & would like to try it. I have admired your blanket crane since you showed it. My son & I are building one for my bedroom. I will be looking for your quilt soon. Blessings! Lara
