Friday's Favorite Fabric Finds

Happy Friday, Friends!  It's official- I will be using every Friday to post my latest and greatest vintage fabric finds.  Not only do I like the way Friday, finds, favorite and fabric all start with the same letter, but I also thrive on routine and know I'm not alone.  (*winks at Victoria)

Beautifully detailed and well saturated turquoise and green flowers on aqua

Blue and avocado green floral

Yes, it's true: nautical flower power!!

There are quite a few other fabrics on the way... without summer camp for Sophie this week, I've gotten a little behind (more than usual) in washing, photographing and listing.  Be sure to check the *newly listed* section of sosovintage when you visit to be sure you catch all of the new arrivals :)

In exciting happy news, I am over halfway done with the major big dig project in the downstairs room!  After taking two trunkfuls of *stuff* to the Purple Heart donation center, and several large trash bags to the curb, I am now at the point of sorting and storing the remaining items.  This is no small task, but I find that working on a couple of bins per evening while I keep some mindless TV on for company makes a dent after awhile.  My big reward after I finish this part is that my husband is going to install a sturdy closet organization system.  I will finally have a place to hang all of the gorgeous vintage fabrics that are waiting for new homes.  I have a feeling I'll often be found sitting down there just staring lovingly into that space.  You understand, don't you?

Here's hoping you have a wonderful weekend on tap!  Any fun plans?  Please share!

Oooo, I love the alliteration, too! It sounds so snappy and happy. :-)

All of those fabrics are beautiful, the first one especially.

I definitely know the feeling of accomplishment with getting craft items organized. I got so organized in cleaning up my origami and jewelry making supplies that I boxed up every bit of jewelry making supplies and gave them to a friend. Huzzah! Now I have a bookcase that holds all of my origami supplies and items. I feel tremendously better! And the place looks better, too. :-)

I actually have plans for this weekend, and I'm really excited about them. Several friends that I just graduated with are visiting this weekend. We are going to a winery for a blues festival, and then tubing. Huzzah!

I love all your F's Jennie :o)
I could do with a bit of routine myself!
I bet you're looking forward to getting that closet system in place..
What a lovely carrot at the end of the journey :o)

Sounds like you could use an extra pair of hands at the moment though!
I really like the nautical flowers fq. It makes me think of France!

I'm catching up on chores this weekend after spending the week waiting outside a hotel! (Sounds a bit dodgy I know, but Gems was doing her 'work experience' there! lol)
Then on Sunday the children have all got a Karate grading..the last phase of their brown belt (the one before black!)
Wish 'em luck lovely Jennie :o)
Take care, and have a great weekend..xxOOxx
