Jane Stickle Wait for Me, and Forsyth Fabrics

Conducted my own Jane Stickle Marathon to catch up after the Christmas festivities:


Sadly, this star doesn't show up well enough. Might have to Do-Over:









Yesterday, I drove to Atlanta's westside warehouse district to visit Forsyth Fabrics. That was only my second visit even though it is heaven to go there. How often do you need decorator fabric, after all? I need to make some slipcovers. Looked at every last fabric that was there, which took awhile, because it is an enormous place, and all of the employees are seasoned professionals and so pleasant to deal with. Got these samples:

but didn't get any of those fabrics. Got a yard of the Pennsylvania Tulips below to make something out of:

Got a plain beige for the loveseat slipcover and the most delectably faded large floral for maybe the chair slipcover, not sure, both at a great price.

Here is one of Rembrandt's early Victorian ancestors:

I bought some of that black & green print from Fabric.com dirt cheap to make outdoor cushions for a loveseat. Love it!

First...no need for a makeover! Not all of the Jane blocks need to be Stars (no pun intended!) Second...love the second fabric from the left! My Mom had her sofa recovered. It was delivered the day before Christmas (snow delays!) and looked wonderful. Now I have the itch to do some reupholstering....

Doesn't Rembrandt look like royalty sitting on that amazing fabric! Great job on all the DJ blocks.
