Despite the unusually cool weather (no complaints here - we're usually baking by now!), my thoughts have turned to summer. I suppose the end of the school year has much to do with this. My kids are done on Monday. Seriously, where did the school year go?
With summer on the brain, I seem to be choosing things that scream summer, or at least I think so. After reading Blair's post about her pillows, I had to buy some Lilly squares. I love love love all things Lilly (too bad I can't afford her!). I'm thinking I'll turn these into a great big tote bag to bring to the beach. So fun!
Before snatching up those fabrics, I already had a bag in the works using Jennifer Paganelli's fabrics, which seem quite Lilly-esque to me. Because I move about as slow as a turtle, the bag has been cut out and waiting for at least 2 weeks now. When my energy level and my free time coincide, I'm going to sew that baby up, promise!
And lastly, I came across this tea towel at Tuesday Morning the other day and just had to have it. I had no idea that Vera prints were being reprinted, but then I'm usually only on the lookout for her vintage linens at the thrift store. It's a little scratchy, but I think the blues & greens look fabulous in my kitchen. Maybe after a washing or two it'll soften up, I hope. With my luck the whole design will wash off (fingers crossed that doesn't happen)!
So there you have it, a little taste of summer textile style. Now if only I had a frozen drink in my hand and some sand between my toes....
