Update and Warning!

Remember this?

Well, I feel obligated to tell you, my fellow readers, that this picture of Cadence yellow fabric is NOT what it really looks like, in real life! No sir, not at all. I waited over a week to get these yards in. Every day I kept waiting to hear brown's truck coming down the street, and finally, FINALLY, when it did, I tore open that package like a kid on Christmas morning. And to my dismay, oh the horrors! When it says "corn yellow on linen" what it really means is school bus on brown. Yu-cky! I will not be using this anymore. No mas. I did, however, really like Best Friends. Now that is true to it's image. So, now I am scrambling to find another fabric to coordinate with BF's. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

I finished up the painting today. I say "finished up", what I really mean is I painted the walls in like 2.5 hours flat. Baby was sleeping and Mama had to get her stuff done!!

Oh that's so sad that it looked like it did on the web. I hate when that happens.

I am happy to hear that the best friends fabric was good.

I'm going to be the search for a new yellow fabric for you.

I just found your blog, and I love it!!

Sorry you had such a bad turn out with the fabric you ordered. I know that this is more a pure white background (I think) but have you checked out the Calico Corners one that looks just like that:

I cant wait to read through the rest of your blog, I love it so far!!
