FINALLY SOME INSPIRATION !

It's a great day when I get a favorite catalog or magazine in the mail.  Shallow?  Well maybe, but it's the little things !  So I have really been itching to do something creative in the area of sewing, but nothing has grabbed me besides the cute Heather Bailey, turtle pattern !  Adorable ! (also a few posts down),  I am trying to get down to crafty planet, to see if they now carry the cute elephant pattern, so turtle can have a friend :)
Anyway, today my Cath Kidston , catalog/magazine came  !!!!!  And I knew as soon as I pulled of the plastic covering that I was going to have a great rest of the day ! 
For some reason, the colors and patterns she uses just speak to me.  There isn't one thing in the whole mag that I don't love and want !
So on my quest to get motivated to do some serious creative sewing, there is the cutest upholstered chair in one of the pics.
I have been wanting to recover a big overstuffed chair that we "acquired" a few years ago.  And I also, am on the look for a fun French Provincial, or wing type chair to recover in a fun funky floral, to be a signature piece for the up coming Junk Bonanza sale in September , that I am debuting at !
So, there you have it, little things !  I have my project in mind.............now to find that piece I need to work on!   It's the thrill of the hunt !  Enjoy these pics and happy day !

I seriously need my laundry room to look like this too !

We love Cath Kidston!! We also feel that her colors and designs speak to us. If only she had stores in the U.S.!!

Have a great weekend.
