One of the projects not on my list is to make a little moss terrarium in a big jar I got at Ikea. I think that will be my weekend project this Saturday. Terrariums satisfy my love of miniatures and glass jars and moss all at once. I especially love the ones above with the little mushrooms and tiny houses. I think I will need to put something like that in my terrarium too. It also means that I will be going on a little hike to collect some local moss, that should be fun! This is the best time of year to head up the trail just up the road from our house.
I'm also starting to scheme and plan the curtains-over-the-bookcases project. I really love the Good Folks fabric line from Anna Maria Horner, and I'm seriously considering using a combination of these two pretty patterns:
I really love a lot of the new fabric designers, but when faced with actually buying their fabric I sort of freeze up. I have several problems. Number one: I just can't decide which I like best in any given group. What if I buy one print and then I get it home and realize that I actually really like a different one or a different colorway better. Number two: I don't feel like I can really make things for my shop out of them, because they are so well known that whatever design I come up with will never be quite worthy enough, and the item will only be purchased because of the fabric designer. Does that make sense? Like my design will be overshadowed by the fabulous-ness of the fabric. Or if I were to make a quilt all out of one line of fabric, it's not really very original of me. I'm just babbling, I don't know if I'm even making any sense. Anyway, what do you think of the above fabric choices? The curtains would be mostly the floral, with a deep hem of the geometric fabric at the bottom (like 18" or so). Or maybe I should go with a different fabric from that line...see how hard it is to commit!?
