Flash Back Photo Album: 2013 Country Living Ohio

I'm going to be catching up on the blog this wee. Everyday I'm going to post a photo album that I should have posted ages ago! A lot has happened in the last 12 months that I haven't blogged about properly.

First up! Country Living Fair in Columbus Ohio 2013. This was by far the best set up to date, I hope you enjoy it! I'll be at this show again in September and I hope to see you there too. The dates are Sept. 12, 13, 14, 2014. Click on over to buy up your tickets. I suggest you get the Early Bird tickets, this way you get great deals and first pick of all the goodies! Best of all, no crowds!

You know I'm doing this one first because we are starting to prep for it, right? This show is our best show of the year. It' takes a lot of sewing to get there. : )

This is my lovely spot under the will tree!

This is our cutting table, yes, we cut fabric to order at the show! Cool, right?

I spy oilcloth and laminated cotton at Finding Home!

A while back I invited the Lynn, from Finding Home to be a part of my At Home with Modern June blog tour. I asked her to show her readers how to use the covered seat cushion project that is in the book. I also sent her a box full of black and white oilcloth and laminated cotton to play with.
Lynn, used our great Black Picnic Check oilcloth to recover her kitchen chairs. This fabric has been a big hit. We started carrying it thanks to fellow blogger, The Painted Home, when she had picked it out for her Crafty Camper seat cushions.
The chairs are lovely, aren't they?
Next, she made simple oilcloth placemats by cutting a single layer of oilcloth into squares. She topped it all off with a laminated cotton runner, again, just a simple cut piece of fabric. Both of these fabrics are great, they don't fray so you don't have do any fussy sewing -- if you care not.
Then she got fancy! Lynn created a no-sew silverware sleeve with black polka dot oilcloth and washi tape. Next she topped it off with a chalk cloth tag, that she made with a punch that she just happened to have. A very crafty gal!
See her blog, Fining Home, to see how she made the template.

I hope you enjoyed this peek into Lynn's lovely home! See her blog Finding Home for so much more!

New Laminated Canvas!

Orchid Arrow!

I am so excited to carry Jessica Jone's wonderful laminated canvas! It's a high quality canvas that is laminated on the face of the fabric. The modern design is very exciting for us, there's not a lot of this out there in easy to care for laminates.

Navy Arrow!

It's pretty thick stuff, but I still think it'll make a great tablecloth! It's thick enough to make terrific placemats!! I can't wait to play with this, it just arrived last night and I'm having a hard time doing my scheduled work! ; )

Oslo Dutch Tulip!
