Yes, I watch Project Runway. Even though my sewing skills are more A line elastic waist skirts than haute couture. I get lots of big ideas (although, as you can imagine, not all of them come to fruition.)

One of my favorite pick me ups is to head to Field’s Fabrics on my lunch hour. It’s a locally owned chain and I get so many great ideas! It’s fun to dream even if I don’t end up getting anything. Yesterday’s goal was to find some ideas for window treatments.

Unfortunately DH didn’t like any of these fabric options (other than the burlap), so it’s back to the drawing board fabric store. Darn. :-)
