Fancy me some fabric finds...and sabotage by furball

I'm painting my craft room this weekend. I really like the color so far (it needs another coat yet). Kind of a warm yummy brown - like good coffee with too much cream. But guess what we discovered? The door handle doesn't latch properly. Wanna know how we found out? Some mysterious claw marks have appeared in the fresh paint under the window overnight. Hmmmm....

Before I went to bed, I opened the window and closed the door. But Cooper is absolutely obsessed with the great outdoors. So he sniffed him out a possible escape hatch, pushed the door open and jumped his fat tookus up there to scout it out (don't worry, there are screens). Ugh. It should still be done this weekend though. I can't wait to move all my stuff in. The house has been a bit of a disaster area with bits and pieces of my craftiness scattered all over. It'll be so nice to get organized again.

In the mean time, check out some of my most recent fabric scores!

Those are from a little bit ago, and I've already used a couple of them. Do you recognize the yellow flower print in that one? Yup! It's Beavy's tummy. I couldn't wait to use that one when I found it. And the green and white one is Barnum's tummy. And these I found on Thursday:

Don't you love them? Look at that bottom one. Oooooo. :) I can't remember what it's called though. I keep wanting to say tweed - but that's not right, is it?

And they all look/feel very vintage, however, I wasn't sure about the top one until - look what I found!

Ha! Can you imagine fabric being 37 cents a yard? Woooowee! I'd have a field day! I also think it's pretty amazing that this tag has survived this whole time. Neato!
