Move Over Dragon, There's a Peacock in Town

Well Schumacher has done it again with their new fabric sensation Shanghai Peacock.  It might just be the end of an era for last year's "must have" Chiang Mai Dragon fabric that stole our fabric loving hearts.
Cerise - I predict this to be the "go to" colourway



Here's last year's beauty queen.  Enter the Dragon...

Not completely dissimilar right?  At first I thought "what's the big deal?  It's the same thing as their dragon". But that's actually brilliant.  We're not sick of the dragon but they are required to come out with something new so that all of us fabric obsessed can get a new fix.   

Last year I made a pillow using Chiang Mai Dragon and I still love it. 

According to the Chinese Zodiac calender it's the Year of the Dragon but my prediction is that it's about to become the Year of the Peacock.


Now that summer is long gone, it's time to snuggle up under a blanket and get back to reading.  Heather at Interior Groupie and I are excited to bring the next selection for Bloggers Book Club.  Drumroll please.  We will be reading Long Way Down by Nick Hornsby.  We'll be reviewing it on December 17 so you've got plenty of time to get reading.  So go on, get reading.

How to Score a Deal on Luxury Fabrics

If you're a regular reader you already know this but if you're new I"ll let you in on a little secret.  I'm a fabricaholic and will often stay up late cruising the internet for fabric inspiration. There is usually a bit of fantasizing over the fabrics that are way out of my financial reach and dream about how I would cover my entire house in them.  

Recently I discovered a way to get some of those fabrics for myself without actually paying the full pop for them.  BIG SECRET REVEAL - I did a search for Schumacher remnants and was immediately transported to an Etsy seller who was looking to part with an entire box of remnants for the very manageable price of $75 plus shipping.  

It took a while for the box to make it's way from Utah to British Columbia but it only took 1 second for me to have the box open when it arrived.  Here's a peek at what I got.
 Celerie Kemble Betwixt for Schumacher - This one came in 5 colours and there is more yardage of this than any other.  I see many Betwixt pillows in my future.

I have no idea where this fabric originates from so if anyone knows, share with me please.

Studio Bon Scallops for Schumacher
Quadrille Aga Reverse 
David Hicks La Florentina for Lee Jofa
Hable Construction Bead

Martyn Lawrence-Bullard Adras Ikat

There are bunches other remnants that are too small to make into pillows but I'm sure I"ll find something great to do with them.

So who says you can't afford to have luxury fabrics?
