Gaze upon one area.....
Yet another stack...
Still another corner of the room (and there's more than this!)
I suppose it's easy now to see what a task it is to review each and every book, and more difficult still to decide the few that will make the cut to the smaller space. Oh my.
Much like sorting my trim books, the fabric books drew large raves and/or a quick toss aside. I just couldn't resist documenting some of my favorites....or not!
I began several nights ago by sorting several categories, i.e. favorite linens, best velvet selections, most revered mohairs, and stacked them into separate piles. While reviewing the linens tonight, I came across this new book sent by Lee Jofa. First of all, I love monograms on anything, and this is a generic monogram! Put it on 100% Belgium natural linen, and it's hard to beat! Pillows, valances, custom bedding, even draperies.
As I turned a few pages, I came across this one! Almost like an alphabet primer!
When I spotted it again in a pale robin-egg blue, I knew the camera must come out! I love linen!
Just when I was swooning about the linen alphabet, I came across this linen polka dot! What is it about linen, anyway?!
This cocoa, green,charcoal and chartreuse just made my heart sing!
.....no need to think twice about tossing this one into the discard pile! Flame stitch, ugh.
I had to keep this in the "must have" pile. I have always loved it and never used it yet! Wool hounds tooth in aqua, creme and chartreuse. Say no more!
STOP! Orange and hounds tooth together in this collection! No way could I toss this one.
I'll end on this one. All I can say is,the task became a wee bit less so when my fingers began to run through the fabric options. What can I say, textiles just make me happy. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do. Coming soon......Susan's favorite picks!
I almost left this one out! From one of the Modern Library collections....hot pink and lime green! I hope I find someone bold enough to try this one.
At the very end of the night, I thought I had completed my picks, when I came across this one. I haven't looked through it yet, but I'm pretty sure with a name like "NICKEL/EBONY", it will be a keeper! Come see for yourself.
