Buffalo Checks and Linen for LaFortune Linens!

I love my Etsy shop, and have decided to add different options when it comes to the fabric I offer.
 Linen has always been a favorite.
It's organic.
It drapes beautifully.
Can be washed and dried...actually, it gets softer the more you wash it.
Is very strong and long lasting if you treat it properly.
And...it's just gorgeous.
So here are a few items I now offer, with more to come.
Linen Café Curtain with a Scalloped top...I love these!
Perfect in a kitchen...would give privacy over a Bath Tub with a window...
a great addition to bedroom windows too!
Another Linen item I love are Pillowcases.
Sleeping on Linen can't be beat.
Especially when you've laundered them and hang them out in the Sunshine!
I don't think many people use clotheslines anymore,
but it's my favorite way to dry laundry...
even towels :)
Here's a new fabric source for my shop.
Beautiful, high quality fabrics.
Classic patterns.
Traditional that's been updated.
They also have wonderful Buffalo Checks available.
This one is Lyme...3 1/4" repeat
Sooo many colors to choose from...
Black & Natural

Rose & White
Then there's Metro Check...
more to love :)
These Buffalo checks have a repeat of 6 3/4".
A really nice large pattern...with quite a few colors to choose from too!
All 100 % cotton, and the pattern is woven, not printed.
These are going to be so much fun to work with!

Very Late Christmas Update...

Yes...this post is very late...but better late than never...right ?!?
Christmas morning...
Santa was very busy and delivered all the presents to Memere and Pepere's house.
We had all 3 girls,
2 son in laws,
5 Grand Daughters,
2 of their dogs...
am I missing anything?
Oh, Adam wasn't able to be here...
maybe next Christmas?
Leaving all those presents was a lot of hard work,
looks like he enjoyed his milk and cookies...
and the carrots were gone too!
Caroline put that all out Christmas Eve :)
This was the best of several attempts to get a picture of all 5 girls in the dresses I made them.
I also made them a few other Christmas gifts
There were a few other things that got their attention too...
Christmas Breakfast.
and more hugs!
What a day!

It was wonderful...all of it :)
