Today’s Joy Dare Challenge is to name three gifts of fabric. I love going into fabric stores, where I slowly walk up and down the aisles touching each of the pretty rolls. Mary Jo’s Fabrics in Gastonia, NC blows my mind with the over abundance of choices. I have to be very focused if I go in there. The colors and feel of the fabrics makes my heart race with excitement.
304. Sunroom fabric. When we moved into this home 6 years ago, I needed to change the fabric on this chair. I went to my favorite interior fabric store, Martha’s, and found this beauty. This chair is where I do my devotional and journal. I call it my throne. It’s a pretty spot to talk with God.
305. Chickens. When it comes to decorating, I’m not the type to change things up every other week. I find something I like and stick with it. That’s the way it is with these curtains. Ten years ago, I knew I wanted chicken fabric for my kitchen curtains. I knew what it looked like in my mind, then I just had to find it. Find it I did. Why is this fabric a gift? It reminds me that God gave me the gift of being able to sew. I’m proud of what I did.
306. My children’s baby blankets. This is my almost 21 year old’s faded, tattered and torn baby blanket. Before the birth of each of my three children, I made them a baby blanket. These blankets wrapped them up, kept them warm and snuggled my kids as they grew. My daughter loves hers so much that she wanted to take it to college. Oh, how I miss those days of my sweet babies crawling in my lap, wrapped in their blankies to read a book or watch a favorite tv show.
