Could you just step in?

Would you mind? You over there - the one with the great fashion sense? Could you just step inside my head for a moment? What I need is a personal fabric shopper. I see designs I love. I see patterns I adore. I see color combinations that make me swoon. But when it's my turn to pick fabrics for a project, I fall flat. I end up with fabrics I'm sick of in a few months, and I never end up with that feeling of "YES! I LOVE IT!!"

  5. I have a friend, also fellow blogger, and she puts samples of fabrics and wall paper and anything else on her blog for people to vote on. It's fun to see what she likes and what everyone picks.
