I was feeling a bit groggy this morning after a night alone caring for our three daughters. (Stephen's gone fishing with friends this weekend.) But I got a nice little jolt of excitement along with my Earl Grey when I stumbled on PataPri. A resident of Chicago by way of Japan, Yuko Uemura has just recently begun selling her own fabric designs in honor of her shop's one-year anniversary. Her fruit, animal, and other nature-inspired designs are silk-screened onto 100% linen and are fresh and simple in colors like aqua, orange, olive, and gold. You can buy these little treasures for projects of your own--Yuko generously allows others to sell items made from her fabrics--or you can purchase her tea towels, accent pillow covers, and tablecloths. Get the yardage while it lasts! According to her blog, these fabrics will only be available for a limited time.
