A few months ago House Beautiful featured this charming Camilla David Little Lambs pattern as one of their favorite 19 embroidered fabrics. I just love it. Camilla was raised in Washington and is now locally based in Bethesda, MD. A former interior designer, she has turned her attention towards textile design with the goal to modernize the look of freshly-picked flowers with unusual, geometric coordinates. The patterns are joyful and the fabric is either all natural 100% Cotton, 100% Linen or a blend of both. (above photography by Phillip Friedman)

These fabrics are available through trade showrooms; here in DC they can be viewed at J. Lambeth & Company. For the full collection, go here.

I also wanted to pass on some news from a local reader - Sharon Hayden of Fabulous Finds is holding one of her well known Barn Sales this Saturday May 15th from 8 am - 4 pm, 1870 Hunter Mill Road Vienna, VA. It looks like a terrific event and a portion of the sales will be given to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in honor of her friend Lucy, a cancer survivor. Go here to see more of the vintage items that will be available. (If you can't make the Spring barn sale, Sharon also offers her finds via her website between sales) Have a great weekend!
