One of the reasons we went to Thompson was to get out of the house while new linoleum was being put into the kitchen-living room area of our house. When we got home it looked like this.
I am quite happy with it. It is a lot darker than what we have had for the last twenty years but it certainly doesn't show dust the way the old one did. Also, we have so many windows that our house has lots and lots of light so a bit darker is not a problem.
I bought some fabric at a quilt store in Plumas and more in Thompson. Then when I got home I found a huge fabric sale going on and this is the result of all three shopping sessions. I may go back to the sale because quilting fabric is on at $3.95/meter and that's hard to beat. I was not crazy about most of the colors and designs but there are a couple more I might like. They also had unbleached cotton very cheap but I'm not sure if it's a fine enough weave that I want to buy it for dyeing. I may get a few yards to try it out and buy more if it works well.
