I think the best part of any sewing project is picking out the fabric.
A couple days ago I purchased two vintage caned chairs, with the intention of refurbishing them (inspiration here). They'll eventually go into the den in our cabin, which has gray walls, off-white carpeting, and a taupe chaise (the ikat fabric pictured above is for an accent pillow for the chaise). I decided to cover one chair in the cross-section fabric, and the other in the zig-zag. The turquoise fabric will become a floor pillow or upholstery for a footstool.
Waverly's modern essential fabric in luminary/indigo (above right) may soon be covering lumbar pillows on the two chairs I just slip-covered (fabric on the left) - although I may end up using a simple-solid fabric if the pattern/color mix looks too crazy in person.
I also have fabric I want to purchase for two twin headboards, trim on curtain panels, and a billion accent pillows. I really have no idea how I'm going to finish all these projects...
