Green, Red, Pink and Cream
Man, I love fabric. And over the last couple of weekends I've managed to acquire a bit more. If you look closely you'll fine a jewel box of treasures, including a couple of cuts from Heather Bailey's line FreshCut*, an adorable Swiss dot**, an awesome retro Building Blocks by American Jane*** (more on that in a second) and my favorite Aunt Grace****, which I just had to buy another piece of.
You'd think with the amount of fabric I buy that I might actually make something. Patience, dear readers, patience. Remember that American Jane fabric I mentioned (see above)? Well, I have plans. Big plans. Plans involving a pattern for you all to love and enjoy. I will not say more, no matter how you beg. Truly. But check back in a couple of weeks and you'll see. Maybe even the entire pile of fabric will be converted into something actually functional. Or pretty. It could happen.
Speaking of "pile," I thought I'd be all clever and take the pictures outside today, since we had a whole 15 minutes of sunshine. Unfortunately it was a little more awkward than I had had in mind. Nevermind the bright sunlight made it impossible to see what I was shooting (my little silver Nikon doesn't have a viewfinder), but I had to keep one eye out to make sure I didn't step in any of the lovely "garden art"***** left by our dog Sophie. And I didn't step in it. Nope, dear readers, I knelt in it instead. Oh yeah.
I'll spare you the details.
Return your attention to the fabric. Lovely fabric. Isn't it all just crying out to be sewn? Or at least loved?
