red and blue
Today's fabric piles waiting to be cut into little rabbit and bear shapes were all red and blue. This wasn't a conscious decision, just the fabrics that jumped out at me as I opened up the cupboards.
Do you have days were a certain palette is particular to you? I do. I love playing with colours. For me it's one of the most exciting parts of putting together a new creation. I have quite a large pile and will arrange and rearrange untilt the colours pop.
I love fabric. I prefer vitage or vintage influenced and scour the op-shops almost daily, often coming away with beauties such as the eiderdown above. Today my heart just about jumped out of my chest when I spied this beautiful piece below sitting in a pile in my fav oppie. I'd be chopping into it now if it didn't smell a wee bit like a granny's cupboard. I love everything about this print. The colours, the texture and imagery.... Just about perfection, except for the odd granny smell.
