We have had a grey, blah, foggy, smoggy, icy winter in these here parts. Cruddiest winter I can remember. I feel like I've relocated to the Planet Hoth. So I'm looking for any kind of color and sunshine I can get my hands on. Even if it comes in fabric form. (Or should I say especially if it comes in fabric form? wink, wink)Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelet design ever since the first teal piece I bought a couple of years ago. And to know it was being printed in every color of the rainbow?? Dreamy. I got this fat quarter bundle from Westwood Acres. So pretty. And cheerful! I know I'm going to need a few of those colors in bigger pieces of yardage before it's all gone.
Westwood Acres is this fat quarter bundle of Allison Glass's Bike Path print in her Lucky Penny collection. Such pretty colors and a great blender fabric. I'm getting up the courage to actually open the bundle.
One more recent fabric favorite: Stamped by Ellen Luckett Baker for Kokka. I don't know what it is that I love so much about this line - between the bright, primary colors (totally me) and the simple graphic design on the linen fabric - but it just calls my name. I couldn't resist getting some. I think it was Anna's bag that first made me fall in love. I may have to
shamelessly copy pay homage to that bag. Stamped is available from Pink Castle Fabrics, Dry Goods Designs, and Sew Mama Sew.
For as much as I dislike winter - especially this one - there are some perks. My favorite one being the fact that it's great stay-inside-and-sew weather. No yard guilt. I don't want to leave my house at all, so I am sewing up a storm.
