Hello friends! Just a quick post to share with you some photos of my recent fabric finds. Ok...I need more fabric like I need a third pinky finger. Hey....if I had a third pinky finger I could wear that other ring that is too small for my ring finger! Wow...I'm good, did you see how I rationalized and justified my new purchases??? It all makes perfect sense now.
While I was in California, I noticed quite a few animal prints. Handbags and luggage, it was very popular. I never really looked for animal prints when I shopped for fabric before now. For some reason I am very attracted to these patterns..especially the zebra. I really love the bold black and white and the cool jagged stripe. Very timeless. Oooooo..I feel a little tingle in my chest..could that be my fabric taste maturing??
When I returned from Ca. I stopped by my wonderful local quilt shop www.kellyannsquilting.com/ and intended only to say hello to Kelly Ann. Well if any of you know Kelly Ann, you are probably thinking what a naive fool I must be. Kelly Ann is the Optimus Prime of the fabric sales world. I never get out of her shop without making a purchase. I walk in to be socially correct and leave financially defeated. She gets me every time!!!! Just between you and me..I do think she is a pretty cool lady with a great shop. I never hold a grudge ;-) Aren't these wintry pink holiday fabrics beautiful?
While at Kelly Ann's I spotted this fabulous Halloween panel and matching fabric. I love Halloween, but very often all I find is patterns of black and orange ..which is great except I lean more towards more muted tones. I think that is why I was drawn to this fabric, I love the rust, beige and chocolate brown with the cool stenciled pumpkins. I think this would be perfect as the center piece in a holiday apron. Can you think of another use?
Finally, I neglected to include this photo in my California post last week. You know you are a fabric junkie when you are in California and shopping in places like Rodeo Drive, Huntington Beach and the Rose Bowl Fleamarket and all you bring home is 4 yards of fabric and a handsewn linen apron! My poor hubby just shakes his head in disbelief...it's a wonder his head hasn't just dropped off, it is in such a constant state of shaking. He is like one of those bobble dolls on your dashboard. God...I love that man!!!! That's it for now...until next post, be kind and stay creative.
