I don’t know about you, but I’m glad its Friday! Been a looong week here. Willow and I have been fighting a cold and she’s been way cranky. She’s been taking those toddler naps, the sort of naps that wherever her body lands, thats where she’s sleeping. While this gives me a break during the day, it means it’s a bloody battle to get her in bed before midnight. I really need to walk two blocks to the store and get food so we can have something besides popcorn. But its raining and I’m cold, so here is some fabric instead! You get a twofer as I couldn’t find my camera charger to get one up in time last week:)
I’d like to invite any of you fellow fabric heads out there to join a new group I started on flickr, Modern Fabric Porn. Along with a cheeky sense of fun, this group is striving to be a definitive source for fabric inspiration and color matching. We are attempting to curate a groups of the highest quality pictures and we’d love to have some of your work. Any photos with quality lighting and true to life color are welcomed. (I’m also looking for some additional moderators, so drop me a line here or on flickr if you’d like to help comb the web for some sexy stacks of fabric!)
This is my jumping off point for my PTS7 partner. I love aqua, red and gray. I think the little pops of orange give it a nice depth.
I’m loving the Retro Kitchen line by Micheal Miller. I was instantly transported to my grandmother’s summer cottage when I saw it. That kitchen is burned so deeply into many childhood memories. So, today’s stack is dedicated to the memories of sunshine filtering through the kitchen windows, a whiff of green grass and the scent of the river playing in on the breeze.I love the Pacific Northwest but sometimes I miss the Maryland summers.
I finished up 30 granny square and got my top pieced. I’ll be working on that this weekend and trying to decide how to quilt it. What are you working on?
