Why do I have this look on my face? Porque I have made this "vow" sort of thing to FINISH some quilts, make the quilts I have already cut up, planned or bought the fabric for. . . but, in addition to the Happy fabric I raved about in my last post, I had to go and travel around the blog world, and find the amazing quilts of Don't Look Now! I mean, clearly it is not my fault if I take a detour to make the I (heart) pink quilt or the monster quilt. OMG, must have, must make. Maybe I can make a DLN quilt with Holiday Happy fabric.
ok, but there are also the awesome new fabrics and quilts out there, like Caramel Town, also by Lecien, Cherry House quilts and the awesome book, City Quilts; Elizabeth at Late Bloomer Quilts and her gorgeous, fun, happy, bright new fabrics that, in my opinion are like electric versions of Cath Kidston's fabrics. Then there is Holly Holderman of Lakehouse Dry goods. Check out pictures of her booth at market on the blog and her new fabric line Fun Flowers 1, 2 and 3. OMG again.
I am back to head spinning, quilt planning and drooling on my computer. I love love love the amazing variety of fabrics and inspiring designs out there. It is worth the AADD despair of knowing I will not be able to make all the quilts in my head and out in the quiltiverse, just to be able to make a few and admire the rest.
Hey, back to my AADD, I realize that I have an apron that I got in an apron swap that would fit right in with that black, white and hot pink and orange color theme of the Lakehouse booth:
(modeled by my blonde twin, ha ha) Actually it's me when I was blonde, about a year ago. Speaking of hair color, today I was brunette and tonight, I am a red head!! Well, Cherry Chocolate is the actual name of the color that I gooped onto my head tonight. (why are hair colors named after food??) It seems like a very mild and subtle color here at 11 pm in my house. I can't wait to see it in the sunlight tomorrow. ciao
