It has been quite a while since I have purchased any new fabric. I have not imposed any "no fabric" diets - my lack of new fabric simply comes down to not having time to do any shopping. So recently, some of my friends felt I needed a break so they organized a little fabric shopping trip to one of my favorite fabric stores (Quiltwork Patches in Corvallis Oregon).
Fabric shopping with good friends....How could I say no?!?
I have been wanting to get some more yardage of Studio E's Peppered Cottons for a project I have planned. These fabrics are a shot cotton and I love the rich colors that are available...In fact, I can't cut into them yet because I am not done petting them! I am just finishing up a project using a spicy orange which I hope to share in a day or two.
And Alexander Henry tugged hard at my pocketbook with this wonderful zebra head print. It is called Zahara by the De Leon Design Group. Isn't it wonderful! Not sure yet what I am making but I am perfectly happy just owning it. It is now sitting on one of the shelves in my studio - coincidentally with a number of other Alexander Henry prints I have picked up over the years.
Is there a fabric designer whose prints always seem to capture your heart?
Just say No to Housework!
