After yesterday's craft fail, my spirits were lifted by waking up to all the fab comments you left me - thanks so much everyone, you had great ideas and advice and there were so many possible solutions that I'm going to mull it over before deciding which to go with and keep for myself. I'll try version 2 later on in the week!
Then the postman came and they lifted even further when I opened my package to find my Kona solids for the For the Love of Solids swap. I wanted a range of blues and some orange for contrast (plus some greys). I ordered these from River Fabrics which is based in Co. Down, not too far away from me at all, and I'll definitely be going back to Janette for more fabric, her customer service was fab! I asked her for help choosing some blues because of how hard it can be to tell the minute shade variations on screen, told her I was looking for a cascade of shades and she came up trumps with this combo - isn't it fab? I think the oranges look great with the blues.
But I also ordered some pomegranate on a whim and I think it also looks great with the blues!
We'll see what my partner decides!!
I then went and pulled these lovely Just Wing It FQs from my stash. Yum yum!!! Want to see what I'm thinking of them for? Check back Monday!!
