Fabric love..

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!!

Ooooh, so pretty, love the cascade of blues, and the orange and pomegranate both look fab with them

The blues do look great. Although I like the orange, the pomegranate is my first choice. Can I be your swap partner?

Judith said...

Yummy indeed. Janette/River Fabrics is only 10mins down the road from me!! But so far I've only ordered online, despite the temptation to call in! Jxo

The orange and blue combo, with the grey, is fabulous! Yes, I'll be back to see what you have planned.

Very yummy stack of Just Wing It, definitely curious what you've got planned :) I love both of your stacks of Konas, but I'm most drawn to the one with the orange...

Beautiful fabrics - both solids and prints!

~I order all my solids from River Fabrics too. Jannete is fantastic. My order always comes the next day. You should invest in a Kona Solids Chart. Janette might be able to get them in. Worth every penny, but I have found I buy a lot more fabric ...'oh I like that colour'

I've used River Fabrics before, they're good :-) LOVE the bundle with the pommegranate, wish I was your partner!

Those solids look so much lovelier on a proper computer screen than my poxie phone - yum x
