I can't help myself. I remember being younger and being amazed how much fabric my Aunt could buy before using all her other stuff...but now I'm just the same.
Anyway, I was working on a project recently and wanted a little bit of a solid fabric to go with it, and I discovered I really don't have any. Literally, I had like 6 different pieces of solid color cotton and considering how I have hundreds of prints...that was just a shame.
So when another blogger posted about Kona solids at Fabricshack.com for $3.99, I decided the time had come. And I ordered a whole palette. Apparently I kinda focused on blue. I'll have to balance it more later.
It's so fun to look at all the colors and to know when I go looking for something, I might actually have something usable in my stash.
Some of the colors were strange...which, of course, I expected. I think my least favorite is "pistachio". And I must say "denim" is not remotely denim colored (although it's a pretty enough blue). The lovely people at Fabric Shack were kinda enough to label all the colors as I had requested. Coal, teal blue, chartreuse, and squash are just yummy!
