As I was putting my palette together yesterday the colors felt southwestern so I search Spoonflower again, and as always... I wasn't disappointed.  (I didn't even know I needed head-dress wearing panda fabric!)

I accidentally made a palette I would love to use in a little girl's nursery. :) Because of that I tried to keep the fabrics light and airy.

Color Play Friday: Public Transit

So this picture was taken about this time of year two years ago when I was stuck on public transit on my way to my first job at a different quilt shop in Bellevue, Washington. I had just moved up to our northrn neck of the woods, which made the commute in public transit anywhere from 3-5 hours round trip! Now you can understand the anguish and bordom in my face!!!

At first I debate whether or not to add this photo to the #colorplayfriday photo pool, but there are so many colors in it (thanks to filters) I really thought it would be fun to work with. Lorinda chose it for this week because we are on the last leg of summer break and this is basically how we are feeling now.

I'm sorry that I missed last week. The Little One's birthday celebrations, along with other family changes, dominated my time and I totally forgot. Now, here it is Monday morning, and I'm just now posting last week's #colorplayfriday. I'm sure I will get back into the swing of things too. Just a lot going on in the last month of summer vacation! Thank you for baring with me.

Color Play Friday: Idaho Storm

Today's bundle doesn't really go together in one project. Instead I went with natural brain flow which looked something like this....
Idaho Storm > minus the storm because its dark and deary here today and I don't want to focus on that > Idaho.... > hmm everyone knows potatoes come from Idaho I should see there is a cool potato fabric on Spoonflower!

So I browsed potato fabric and kitchen fabric for a while because its so cute. Then I remembered one of my favorite parts of Idaho was the Craters of the Moon place we camped out when I was 14. Also I remembered all the signs warning about respiratory infection or something like that from rodent poo... so then I had to start searching rodent fabric!!!

This is my brain sometimes -sometimes its scary, but I found some super cute indy fabric! Check it out!
