color and beauty
I didn't want the week to slip away without sharing a little beauty with you. The gorgeous fabrics above are part of my dear friend Jan DiCintio's (aka Daisy Janie) latest fabric collection, New Leaf. Beautiful, colorful, organic cotton! I purchased mine from a great little etsy shop, Tactile Fabrics. If you'd like to see more of New Leaf, check out the New Leaf Bee Block Blog Hop.
While I can't show you what I am sewing with New Leaf right now (hint: it'll be in my upcoming book!) I can show you what I am knitting: socks! I know, big thrill, right? But look at this amazing yarn. It is Regia sock yarn in "Garden effects" by Kristin Nicholas. It's like the yarn and fabric were practically made for each other. Beautiful color.
I recently read a quote from the artist Kaffe Fassett: "Color is so deeply affirming that I wonder why anyone questions its vital role in our lives." Love that.
