Hello again! I am back from a two-week stay with my family, refreshed and almost recovered from the cold my dad so generously spread all over. It’s always wonderful to see my parents, and then it’s also always great to come back home. This time it was even better than usual because there was a rainbow of fabric waiting for me when I returned.
Here’s how that happened: when I called Banksville Fabrics* to order the fabric needed to recut the fronts of a recent unfinished project, I asked for swatches of other bright solid-colored knits. The swatches got here in record time and the colors were of the spirit-lifting variety. See for yourself:
I promptly ordered a bunch of them, in 3-yard pieces, which should be enough for a sleeveless dress and a cardigan. Also, before the swatches arrived, I realized I was out of the black Sophia knit and when I went to order more, Vogue Fabrics* had other interesting colors like turquoise and lime green and pretty neutrals like winter white and burgundy. Of course, I ordered those too.
*no affiliation, just a happy customer
Fast forward to yesterday. I came home to two large boxes of fabric. As I opened the one from Banksville Fabrics, this was on top:
I put it aside right then because I wanted to see and touch my fabrics first. When I stacked them all on the cutting table, I just wanted to hug them. They looked like a rainbow. So happy and bright. Much like the Bright Winter color fan.
When I opened the envelope, out came another rainbow:
How cool is that? Fabric rainbows everywhere!
