On a dark dreary day in January - what's better to beat back the gloomies than a ray of sunshine from my best buddy Jill. While cleaning up her stash room these past few weeks, she set aside a few little goodies that she thought I would enjoy - and courtesy of the USPS they showed up at my house yesterday.
I thought I showed great restraint by not tearing open the box in the van on the way home - I actually took care of some other things first after we got in the door - and also waited until I could get Hubby to snap a few shots of me diving in.
As you can see from the "diving" photo - the first thing my hand went to was this great rainbow stripe! How cheerful is that! It's a nice homespun texture and brilliant colors.
The little pile on the right is some flannels - small pieces that Jill knows I like to incorporate as "batting" or a bit extra in some of my little crafty projects - plus a great purple!!!
And check out this "rainbow" of solids - they are all nice wovens with rich color -will work great as "blenders" with some of my busier scraps - giving the eye a place to rest. Lots of blues in many different hues - which will work great with a few projects I am contemplating.
And then there were these - what a great breath of spring!!! Especially since I have been working with such bright, intense colors in the BOM project - it is wonderful to think about these fabrics and what they can become.
Thanks for my Rainbow, Jill! I love it all!!!
