sunday stash

wow, so I really am terrible about updating this thing! But rest assured that I frequently update in my head.

Yesterday, my housemate and I went to the SF Quilt Guild show. It was fun. I took a bunch of pictures that I will post tomorrow. The best part about it was that I FINALLY caved and bought the fabrics for my month (September) of SC3. All of the fabrics (except one) are from the Mendocino line and I loooooove them. I know they're not exciting or new and everyone and their mom has made something with them, but it doesn't stop me from wholeheartedly loving them. This line is also one of the few that my boyfriend likes too. He (strangely) has a taste for SUPER kawaii and ridiculous novelty fabric, so this is a good middle point for us. I'll be getting a few more prints from the line, as well as adding some solids and maybe some orange prints. I am trying to force myself to get over my distaste for orange. Mixing it with my two other favorite colors, aqua and brown, really makes it easier.

mendocino!

I love this line! I bought a bunch over the holidays (and finally cut into some of it this weekend) but am already thinking about buying some more. Heather Ross is single-handedly responsible for me overcoming my distaste of orange.
