New era of fabric

Denyse Schmidt changed my life.  Really, she did.  Attending her workshop has, creatively speaking, set me free.  I don’t want to use patterns, (if it can be avoided), and I’m just having so much fun chopping up my fabric any which way and then putting it back together.  My husband better watch out and hide his Liberty of London boxers I bought him before I take my scissors to those, too.  Last night, I just might have even cut up some University of Oklahoma boxers.  I’ll never tell.

It’s even changing my shopping habits.  Instead of buying prints, I’m really drawn more to the solids.  Which is a good thing because I’ve been stashing solids for about 6 months now.  Last week, I bought this beautiful bundle of Kaffe Fasset’s colorshots from Sheree’s Alchemy.  Imagine two complementary colors woven together, and oh, what beauty!  They sort of shimmer, and they are just divine.  The very day my fabric came in, I just had to cut up a couple of them to try them out.

I haven’t fallen this hard since the Moda crossweave entered my life.

    I think I am in love with the K. Fasset collection. The turrquoise reminds me of my “Vision of lovely fashion” that I will be making this weekend-BTW, the vision has turned into a “nightmare” rather than lovely……………….
