Ah, Friday. Here are some of my favorite photos this week. You can click on the mosaic to get individual photo credits. I came this close to buying the Heather Ross horses fabric in the green skirt on the bottom row, but I resisted. It’s not like I have a particular attachment to horses. I just love the black tights and skirt look, and really, I already have twelve skirts from last summer in my closet that ought to make fitting substitutes.
So, I dodged the bullet on that one, but as it turns out, I ended up buying a bunch more fabric last night. Mostly I bought fat quarters on Etsy, but I did also buy some yardage for a skirt (hey, didn’t I just say I didn’t need another skirt?) and for another pair of lounge pants (I think springy/summery cropped ones this time).
The fat quarters are coming with me next weekend to the Clayathon, because I’ve decided that I want to spend much of my time custom-mixing colors, and making batches of buttons. Some of the buttons will go up for sale on Etsy, and others will be incorporated into scarves, aprons, and maybe tote bags, most of which will also end up on Etsy. I’ve got some Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt and Aviary and Chestnut Hill, both by Joel Dewberry, on the way. Should be fun – I’m getting all excited about button-making!
