|color/pattern combos that are right up my alley|
And over the summer I happened across a few more irresistible items - on sale, no less - to add to the pile.
The orange/natural chevron was riiiigghhht up my alley and I bought enough to do a very large pinboard with. It's actually kinda dizzying spread out. Maybe combining it with something that cuts it down a bit would be ideal. Although, the idea is cover it with clippings, etc so it would probably only be visible in tiny patches...
And then there was this darling print which I took for a sort of lotus pattern right off. With the ogee/zardozee frame...it was just so totally me. Unlike the chevron, this is not a plain cotton. It's a superfine voile. Far too delicate for a pinboard. I think it undercuts brights very nicely. It was the end of the bolt so I got about four yards.
Have you been controlling your impulses this summer?
