You might be wondering, "So what happened to all of that fabric you bought weeks ago?"
The answer: not much. Oh, but it has multiplied.
After taking some time to pout over the fact that Kate wasn't thoroughly stoked about my original selections, I knew I needed to reconsider. Getting Kate to actually go with me to the fabric store would be a worthless feat...we'd both be miserable. So I took what clues I could from Kate's reaction, honed all of the "don't take things so personally" mojo that I could muster, and trekked back to the fabric store with a fresh set of eyes. Here's what I let guide me:
- In an earlier conversation, we both agreed that we liked charcoal grey and butter yellow with pops of color.
- Kate mentioned being put off by how much mustard yellow I picked out the first time around, so I tried to look for less earthy tones.
- Her original favorite was a bright coral, so I worked with that as I sifted through fabric.
I have to say, I like what I came up with for Round 2!
I especially like these 2 groups (what looks like red is closer to coral.)
Not that I'm giving up on Round 1 completely.
So now the question is, what am I going to do with all of this fabric??
Here are some of the things I'm considering:
Not sure yet what we'll decide, but I'm definitely doing something. If only to justify the new sewing machine I just ordered!
