gauche flowers

holy guacamole, i haven't posted on this thing in over a week. that is bad. it's not like i don't have anything to say. i always have things to say, i just haven't said them, it, whatever. i haven't done a lot of sewing this week to be honest. i am in limbo right now, one where like four projects are going on at one time, and i don't have the things i need to finish any of them. that has been somewhat alleviated though, as i stopped by spool today to grab some supplies. i am also v.v. excited, for next week i will be making my sample for the class i'm teaching, little green tree fabric, i am sooooo coming for you! i also grabbed some of the tufted tweet in blue and green from them. oh man oh man, i needed it! i want to cover my life in it!

it's by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman. It makes me so happy.

you know what else makes me happy? i usually grab flowers from this little street vendor after work once a week. walking by, she had these crazy orchids, which i had to have...

when i brought them back to work, i was basically told they were a bit gauche, as they are colored flowers, or whatever, something about food dye... i, for one, do not care. gauche me up! i know nothing about flowers, nothing! only that they are sometimes pretty, and sometimes awesome! these flowers...awesome.

so now i have fabrics drying all over the house from their pre-wash. gotta get sewing. big time. promise, something new will be finished in the next day or two. promise!
