Here is a little more character for you. I found these vintage apple bowls on ebay. They are the perfect shade of pale green. Just enough yellow in them to not be Crayola. I have been SO in to color lately. Studying it-playing with it, really experimenting with "designer" color. In designing fabric, I try really hard to come up with colors that are not ordinary, but you will still be able to go to the store and find ric rac and thread to go with it for your project. When I would pick a color, I would literally go around to different craft stores, fabric stores etc..and see if there were things it could go with. Paints, buttons, yarn etc.. I love color. White walls don't stand a chance in my home.
On other news-I have an interview up on Boutique Cafe! It's a podcast, so you can actually listen to me talk. :) It was so exciting to chat with Daria again (we met at the Girl's Getaway weekend.) I yacked her ear off about going to market, my design process, my patterns, meeting fabric celebrities, how to go about getting started in the business and on and on. Daria is awesome, she has the most adorable voice and is so genuinely interested in the people she interviews.
