Cold winter temperatures arrived overnight on Sunday, along with lots of frost on the windows and powdery snowfall dusting the frigid landscape of winter. It will be a least -30 Celsius tonight and not much warmer than that tomorrow. Kind of hard to be excited about temperatures that cold! Is it any wonder then, that I found myself seeking solace in some pretty fabric? I know, I know, I'll use any excuse to explain my fabric obsession. ;o) Tell me though, don't you feel better when you see the warm and sunny brightness of orange fabric?
I will admit that this colour has slowly started to win me over, perhaps in part because I've been on a mission to collect orange fabrics to make a quilt for my husband. Orange is his favourite colour and I thought a quilt of his own would be mighty nice when he's at his desk (in our home office). It's amazing how cold you get sitting in front of the computer. Orange not being my favourite colour, meant that it was basically non-existent in my stash. What's a girl to do?! ;o) I think you know. Well, it was only a simple matter of patience, as I started gathering what I needed and (thanks to some New Year's specials) I'm really excited to also be trying out some Kona solids for the first time. Look at the lovely bundle of FQs I bought on sale from Pink Chalk Fabrics!
