I went on a little outing midday to get something to wear to an event this evening and made an extra stop to pick up some Amy Butler Sun Spots in olive for a binding.
While there, I saw and picked up some Wild Thyme in green and blue, just because I really like the print and wanted some for my stash.
Then, after I had just this morning decided to wait until next month to purchase any Nicey Jane (which I adore), I saw this and just had to have it.
A funny little fountain of Nicey Janes in blues and greens. They didn't have any of the ones with pink and red in them, and these fabrics originally seemed a bit lost to me without them, but I thought this would make a nice start. The FQ roll didn't come with all of the FQs of Nicey Jane that they had on hand so, of course, I had to buy a couple more.
There are actually two non-Nicey Jane fabrics in the roll.
I really like this green leaf fabric a lot and had been looking at it earlier in a pink colorway.
This small scale heart-shaped leaves on vines fabric is not something I think I ordinarily would have chosen, but it is starting to grow on me.
When I got to the cutting table, the clerk and I both noticed how beautiful all the soft blue and green fabrics went together, and she excitedly asked about what special project I was working on. She was visibly disappointed to learn that they were just random purchases, not chosen to go together. Then she brightened and said that I had probably just chosen my favorite colors, so naturally they looked great together! I admitted that while I liked these colors, I couldn't really claim that they were my favorites. After that she gave up trying to make conversation with her weird and confusing customer. It's interesting to be such a disappointment to someone you don't even know. Damn, I'm good!
As I scroll back up over the pictures I've just posted, these colors just seem to get prettier and prettier. They have a very calming effect on me. I just might have to see what else I have in my stash and do something in these colors after all.
The funny thing is, I am about to start a quilt in blues and greens -- just different blues and greens. Hmmmm. Maybe I should get my blue and green stacks together and see what happens.
With wishes, true and kind -- Joan
