August 2011 Stash Building

After a very long two week wait, my much anticipated fabric order arrived. I am such a Joel Dewberry & Tula Pink fan, check out this fabric combination:

Pink - Dewberry

Is it just me? Do you love this combination as much as I do? Joel Dewberry’s Heirloom in Citrine and Tula Pink’s Flutteryby Dragonfly print in Aqua, to me, its a stunningly gorgeous, dynamic combination. I just received the Dragonfly print after work today, it was sent to me by a lovely woman in Brazil, purchased on Etsy as part of a fabric swap. Thank you Gabriela, I LOVE it!!

I added more Tula Pink Parisville to my stash, mixing it up with Heirloom in Garnet. ❤

I also picked up 2 , 1/2 yard prints of Dena Fishbein’s  Taza. I had originally intended to purchase 1/2 a yard of each print but I’m glad I didn’t, I was really expecting a deeper, more saturated red in the Medallion print, it looks faded and washed out to me, not what I was expecting.  I also ordered a 1/2 yard of Caroline which has more punch but I’m not head over heels for it. I was surprised that the backgrounds of these two prints aren’t the same tone. Was this a mistake or intentional?

The new  Tina Givens fabric, Pernillas Journey, Elephant Run in Cotton Candy didn’t ring my bell either. The pink certainly is cotton candy but it just seems there should be more overall contrast, especially in the sketchy pencil lines.

DH’s birthday is this weekend and his new camera is arriving tomorrow, he’s getting the newly released Sony NEX-5N.  FIFTEEN megapixel madness with 1080P HD video capture, shutter lag time of just 20 milliseconds, a magnesium-alloy body and interchangeable lenses. Finally we’ll have depth of field again, something I’ve been complaining about with our old camera, an HD Lumix which is an excellent point and shoot for travelling. Hopefully my photos will be more exciting soon!
