What We Love - December 8, 2011
We have a variety of new products to share with you today. Let's get started with a couple of Cotton Print/Quilting collections. We were so excited when the Good Night Moon collection from Quilting Treasures hit the dock. We practically ran it through the building to be photographed and added to the website. Based on the popular children's rhyme, the colors are bold and the graphics are sophisticated, but still child-like. We have also recently added an organic cotton collection from Clothworks called Safari Sweet. Vickie, our Quilting Merchant, loves a good animal print. She likes the colors - not too bright, not too pastel. And, she likes the fact that it could work for boys or girls. That's always a plus!
It is difficult for me to say ''beautiful'' and ''fleece'' in the same sentence, but this collection of Micro Fleece in Nicey Jane prints from Heather Bailey is beautiful fleece fabric. Even those who are not ''fleece fans'' might be persuaded to have a vest or a throw made from these modern prints in contemporary colors. Since it is micro fleece, the weight is really nice for climates like the Beautiful South, too.
I love wearing luxurious fabrics in the colder months. I am the type that wears sequins to the office. Not full on Miss-America-1975-evening-gown sequins, but I do like a little sparkle and shine even for an every day office look. I think that's why I have always loved the look of Chinese Brocade . I have a little collection of silk ones that I've had for years. I use bits and piece from them in special projects. The rayon/poly ones we have are worthy of a fabulous project for day or night! I'd suggest a small handbag or a great vest. Of course, a jacket would be superb, and perfect to wear with jeans anytime anywhere!
