I chose my favourite all purpose Kona: Medium Grey. I can always use this when I'm not sure what Kona to go with. The other colours from the top down are: sage, sea foam, periwinkle and teal (it's not quite so obvious from the photograph which is which. The photo doesn't do these lovelies justice.)
I already have a plan for the teal. Which involves lining a 241 tote - can't say too much more about that as it's destined for a Christmas present. ;-)
If you're looking for Kona in the UK I have to say River Fabrics certainly give you plenty of choice. Over 100 colours in stock (by my shoddy maths reckoning!) But lots! There are some other things that are really tempting me: like England Swings and Modern Meadow, and of course Aviary 2
But my fabric chest of drawers is nearly full to capacity. So I've got to get on and make before I can go buy more stuff. (Either that or clear out the final available drawer in the chest. But as I need to do more decluttering before I can contemplate that we'll say it's full.) So no rushing off to River Fabrics and buying absolutely everything I love...well ok if you must. Just leave me something ok?
Also in the post today was the last of the fabric orders I'm waiting on. I'd been mooching around Etsy looking for something highly important at the time - which of course I've completely forgotten about now, when I saw a shop was having a closing down sale (it's now closed or I'd put a link in) with some silly prices on fabric. I restrained myself to this:
Three, one yard cuts of Pips. I think the blue puppies maybe my favourite in the range. Also, a charm pack of Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket, which looks even better in person. I'm developing a bit of a precut addiction. A whole range in a neat little bundle. Oh the possibilities.
And just so you don't think I've been shirking on the making front I've started on an Autumn inspired pillow top. So far I've fused the trunk and a selection of leaves (need to add a few more) to look like a breezy Autumn day is helping the tree shed its leaves. I then plan a border of scrappy squares and some embroidered details.
So best get back to it!
