I don’t know what is up with me lately and my affinity for gray and yellow, but this weekend I stopped by one of my LQS’s (although they call themselves a “craft” store), Fancy Tiger Crafts. As I approached the door, they had a rack of sale fabric sitting outside. A sale?? Yes, please. When I started rifling through the bolts I realized, “Hey! This is Prince Charming from Tula Pink!!”. I was super excited. Especially because I didn’t have any of that line yet. I know, I know, it’s blasphemy! Well, now I do, and would you believe that I got a 1/4 yard of each bolt for less than $12 for all of them?? Insane! I also grabbed some fabulous gray and yellow fat quarters that they had pre-cut already, and last but not least, I grabbed Julie from Jaybird Quilt’s Jawbreaker Pillow Pattern. I have a plan for that pattern and my living room couch. Now I just need to find the perfect fabric or jelly roll, hmm. I thinking “Lark – Glamour” would look really spectacular in my living room.
I also checked my mail today, since I didn’t remember yesterday, and I found a beautiful cross-stitched card from my grandmother for my birthday. Inside was a Starbuck’s gift card (my saving grace this week, I can already tell), and some $ to spend as I wish. I know that I will most likely be spending it on fabric, or possibly some other crafty item. I’ll let you know. Thanks Grandma!
Yesterday, I did a little shopping. My mom and dad gave me an Anthropologie gift card for my birthday. I LOVE ANTHROPOLOGIE!! So, of course I spent it. I got two fabulous tops (one is pictured below) and a lovely candle for my craft room. It smells like honeysuckle (yummy) and it came in a light pink glass container that looks like hobnail glass (another of my obsessions).
Well, that’s about it for now. I better get to work on my lesson plans for this week. Only three more weeks left. Then…SUMMER and hopefully, a job (since I moved to Denver and just can’t commute 3 hours a day anymore.) Here’s hoping it will be a good week. Happy Crafting Everyone.
One thought on “Modern Gray and Yellow”
Erica, I love the fabrics and colors. Grey and Yellow must be really popular this sprng, I see it all over. Love the top and the candleholder. Glad that you could find something pretty! It was a productive shopping day. Good job. Love you, Mom
