This morning on a trip to dayle's to drop off some patterns, I spotted this gorgeous black print.
Granted, it doesn't look so gorgeous in this picture, but trust me...it is. They also had it in red and green; all three colourways were equally stunning. I couldn't resist and came home with a couple of metres of the black with no project in mind, but just to have. I petted and admired it as I worked away, all the while hearing this little voice whispering, "really, Karen? They had it in red and you bought BLACK?" So we all know I trotted back down to dayle's to get that red.
I introduced it to the rest of my Christmas collection and love how it goes with...well, everything. It is red after all. ( I've never met a red I didn't like.)
And of course, once that fabric was laid out there was nothing I could do except start sewing...
