A couple of weeks ago I picked up these paint cards at the hardware store. I was on some other mission that ended up taking me past the Martha Stewart Paint display and they caught my eye. I love Martha, I've loved her since I was pregnant with Frankie, sitting home on maternity leave, waiting those last two weeks before her arrival and watching endless hours of daytime TV. (The grammar police will soon be here, look at all those commas.. yikes I hear the sirens now.) Martha came on our local PBS channel with her Thanksgiving special and I was hooked. I have the Fire King to prove it.
I have tried and tried since I picked these cards up, to get a good photo of them. Did I brag too much about my picture taking skills, is that why I am unable to get a nice clear shot? I love the soft colors. Normally I don't like green with aqua, but I see how they're so artfully chosen my gal Martha and it opens possibilities that I didn't consider before.
I've been working on my fun knitted purse from Laughing Hens and it's almost done. Now I need a new project, particularly since I am off to Quilt Market and there will be times when I need to keep busy but still chat. Something to pick up and then put down. I went on a mission to find some yarn and look what I ended up with. I think I'll make a new purse just like the one I am making now because I haven't had my fill of that picot edge.
My recent fabric purchases fresh from my cutting table where I carelessly tossed them. (I mean seriously, am I even using the table now?? ) I didn't even really think about these purchases, at least in relationship to the cards, but somehow, those colors are just on my mind. I'll save this pile and hope for a project to come along. (or possibly pile it all back on the table, sigh. )
