The countdown to the school year ended today and the Labor Day weekend weather in Seattle truly could not have gotten any better.
I love autumn for its closure on a loose routine and boots, I like boots. But it also makes me want to sew and look at all the new colors and fabrics that come with a new season.
It also makes me walk into fabric stores without a child.
West Seattle Fabric Company had Denyse Schmidt’s new line Florence and a whole rainbow of Michail Miller solids, my new solid favorite.
I think Denyse got the right mix of retro involved in this line, I can see it blending with a lot of other prints and solids. I’m also trying to get over my fear of brown, so this Michael Miller is my gateway brown.
I’m especially in love with the dot. They had a bunch more of the line I was tempted by, but my stack should do it. You can view it here.
I’ve already made my dream pile. Now I just have to get to the load of other projects before starting another. I’m sure Jefe is wondering why I haven’t made him anything patchwork for the Vanagon yet.
Happy sewing friends, for me it is officially autumn! P.S. a little bird told me that there are open studios and classes galore for fall, so go check them out!
