Sunday Stash #43 – Magic Suitcase V2.0 Part 02 – Kitchenette
First, before I even begin talking about fabrics, I finally discovered why Google was making my photos look like crap when I uploaded them. Ms. Peek & Ponder found the solution and shared how to fix it here. If you’ve had a similar problem, it’s as easy as unchecking a check box, but once again, Google+ is to blame. Grrr.
The good news is that I have plenty of fabrics to fondle to distract me from the failures of Google+. These all hitched a ride in the Magic Suitcase V2.0, and are now ready to jump into my fabric stash for immediate use. Some Angela Waters Textures, and some Floressence make great blenders…
… but the Michael Miller Mirror Ball Dots really get me spinning around! (LR) I was totally averse to them when they were first released, and now for the life of me I can’t figure out why I didn’t snatch them up immediately. I think we need a full reprinting and re-release in new colour ways. Bronze, golds, platinums, luxe luxe luxe, do you feel me?
Art Gallery’s Living Elements blenders get me every time! Don’t get me wrong, the Oval Elements are totally on my “love you forever” list. But everytime I see the Living Elements I feel like I’m going to walk through a glittery, crystalline, beaded curtain, and I wonder how I live without one in my house. I guess I’ll have to start that Christmas list now!
My major excitement from Part 02 of the Magic Suitcase V2.0 reveal are these goodies from Jeni Baker’s Color Me Retro line. I already have the full collection, but I grabbed half yards of the three Dulcettes, and four yards of Kitchenette in Honeydew from an Art Gallery sale at Intrepid Thread. That Kitchenette print is going to make a kick-ass backing for my MSBHQAL quilt. I had it pegged to be the backing for my Color Me Retro quilt (design still TBD), and when I mentioned this to Mr. Sparkles he said, “You’d better buy some more then!” Well, if you say so!
I love everything that keeps popping out of that Magic Suitcase, and can’t wait to start cutting some more of it up. Check back tomorrow for updates on the #MSBHQAL, and Tuesday will see a grand reveal of my QSMASBC–Google it–photo submission. It’s epic, and you know I don’t use that term lightly. Sparkle on.
