Navy blue

I love blue, but I rarely buy navy blue fabric.

I’m not sure why. I guess I’m just drawn to the paler blues.

But when I saw this navy blue corduroy, I immediately bought several yards of it.

It’s just so thick and lush, and the color is perfect for this time of year. And it’s always good to work with new colors.

Alex and I are going to sample wedding cakes this week. Oh, planning a wedding is so rough!

    Can I just say, I *love* that floral inside fabric! It reminds me of the book ramshackle roost that I had when I was little- it was a very 1970’s book. Or maybe the tea trays my Gram used to have. Okay it reminds me of a lot of things. 🙂
