Do you remember the first time that you fell in love?... really in love, head over heals, couldn't breath, couldn't eat, couldn't think straight in love? Was it love at first sight, or was it the more time that you spent together the more you noticed all those special little details that set them apart from the rest? Were you young and impetuous and the whole world seemed to be at the tip of your fingers or had you saved your heart until you were old enough to process and appreciate the depth of what the word meant?
However it may have been for you, I just had to shout from the rooftops that I am in love... again! One could perhaps say that I am being quite dramatic, especially since I am talking about fabric... but I have to say that it is not far off how I felt when I first saw the new fabric collection, "Love" from Amy Butler.
Don't these just remind you of something from a summer romance... perhaps a picnic on a perfectly warm, bright blue sky day, ending with a plate full of juicy watermelon, cantaloupe, fruit, and everything that is fresh?
Perhaps these bring to mind an evening stroll on the beach, hand in hand, soaking in the cool blues and aquas of the soothing water that fades in and out, refreshing each time it rolls over your feet as you enjoy the change in color as the night starts to wrap itself around you.
Just like a first love, I can't wait to get together, spend time with, and create something beautiful with this fabric. Visions of sewing projects are swirling through my head almost making me dizzy... how divine. Think you might be in "love" too? Fabrics can be found here.
