hello, yellow fabric roundup!

this post went up today on the blog "made" for part of celebrate yellow! thanks for the kind words dana - you made my month!

hi everyone, i'm shannon from the blog luvinthemommyhood! we luv a good roundup in our friendly neighbourhood - in fact i like to round things up once a week. i secretly like to call myself an internet cowgirl, one who sports the sweetest pair of cowgirl (boy) boots who actually manages to find the best dang fit for a pair of jeans, and who always, always, looks fabulous dirty, with no hair or makeup on. now we all know that's darn near impossible but a girl can daydream right?

when dana mentioned to me about coming on to do a roundup of yellow fabrics the first thing that came to mind was "yes, of course i'll come"..hello??....easy question...and then this.................

hello, yellow............

nice to meet you, let's get acquainted. now, i have to admit i haven't used a lot of yellow fabrics in my time of sewing, this internet wrangler isn't scared of a bright, hard to match color - no way! ok, yes, maybe a little - we all have a teensy bit of anxiety for bright colors right folks? ok, maybe i'm alone...haha, sometimes i feel like i'm the only one displaying my personality in prints instead of bright colors. what about you? do you lean towards graphic patterns instead of bright yellows, reds or oranges?

well fear no more. i went galloping around the blogosphere to source out some fun & wild, demure & soft, crazy & bright and just plain pretty yellow prints to hopefully fit the taste for just about any sewer. throw some of these into your next project. brighten up that quilt, add some sunshine to your little girls dress, add some pop to your living room decor, heck, why not make your next purse for fall out of a gorgeous saffron print? perfect. yummy. fabulous. or as we say around luvinthemommyhood - shantastic!

go on....don't be nervous....i'm right here with you, in fact i think i have some spare pairs of cowgirl boots kicking around that have your name written all over em'. let's go round up our machines ladies! it's time for "hello, yellow fabric roundup"!

i hope to see you out there in the wild, yellow west! thanks for having me dana, it's always a pleasure. you know how fab i think you are...and i know you all know how fab dana is, so i'll just say - you rock dana! i'm now addicted to yellow fabric and can't way to try out your dyed elastic trick. is there anything you CAN'T do? luv ya girl. chat with you in the late night blogging hours :P
