The weather is continuing to be fine. So much to do at this time of year! The days just fly past! It is hard to believe that Christmas is coming within two months! This year most people seem to be making cushions for their friends and family, though tote bags continue to be popular as well.

So, think about what a person loves, buy some fabric that would interest them, and make a pillow for a gift!

Right now the hottest colors are neutrals and red! I mean red like has not been seen since the late ’70’s! Bright, strong red. I see it in lipstick, sweaters, suits. And men are wearing it as well!

What do we have for red?
Well, the reds that spring to mind are the berry red Laura Ashley toile.
This always makes me smile:
the lady fishing just looks soo comfortable!


For a strong true red
the red toile with birds and passion flowers is just right!

Moving toward a true scarlet is the
red waterlily fabric.
This is a most surprising fabric with softly colored autumn leaves and birds with brilliant white waterlilies on a swath of scarlet!
