Spring in Maine is a stop again, start again affair. A warm couple of days, followed by snow. And this year is no different. But, with the roll out of covid vaccinations, there is a definite sense of a long cold winter, and a long hard year, coming to an end.
So, in keeping with this optimism, people have been buying pink. And, lots of it. Below are some of the fabrics with pink that have been of interest.
The winner for sales has been the
pink and green windowpane plaid.
There is also another pink windowpane-
it is a softer pink and is paired with a peach tone.
These are both pretty fabrics.
The pink and green is more bold,
and has a crisp look to it.
The pink and peach colorway is soft,
with a gentle look.
These windowpane plaids
have the added interest of a small tassel
where the same colors intersect.
These are nice for everything from
table cloths to bedspreads and duvets.
Clarence House’ silk taffeta, Tropo,
in pink has gotten a lot of interest.
This has a plaid background of white and cream,
with several shades of pink and lilac.
A toss of embroidered blossoms punctuate it.
This has a soft look, but a crisp feel.
There is not a lot of drape to it,
but it would make wonderful Roman shades.
The pink Anemone Flower Fabric
seems more of a summer fabric,
with its many blooming meadow flowers.
It is a pretty floral with pinks and plums and touches of yellow.
This is a nice choice for curtains, cushions, and bedding
where one wants the look of a profusion of flowers.
The Bird Cherry Fabric has always said spring to me.
It is as if a flock of birds has flown in,
having wintered in a warmer area
and have chosen to rest
and eat the berries left over from the fall,
surrounded by the trees’ spring flowers which are in full bloom.
The Pink Angel Stripe Fabric is a French toile with many details .
The wide stripes have different angels with flowers
done in shades of pink and violet,
bordered with pink stripes with buff yellow, pink, and violet.
