This morning on my other blog I posted a list of 10 Ordinary Things That Bring Me Joy. Of course one of the things is fabric. Then it occurred to me that since I haven't posted anything here in what seems like forever and I don't have anything finished to show off yet I could just make a sewing related list, so...
10 Kinds of Fabric That Make me Ridiculously Happy
1. Brightly colored prints with a black background. I'm working on one of those right now.
2. Delicate, old fashioned floral prints.
3. Paisley. I have always loved it but the fact that someone thinks it's evil makes it even more appealing to me for the humor aspect of it.
4. Fall leaf prints. My mother was especially fond of these so they're sentimental for me as well as the fact that I simply like them too.
6. Cotton lawn. It amazes me that something as ordinary as cotton can be so fine and delicate. I don't sew with it very often because it seems too fine for everyday wear. I always imagine that this must be the fabric that angels wear.
7. Fun or silly novelty prints, especially insects, chickens, sewing notions, and ordinary household items
8. Plaids, flannel or any other plaid fabric
10. Almost anything pink
