Here are the new colors for fall:
This amused me because of that last color, Turbulence. I kept seeing a really dark gray yarn at the store and accidentally forgot I already had that color, so due to my purchasing amnesia, I now have enough yarn for three sweaters in the stash. I already made some of it into a Fair Isle sweater, but will make two more, one a cardigan and one a pullover. And look, I will be in fashion (a rare occurrence)!
I think that the name you give a color should give SOME hint of what color it is, and Vivacious and Samba do not. Turbulence is a little cutesy.
In sewing news, I have some alterations to do for one of the daughters and a sock to mend, but mostly at the moment I am interested in sewing some new bags for me. My usual handbag is approaching disintegration so I need to get busy. I really like messenger bags out of striking fabrics like these from JHFabricCreations on Etsy (the handbags in this shop are gorgeous!)
I like a bag with a front flap and lots of pockets. I need the strap to be adjustable so I’ll have to figure out how to do that. I have lots of decorator fabrics in the stash that would be good for this. I have made lots of bags for the daughters but not many for myself. Now that I have been using Polyvore for awhile, I see that having a bag wardrobe and a shoe wardrobe could be fun.
