Anyway, I still have the matching pillowcase and I dragged it out this morning to photograph. Guess what - it contains all of those colors I've been so drawn to lately; pastel greens, purples and pinks.
I don't know if it is a mid-life thing or if it is because the weather patterns in Far Far Upstate NY have been more "traditional" in the past 18 months than at any other time in the last 20 years, but I have been very nostalgic for the 70's lately. Don't you love this vintage fabric? It's so sweet. If you were clever, you could download one of these photos, crop it and turn it into wallpaper for you computer. I may do that eventually but today Maxx is pestering for my attention. The color saturation has been boosted a bit to help bring back some of the original brightness - you can see it on the inside seam where washing scours less color away. (I discovered that my mom took the same sort of shortcuts I would while making a pillowcase - she used the selvedge as the open edge for the pillowcase - one less seam for a busy working mom to sew.)
Beadologistkelly. Drool! (Again with the pinks and greens!) I can't wait to play with them - maybe next week.
