Do Not Adjust Your Set!

Or your screen... or rub your eyes... or get me a Doctor... this is not an illusion!

What you're seeing is real... I haven't lost my mind...
Yes I have deliberately selected, paid for, brought home & plan to sew with BLUE FABRICS!
Yes, it's true... I believe my complicated relationship with blue is changing.

You see, my Holiday Mode did a strange thing to my head... I've been playing with fabrics for my SuperLongTerm hexy project & decided that it would indeed be fun to have a few blues in the mix... dare I say it, widen the range of colours. The folded fabrics were already in the bag, & I decided to cut from them too. Actually I have two hexy projects that will be a long time in the making - but only SuperLongTerm will feature blues.

But don't get too excited - what's left of these blues when I've cut my hexy shapes from them will go into the bag with the rest of my blues - can't have them socialising with the other colours yet, but they are at least in the same box now, with only the very thin plastic of the bag keeping them apart.

What do you think, am I progressing in my acceptance of blue???!
I think so

Good on you Anthea...nice to challenge yourself.
I'm leaning more and more to blues now....doing those two wedding quilts was the inspiration to use more blues.
