And in other news, I have been mixing and matching some charm squares of Mark Cesarik's new line for Freespirit Fabrics, Cosmic Burst, trying to decide what to mix them with and what to make with them. Here are the pinks, chartreuses, oranges and purples playing with some Oakshott shot cottons.
That grey background they're on is difficult to photograph and you really have to see it in person to get how beautiful it is. It is an Oakshott shot cotton called (I think) Thistle or Lavender or Heather or something like that and is lavender shot with a kind of pale grey/green. In the photo below, you can kind of get a feel for the mix of the colours catching the light. It is my current fave Oakshott colour and mixes fabulously with the Cosmic Burst although the top photo doesn't really show it off well.
