Color Inspiration

I love the color chartreuse or mustard yellow. I especially love it when paired with grey, but today, I saw this fabric in my local shop, Canvas Works, and fell in love! It's not a color that I can pull off wearing, but It excites me nonetheless.

While I was chatting with Nancy, the owner of Canvas Works, she mentioned to me that Kaffe Fassett and his partner Brandon Mably are going to be in town! Brandon is going to do a day long knitting workshop, and Kaffe is going to do an evening lecture and book signing. I am just so thrilled! Both of these men are intensely creative and inspiring. And while I don't always love everything that they do (heck, I don't love everything I do, and I like myself a lot!), I am inspired by them very very much and I can't wait to soak up anything that they are willing to impart. This will happen on October 5th, and it's already in my calendar! If any of you are planning to be in town, and are interested in attending this event, you can contact Nancy at Canvas Works to sign up. It's going to be amazing! I also purchased some of the koi fabric (not by Kaffe or Brandon) in two additional colorways: I thought it was lovely in all interpretations. I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet, but I'm sure I'll come up with something.
