I don't usually get "designer fever". I didn't when I was a knitter, and I didn't plan on starting now.
Until, that is, I discovered Tula Pink. I think when I first saw her stuff my poor little brain just exploded. It's the richness of colour and the utter over-the-top sumptuousness of her designs that I love; bright intense colours and fanciful pictures.
I first found her Nightshade range, which is, sadly, now hiding in stashes all around the world. At the time I didn't know what designer fever was, and figured I'd nab some of it when I had more cash flow. Never mind... I've gotten a few little leftover fat quarters, not necessarily in the prints that I wanted, but it's a first world problem and not something that actually bothers me much. I'm certainly not going to pay $56 a yard like some etsy sellers are asking! ;)
I want to make the City Block quilt as well as a couple of other goodies, and so I had decided before Christmas that if the big quilt back sheeting with the witchy face on it was still available at I <3 Tula Pink, I was going to treat myself to a spending spree.
And I did.
So, amongst other things, I bought two City Block Sampler kits (because one would never be enough!) - and this... this my dears, is why I ended up with Designer Fever. Who on earth could resist such colour!? This is what two sets of City Block Sampler kits looks like smooshed together.
Bliss. Should I call in sick tomorrow and just spend the day glued to my sewing machine??? ;)
