why is it so
Why is it that when you create in your mind the perfect sewing project with a clear idea of the colour and fabric you want to use that it becomes near to impossible to actually find what you are looking for? It must work on the same notion that the book you read is better than the movie. Your imagination has worked up this amazing finished project that then the reality of finding the exact colours and fabrics that mirrors your ideal picture becomes an ongoing frustrated search.
My fabric search today was simple enough - 'brown gingham'. Apparently brown gingham is hard to come by in this here neck of the woods!
And don't even get me started on cupcake liners... although I do remember Emily recently posted a link of a great online shop for all your cupcake liner needs. I wish I had known about that online shop before I went in search of 'brown cupcake' liners last christmas.
It would appear that little old Brown is a little underrated these days. Brown should be the new black!

P.S. I had a hard time finding brown gingham on flickr too!
