I find it appropriate that the first orange-y thing to show is from Marmalade Fabrics. I could tell you that my favorite reason to shop at Marmalade Fabrics is because of the name. Yes, it IS a yummy name and definitely makes me think of something orange. But actually my favorite reason to shop there is the extremely awesome customer service from Tammy. She always encloses the nicest note, along with a pretty package of fabric all wrapped up with some ribbon and a cool label.
Metro Living in orange, and grey--which is currently my favorite neutral. It really does go with anything.
Hmmm. Let's see what else arrived at our house last week while we were gone.
orange seam ripper, just in case I need to un-sew some of this orange-y fabric. Next we have a cream and sugar set for my beloved Fiestaware (the only set we had was definitely Christmas-y). That weird looking orange and white item is called a "prep n' pop vegetable helper"--it's designed to stick into some fruit or vegetable you are peeling when you don't want to get too close to your fingers and risk peeling them too. When we were at the local home show a couple of months ago, we got a great vegetable peeler, but it is vicious. Freaks me out. "Prep 'n pop" to the rescue. We may have ordered a couple extras as gifts. And they may or may not be orange as well.
And finally, two of my favorite prints from the new Children at Play line by Sarah Jane, purchased here.
Last week I took a picture of this kleenex box. Such a great combination of colors for a future quilt: green, two shades of grey, a touch of brown. And, oh yes. Orange.
