deja vu

I am drawn over and over to the same color palettes. I just got some Amy Butler Belle fabric that I had been coveting. As I was looking at it, I thought I've got some yarn reminsicent of this...I do, Boardwalk by Yarntini. Cotton candy, and blue icees, yum. I look at this and I can taste it. (don't you?)

Then I made a Calorimetry for myself out of some interlacements Toasty Toes. And voila - I have some fun Bohemian fabric by Anna Marie Horner that seems similar to me...I look at this and want to wrap up in Anna's entire website - it's a delight.

Now I know that I am a purple fiend - but to find these similar fabric/ yarn combinations in my stash was like an "ah-ha" for me, like an appeal to the senses. I'm a visual, sensual person and here is maybe just another example of how I function, maybe an explanation of why I am so drawn to fibers. Maybe I should try to be more conscious of my "feel good" colors, maybe there is something more here, some benefit I am missing.

Meanwhile, what could I make out of fabric and yarn to mix up my media?? My instinct is to just touch it. I actually had the Yarntini in my bag to take to work just to lift me up. Is that weird? I also have framed pictues of yarn hanging around my office - I mean, I work with criminals - can't really display the kids - so another favorite thing seems logical. right?

Hancock's of Paducah was kind enough to send along a catalog that gloriously showcases all of their fabrics - lord help me.

What a feast for the eyes! I don't think it's weird at all, but consider the source.
