To Taupe or Not To Taupe: That is the question
A recent post comment from Lynne had me laughing so hard I almost fell off my chair. It's like a letter to the editor that just needs more discussion.
She mentioned that she still loves Japanese Taupe fabrics, but has seen a lot of chatter lately about how quilters are glad that we are moving away from this boring palette.
After some searching around, it is true that there are people out there that are tired of taupes! Seriously! Sick of them, and looking forward to their exit from the quilting scene.
Maybe I'm like one of those old hippies who still likes to wear tie die clothes 30 years after they stopped being popular.
They will have to rip the taupe fabric out of my cold dead hands.
Do you love taupes still? Are you eagerly awaiting their demise?
Leave a comment so I can get a better feel of what the quilting universe has to say on this one.
In other news, I've run into so many cool and interesting goodies lately, I have to share some of them with you here: Enjoy.
Above socks by Zkano: Made in Alabama! Too cool for school. Really comfie too.

Susan Frost Ceramics: beautiful, albeit not easy to order online unfortunately
Modern architecture & cool eats: The Shed in Healdsburg, on my short list of places to visit
