I first spotted this fabric in October at Quilt Market. I liked it SO much - this was the print that first got me thinking about purchasing fabric by the bolt. By the time I got around to ordering, it was out of stock and being reprinted. I had to wait months for it to arrive. I was a bit afraid that when I opened the package I wouldn’t like it anymore. But I was so wrong! It’s still very me. So much so that I even thought for a moment of changing my name to Craft Pear. (Okay, not really. But ONLY because it wouldn’t make any sense.)
I haven’t gotten much of a chance to play with it, except to make this one little notebook cover. Too much else on the brain these days – especially after watching King Corn (you gotta Netflix it). I was on the brink of changing the meat we eat but after watching this movie, I’m through with corn-fed, feed-lot beef. I’m such a city girl and had NO CLUE. I’ve already found a local farm that will sell me grass-fed meat and I’m very excited! I’m also through with high-fructose corn syrup, much to the dismay of my son’s soccer teammates. When I was passing out snacks this week, several of them were disappointed with their high-fructose-corn-syrup-free juice.
