I think it's high time I shared a not-so-secret secret. I'm absolutely obsessed with the color red.
But it's really not just any old color red. I'm not a huge fan of fire engine red (too loud), and I walk away from pink, obviously because it's NOT red (no, not even hot pink).
It's that darker red somewhere between burgundy and crayon standard red....
Somewhere like right here:
Yes this is a Miche bag, though it's really pointless to be able to change out the shells (outer covering) so easily. I just keep the red one on all the time since it matches so nicely with my red shoes!
And the laptop and case (though the case is a bit too fire engine red for my taste):
For my birthday coming up next month Josh ordered me a new game boy and didn't even have to ask the color:
And of course this is my favorite fabric:
I only have around 5 yards of this left and I'm going to cry my eyes out when it's all gone.
For reference this is Timeless Treasures extra wide 108" Tonga batiks and once upon a time (2 years ago) they made these spray washes of solid colors. I believe this was called Claret, but I can't quite remember. All I know is I WANT MORE OF THIS FABRIC AND WILL PAY ANY PRICE!!!
(yep, I screamed that. Red obsession really can drive you over the edge.)
Since we're in the sewing room, then you already know the color of my main sewing machine:
And since it comes up every time I show pics of the machine, YES! I'm still in love with my Janome Horizon!
Last week we expanded the red collection to include this awesome red truck!
This is a quite beat up 1990 Nissan pickup that has been around the block and back. All I care is that it works, it gets me from A to B, and it will allow me to buy furniture without calling a friend to haul it home!
Of course, being obsessed with red might make you think that red belongs absolutely everywhere.
It especially does not belong on the floor as carpet where it shows EVERY speck of dirt in the world:
I've been wanting to rip out this carpet since the day we moved in, but since it's the 1980's wall-to-wall style and covers nearly every square foot of the upstairs of the house and will require moving 2 large fish tanks to replace, I've just decided to make my peace and live with it a bit longer.
So that's it for my red obsession. It is my absolute favorite color and just makes me feel good when I look at it.
Wait! One last red thing! My Sun and Feathers jacket is also red:
Apparently I'm not the only one that likes it because it's heading to MQX West next week! Cross your fingers it makes a safe trip there and back again!
Let's go quilt (preferably something red),
