Having pulled Rhonda's leg about Mouthy Stitches being an all brown swap, this colour has taken a bashing within the group, and although I will immediately say to anyone who asks, that I dislike, even HATE brown fabric, there are obviously exceptions to the rule.
So just to prove that I do not think all brown is evil, here are some of the fabulous few which I love...
Help, my eyes! These are my idea of what I could be given if I didn't claim to hate brown, f'ugly is not adequate, these are hideous, and maybe they wouldn't be any better in any other colour, but the brown just tips me over the edge. I cannot take the risk!
If you are not feeling queasy enough, these (in my humble opinion) are the ultimate crime against fabric...
These should be banned!
I apologise if you are not of the same nervous disposition and have a love of the brown batik, please hoard and enjoy your precious stash and never EVER share it with anyone as narrow-minded and opinionated as me!
Which leads me nicely onto... Marmite is the ultimate brown!
When I said my Cherry Star background fabric was going to be 'marmite', I meant that some will love it, (I hope), but I expect some people to hate/not get my choice, but I am prepared for that!
If you have never looked at the Marmite website, then do, I think it explains exactly why this is such an apt analogy! I hate marmite too xxx
Back tomorrow with less attitude, and photos of today's purchases, damn and thank you John Lewis!
