Did your mom ever tell you that stripes and checks don’t go together? I think that’s what my mom said . . or maybe she told me purple and green don’t go together? I can’t remember. Mom is probably reading this and thinking . . I never knew she listened to anything I said! See, parents? You never know when your little angels are listening to you!
So I heard but it didn’t soak in. Yes, my mother is saying to herself . . nothing soaked into that hard head!
Would you have thought of putting these two fabrics together?
Yep, it’s a stripe and a check! These two have been aging in my stash for some time (I do not know how long!). I wanted a red border for the striped bear paw, and as I was digging through the reds, this check jumped out at me. Mom, please forgive me for using stripes and a check together. Maybe I’ll make you another pair of socks to make it up to you.
I have no idea why I bought either piece of fabric but they are perfect together . . at least in my eyes! Start looking through your stash for something that you bought or somehow acquired and just can’t figure out what to do with it. It’s been fun to use these two fabrics but when I finish this top, I’ll have no more of the red check. That makes me sad but I can’t use the stash and keep it too . . or at least I haven’t figured out how to do that!
