My Harris Tweed samples arrived today! You have no idea how excited I was when I saw a package waiting for me in my mailbox that traveled all the way from the Isle of Harris, Scotland. FIrst thing I did after I opened it was to arrange my samples by color on my cutting table in the studio. Like a kid in a candy store, I could not contain my excitement. Sampling them one by one in my hand, I imagined what they could be transformed into. I matched two colors up to each other and thought of a two tone bag. Another one, in a beautiful shade of heathered blue, I imagined adorned with a bird on a branch sitting against a blue sky. After a while my sugar high was so intense that I had to step away. I did manage to make a selection for my next order. I chose some gorgeous blues along with some other spring-inspired shades. It was so hard to make a decision since I really want them all!
