The thoughts, sewing projects, and fabric oglings of a dedicated sewist.

Peacocks preening ... peacocks round-up . . .

I'm usually drawn to reds - bright red, barn red, burgundy, maroon, brick red, and some pinks and purples.  I even wore 3-inch red Fluevog heels to my wedding, just to have some red to balance out the more innocent colors.  But this fall I'm being pulled towards the greens and blues - turqouise, moss, lime, teal, forest, kelly, and, most of all, that royal peacock blue.

It turns out that I'm not alone.  Remember those fall color trends from Pantone?  


Well, there's an unmistakable "peacock" / "art nouveau" feel to the cool section of the spectrum ... and I'm seeing peacocks everywhere right now!

Here's a round-up of some of my favorite peacock fabrics.  I think I'll be making my own fall skirt and handbag out of some of these!

Today I did see live peacocks at the zoo.  My daughters simultaneously called, "Caw!" at the tops of their voices when they spied them.  These fabric make me want to do the same!
