Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Leather. Leather is a medium brown with undertones of yellow in it.
There are lots of things I don’t have where leather is concerned. I DON’T have a good pair of cowgirl boots, even though I’ve wanted a pair for more than a decade. I have fat ankles that makes wearing even fashionable boots difficult. I’m short and so while I could get extra wide calf boots, I don’t know if they make those in cowgirl boots for me. My fat ankles pretty much match the rest of me. At some point, I may actually get a handle on my weight and it will decrease for the better. I’m still a work in progress.
The second thing I have never worn, because I never had that kind of money (or fashion sense for that matter), and that is leather pants/skirts. I just don’t understand the fascination. I don’t know that I ever did. Have any of you worn leather pants or skirts? Is it really up to the hype?
The quilt I highlight today has been shown on the blog before, but it’s so beautiful, as with most truly awesome quilts, it bears a repeat. So here it is. Harvest by Elise Lea for Robert Kaufman. It’s roughly 68 x 89 1/2, so a pretty good sized quilt!
