I'm going to just say it. I am disappointed-ish in Tula Pink's new line. I've felt this way for a while now, since she put the images on her blog. I've just been ruminating on it. Naturally, I haven't gotten my hands on it, and probably wont until winter, but the visuals for the range are only so-so (for me). Will I still buy it? A few pieces. I won't lie. The very first thought that popped into my head when I saw the digital images for the range was: Amy Butler. I'm not a huge Amy Butler fan. Even though I love Tula Pink's work, I just can't get off the fence for Parisville. I am also kind of sad to see her leave Moda--but that's only because I'll miss the precuts. The precuts for Westminster/Freespirit are much too expensive in my opinion. I just had to get that off my chest.



  1. I feel ya! I think I will like Parisville more than Hushabye, which was way too babyish for me. There are a few prints in the line that I LOVE but most are just ok. You can see all the prints at Hawthorne Threads now, and looking at them over there made me like it a little better.

  2. I could have written this post. I agree completely (even on the AB comments!). I wish I could just get a moda jelly roll and be done with it. Hmph. What to do, what to do... I don't want to end up loving it later after I see projects with it and then it be hard to find. You know??

  3. I agree completely! I wish I could get a JR and be done, or a layer cake. I took Steph's advice and went to Hawthorne Threads to look closer at the images, and I did find two or three prints I like. I still think the line has a lack of whimsy that was present in earlier lines. I like the fans prints (remind me of AB charm, though), some of the french lace, and the eye drops. I want to see the damask dot and the topiary prints in person to see scale and all that. I'll probably wait for some flikr images before I buy. I don't want to wait so long to buy it that I can't find any of the prints in the colorways that I like :/ So I totally feel you, Lucia.
