Last night I got to thinking before falling asleep - now that is dangerous for me, especially if it is something I am trying to work out. And last night it was colour!!!!
All through our winter I was craving, needing, wanting rainbow colours - Red, Pink, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Lavender & Purple and thus my rainbow Hex blanket started. Unfortunately I ran out of Yellow one row short, which leads to the possibility of Red & Orange going the same way, so will have to wait while I order the wool online from here.
So my mind is wandering - I have started my DD2's Rabbitohs blanket (which even better is Xmas colours!!!!!)
Now a lot of people love colour in cold, dull winters - so I am "normal".
But last night .........
The colours racing through my head were inspired by this and this.
So yes, I now feel the need for ....
deep, liquid Shiraz red
soft, pumpkin orange
dark, forest green
and lovely, chocolate, yummy brown
Am I in the wrong hemisphere ??????
The colours are autumn colours!!!!!! And I am going very shortly into summer.
Now I am NEVER, EVER, EVER ahead of fashion, trends etc. So then that means I must be a season out on the other side of the world!!!! :-))))))
And some of my most favourite flowers also match this - daffodils (which I have never managed to grow too well as the weather is always too warm) and tulips - I love them!!! Need to get to the Bowral Tulip festival or even better Tasmania.
Lucky DH found me some to watch open :-)
Bye for now
