I LOVE Color! So Color My World.

Updated: Apr 11, 2019

That song by Chicago was always one of my favs :)


If you look at my avatar, it is very clear that I love color. Bright color - ALL THE TIME. Some of my favorite pieces that I have made are rainbow themed pieces.

Rainbow butterfly. One of my very fav all time mug rugs


This is recent, I loved making this - the flowers are all wool. I still have some left, just message me for a custom mugrug :)

Do you think I like pieces with LOTS and LOTS of color? Oh yes I do, just keep going :)

Everyone loves unicorns - This is made to order. DO you NEED a unicorn? Just send me a message

Even Pastel-y Easter can have nice bright colors

Rainbow love :)

She's my avatar :)



Ok, got the picture? Seeing a pattern??


My latest garland is a baby garland, which you can see here And here...



When researching crazy SEO tags and descriptions and what-not, I Googled baby's room decor. From literally hundreds and hundreds of images, maybe there were 3 or 4 images that were not gray, beige, ecru or white. Even the palest yellow was noticeably absent!


Just gray, gray, gray. Beige, beige, beige.


Mind you, I actually love gray, I make a ton of things in gray. Why? Because they photograph well! I admit it, that's why I make things in grey. Black too.


Seriously though, does no one want babies to see color. Ok I know I know supposedly they don't even see in color for however length of time. I love bright and exciting colors and I will continue to love them, even if they are not in vogue!


I used to work in a quilt store and many shall we say more age advanced ladies would come in wanting help to match colors with their quilts. Of course I am that age now haha - oh TIME you do have a sense of irony :) Some of the women would look at me in horror if I even hinted at a gorgeous deep red or blue or purple (or God forbid GREEN!) to go with their pastels or their beiges, or 30's repro. Now mind you all these people did BEAUTIFUL work, but I always liked the ones that came in with beads on their quilts or something with lime green and fuschia - that was the best! Something with pizazz.


So ok lately we have to be sedate, beige or grey, white and pale yellow. Sorry not me, I am sticking with my RAINbow colors until they are trending again. I create what I like what I create. Even if they don't trend, and I can't sell them, I am sticking with them :) I love you bright colors and I am a loyal true friend :)
