A busy week. A week filled with non stop appointments. Do you get those days? Days when a cup of tea or coffee is never savoured, it's just whipped down whilst on the go? But......it has been a colourful week I have noticed.
And I love colour.
Yes I do.
I know I'm a pastel girl day to day, but I REALLY REALLY love my shots of colour. They energise me, when I need to be energised. I have used this bag all week. It's bright and colourful. I was inspired to make it a couple of years ago when I kept coming across them all over pinterest. I have a big granny bag 'to-make' list. There are some beautiful ones like this this these this gorgeous turquoise one this this and this gorgeous one There are plenty of tutorials that are linked to on pinterest for all sorts of granny bags. Quick, easy and loving a shot of colourful granny goodness. I loved the plain granny bag edging look, but I had to adopt a border edge as I wasn't sure that my inner lining stitching was up to the job. It needed to be hidden! ha ha! I loved the mixture of colours though and the possibilities are endless. I'd love to make a plain one next.......maybe rectangular. The lining would certainly be easier to make. Long handles, granny handles, beads, buttons, colourful linings, frills and plain edgings. My eyes are boggling with granny love.
Putting together bags of colours for projects new. The fun bit.
Ahhhhhhh Rice DK. What's not to love about a colour burst like that.
Bright florals and stripes. My favourites.
Pattern and print. I am drawn to it like a moth to the light.
My visit here was brief this week, I am longing for it this weekend.
Stacking the blankets.
Colour, colour all around me to get me through the busy week.
Does anyone else use colour in this way?
And fancy some more colour and inspiration?
