Splash of Colour
How was your Wednesday ? Mine has been cheered up considerably by all your kind comments on my last post. It really adds greatly to my enjoyment of life, and crafting in particular, to be able to share it with like minded folks who are so generous with their encouragement.
I would certainly miss this little blog if I ever had to give it up!
I adore finding lovely blogs and inspiration via your comments. Today was just perfect for this . The comment left by Vivienne at Green Rabbit Designs led me to her lovely blog . Which in turn lead me to silverpebbles stunning site and her Splash of Colour flickr group.
The idea is to post pictures that are super colourful and will help lift our spirits during the dark, murky months to come.
Here ,Here !!
If colour therapy doesn't already exist , it should!!
I'm addicted to happy , sunny , cheerful colours at the moment. They REALLY lift my mood :0)
The whole idea of adding a splash of colour to my life inspired a small make over in my living room this morning. Our suite is not ideal, just a passed down, functional , place to sit............
This chair, I suddenly decided ,HAD to have a splash of colour ..........
What do you think !! Certainly more colourful . The boys even approved of this change which is great :0)
I sat and admired my mini makeover whilst making a few more circles for my blanket...
Speaking of crochet in the home , did anyone see Kirstys Homemade Home last night ??
I thought the programme as a whole was good , BUT ,the crochet part was sooooo disappointing . Where was all the granny goodness ?
I felt sorry for Kirsty trying to learn to crochet with scratchy red string. No wonder she soon gave up . Why oh why didn't they give her some quality wool in scrummy colours ?
Granny squares are so much easier to learn than the type of solid square she was attempting too.
You can watch the whole programme Here. The crochet part is near the end.
Sorry about the rant, but I love crochet so much and there are so many stunning examples all over blog land , this was such a missed opportunity .
I'd love to here your views :0)
