"Audacious?" you ask? Absolutely! What other color unashamedly takes over quite the way yellow does? And what other color is the color of the Sun, around which our entire universe revolves???? And what other color can make you smile, just by looking at it? Yes, I think YELLOW knows that it is special, and it is audaciously smug about it too :*) But you just have to love it, right? It's like puppy dogs and kittens and babies - what's not to love????
But before we continue with our love for YELLOW, I have a little unfinished business to attend to....
Here is my GREEN Soul Searching block, finally finished!!!!
I was determined not to let this block slide - I've been really good about keeping up with my monthly blocks and I didn't want to fall short now! I just love this GREEN one - such rich color!!! And for once, I didn't have problems finding fabrics with interesting things going on :)
As soon as I had Soul Searching caught up, I happily dove into the YELLOWS and began washing them up so they could be ready for some serious playing!
It didn't take too terribly long to wash this color, considering I don't really have that many of them. Which is a problem since I'm making my Happy Dance quilt in the Pink/Orange/Yellow colorway! I'm finding that yellows are quite hard to find in something other than plain and boring. However, I did run across these fun yellows while traveling a few weeks ago....
|All washed but not yet ironed :*)|
I found quite a lot of the yellow and black combination (top row) - so fun!!! Don't you just love those glasses on the end of each stack on the right? And those FUN bees? They make me feel ready for summer!!!!
I bought only quarter yards of these sweet prints. I simply couldn't afford 1/2 yards of each at today's prices, and the shops did not cut fat quarters. I think next time I'm in that situation, I may spring for at least a third yard. Those quarter yards look so tiny!
I also picked up a few black-and-white prints - you can never have enough of those, right? My favorite?
This fun monkey print - it makes me laugh!!!
(May camera makes some of the monkeys look stained black, but they are not :)
I've recently finished two more HD blocks....
This is going to be one bright and happy quilt!!!!
And remember the picture I showed you yesterday of my latest sock project?
I want to thank you all for your kind comments *blush*
And I've decided to name these my Happy Dance Socks!!!
A lovely mug and mug rug made by one of my favorite people in the whole world - Starr Howell!!!! Can you see here that she even hand quilted around the flowers? I'm not sure how I can be expected to actually EAT anything off of that lovely quilt!!!!!
Starr always makes everything so wonderful with her special touches!
And did you notice the beautiful green spatula in the above picture?
It came in a set as a gift from my lovely friend Lynn, who recently visited from Seattle!!!!
(They are not yellow - but lime green and aqua always win with me - every time!!!!)
While she was here, I loaned her one of my machines so she wouldn't have to bring hers on the airplane. She was able to sew at retreat and then all the following week at her sister's house.
And I was delighted to be able to help of course :*)
This week I hope to get my YELLOW Soul Searching block done.
But tomorrow will be more work in my sewing studio - if I have time I'll share some photos with you!
What will you be working on?
