I seem to go through these periods of time where I just love one certain color or color combo and nothing else. When I was really little I remember I decided I liked sky blue. I remember getting made fun of in kindergarten because all the other girls like pink and purple and they said blue was a boy color. I still remember talking to my mom because I was so upset. I liked blue and only blue for a very long time. When I was a teenager I started to like Royal blue and I remember I had this big royal blue velvet curtain that I had tacked up across the room to separate my room from the boy part of the room. It became my little cave/sanctuary. It wasn't until I was already into my 40's before I started to like different colors. I went through a phase where I loved fuchsia. I still do but my obsession petered out and I feel in love with lavender. Then it became lavender and sage green.... and then this past year I added sky blue and cream to those colors. Slowly but surely, everything in my bedroom started to change to those colors. My bedding is purple/lavender and the other stuff in the room is a combo of lavender, blue, green and cream. I even made a crochet throw in those colors. I'm so glad I finally made something for myself.
Just last month I made a skull scarf for my sister in law in
gray and it turned out very cool also. I just love that yarn I used for this. It is Caron Simply Soft in Gray Heather and I had quite a stack of it.
It is happening already though... I can feel it like I saw a full moon and can feel hair sprouting out of my face and hands.
I feel a green and white phase happening. I am sitting here with a large tub full of all of my white/off white yarns and another full of all my greens. Every time I see someone post something that is green/white I just fall in love with it.
I have a design I sketched out in my design journal where I was trying to remember a quilt I saw. I loved the design but wasn't so thrilled with the colors they used. It was all just small squares so I used graph paper to draw it out as close as I could remember. Now I think I might use all this green and white/cream yarn and make a bazillion squares for it. Hopefully it will come together looking just as amazing as it does in my imagination.
