Christmas Knitting

Love this King Things font, I just had to get it and use it on a project. The heart is an highly detailed drawing of fabric I knitted. Have yourself a homespun Christmas.

Best wishes,
Connie

What Shade of Yellow Do You Like?

When I moved into my house some rooms had yellow walls. And I asked myself “How do I feel in this yellow room?” The answer was not good; actually kind of sickly.

They say a bright, strong yellow room can make babies cry and couples divorce. Not sure who “they” are but not taking any chances with my mental state I promptly painted the walls.

I like a yellow that does not scream YELLOW! That’s not for me. I am not an Olympic athlete going for the gold. I want a yellow that is happy and slightly muted with a air of sophistication when paired with gray.

My shade of yellow.
