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.

  • Pattern drafted from a sweater I own. The draft much shorter in length than the original.
  • Loose swing styling with knobby texture and braided button loop.

Knitting

 

Hello yarn lovers!

Fabric was knitted by machine then photographed. The photo was converted to a digital vector image in Adobe Illustrator so it can be used at any size. I created a red colored version, the color of my yarn, and also this black and white.

Blue and White Tea Quilt

Quilt throw

Machine quilted cotton

I have made a few quilts over the years and I thought I would share some. This Blue and White Tea quilt my sister and I made for a family member. This person likes tea, blue and white china and a splash of bright color here-and-there. At the fabric store we picked out all the blues that would go with a tea cup and pot fabric.

This quilt is constructed of squares and occasional four triangles making up a square. To give it a slightly formal touch we made the edging and binding out of a simple stripe.
