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.
Machine knit fabric
Lion Brand Yarn, Homespun, Golden
Yellow stained coconut shell button
1. Pin pattern to knitted fabric. Tape around pattern with a removable tape.
2. Machine stitch inside the tape line 2 times or use a double needle.
3. Cut outside the machine stiches; tape goes with the excess fabric. Crochet around each piece to hold edges in place. Hand or machine sew pieces together.
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.
