Brown Friday & Orange Saturday & Thank You!
Thank you so much for your wonderful Birthday wishes, I had a fabulous day. I have been working a lot so haven't had time to return comments personally, so I thank you here. I really appreciate your friendship and support, you made my birthday a very special one.
Yesterday I worked til late then had some great friends around for a beautiful Thai meal, so I ran out of time to write about the colour Brown. In any case, as I looked around my home I realised most of my brown was boring, like my old op shop brown loungechair, or my brown computer desk, nobody wants to see those! So I had decided to change the colour from brown to cream (although I don't really call cream a colour, more a tint really!!). A couple of years ago a lovely friend gave me this amazing Nativity scene from WillowTree.
The figurines are simply gorgeous, made to look like woodcarvings, each piece has such personality.
Each year they sit on top of my piano (actually that's brown, but not in the pic!!), and serve to remind us of the real meaning behind Christmas.
For Orange Saturday, I just had to take a photo of the gorgeous orange and hot pink flowers hubby gave me for my birthday, stunning aren't they?
Also a pic of my wonderful old bobbin I found a little while ago, which holds some orange ribbons.
And, of course, some orangey fabric. The fabric on the left is another favourite Kaffe of mine, this fabric (August Rose) is an old one and you can't buy it now unfortunately. The fabric peeking through on the right is a newer fabric (Kirman), just as gorgeous. Kaffe's colours as usual are so saturated and glorious.
Only two colour days to go, thank you for coming along for a ride on the colour wheel with me, and thanks Kendall for hosting a fun, colourful exercise. I have almost completed the first border on my Love and Romance quilt so hope to get a photo up in the next few days. See you tomorrow xo
