Spring is in the Air

It's the time of year when the mornings are filled with the songs of the birds and the croaking of the frogs.  Trees are budding, grass is greening and flowers are even starting to bloom here and there.  I'm not usually much on pastel colors, but spring just seems to call for them, doesn't it?  So this year I put my own twist on a traditional spring color palette, throwing some khaki into the mix.  Much more my style.

Soft lilac, buttery yellow and soft green combine in a most interesting way.

Periwinkle and aqua.

Even a bit of apricot.

The challenge for me is to use colors in unexpected ways, combinations that don't seem intuitive.  Every once in a while, it results in something fun.

  2. I grew-up in the 70s; macrame was all the rage. I spent hours weaving plant holders and wall hangings, I got pretty good at it. I've never tried the intricate knotting you've achieved in your beautiful designs. Love it! Thanks for sharing.
