Fresh Dew.... that soft green that reminds me of sprouting flora and fauna in the spring. Early morning droplets of dew resting on delicate leaves of summer. Kinda minty but with a little yellow pop mixed in the green.
I love cinnamon in my Americano first thing in the morning....so very yummy! Besides the lovely flavor there is the smell of cinnamon and the color.....I find brown and brownish fabrics are hard to find...especially ones with a variety of shades in one print. I wanted my Cinnamon to have the depth of the spice in color...
We have been so busy around here with our Quilter's Affair Classes and the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show on Saturday...lots of fun and lots of work but worth every second to get to be with all of these wonderful people - men and women, mothers and daughters...and grandmothers, best friends, old friends... it is such a special event and since I was a year and a half when all of this started I can't imagine my life without it! THANK YOU to everyone who has ever come to our classes or the show or even just put a quilt in the show you have touched my life in ways I can't describe!
Salsa.... makes me smile and want to do a little dance. OR eat! HAHA! We have been getting the shop ready for next weeks classes and quilt show and I am already feeling a little punchy. But it is going so good, the shop looks great our staff is amazing they work together so well and I love the energy right now.... But I am here to talk to you about SALSA... yummy red, cherry tomatoes,and gerber daisies... just a few of the possible Salsa images. This red falls on the orange side of the color wheel....This is one of those punchy colors that a little goes a long way. It also reminds me of Freddy Moran... she uses red as a neutral in her quilts....
What do you use red for? I realize that I don't use a lot of red in my quilts...I might have to push myself and try Freddy's approach to making Salsa a neutral!
Happy 4th of July to all of you...I will be working but we might get a little fun in the afternoon!
PS...Next week starts the Summer Blueprint fabrics... So excited! Good-bye spring HELLO SUMMER!!!!
