Antidote to Gray
Jumping the gun here? You betcha'! I've got Spring in my heart even if the only flowers blooming here are the orchids in pots in the studio (and the carved jade ones in these new pieces!) So crocheted silk with lots of goodies still has my attention and I'm waiting for an order with more colors of fiber. Meanwhile, I'm experimenting with what I happen to have on hand. I'm pretty sure I got this pale greenish yellow silk some years ago to coordinate with the same color in jade that I was (& am) crazy about---because it's that wonderful slightly greenish shade of yellow...I've mentioned how much I love this color before.
OK, so I'm reaching here for a palette that is maybe just a bit bright....and Springy!! An antidote to gray (and white and brown and yuk!) I'm almost ready to put a part of this new series up on my Etsy shop starting today, and intermittently through the weekend...
Hope everyone is getting dug out--if your temperatures are anything like here, all that white stuff is not going to melt for awhile!! Oh well, it actually IS still winter!
