Green VS Red









I made up these little thumbnails for a showcase website for people to go to to see the products I have available. I think you can tell from this that red is a colour I use more than anything. Although I also like blue and grey quite a bit I find it is hard to get the right shade of fabric, except in red. The fabric manufacturers manage to get that one right and everything else so wrong. Bottle Green is a colour I thought was used up on all the bridesmaid dresses in the early 90s, yet it seems to often be the only green available and it is a pretty sad old shade of green if you ask me.

I met up with Stacey from Sheeps Clothing last Friday to have afternoon tea and give her the shirt I printed up. She has posted a picture on her blog which is very lovely of her, and also gave me some of the Strawberry and White Chocolate Muffins she had made that day. Gareth and I were both impressed with the extra treats that week.

I think Stacey was one of the first people I ever did a swap with back in early 2007. I got some of her Knitted Hair Ties and they are the only hair accessory I have managed to not lose but when they look that pretty it is hard to just leave them at the back of the couch. Judging by the items in Stacey's shop, wool manufacturers know how to make a decent shade of green.

I too can't veer from the red. I love the red so..and grey, well grey is so moody and beautiful. Who can choose? I love all those colour choices. Do you think it's winter that is governing our choices at the moment?

The yarny types might do a good green, but I can never find a good red. Ho hum.
Your products look so lovely en masse like that.
Glad you liked the muffins :)
