Creating our World thru Color



What color brings joy to your spirit?? Mine is coral - something about that color just puts a smile on my face no matter what is going on in my world. I found in times of stress, distress and such I put coral in my view and I can see my thoughts change. I never really noticed this during most of my life but over life's bumpy road it seemed to be something that was so natural. It was like a small voice pushing me in the direction of coral. Last night I needed to feel the comfort of this color so the dye pots had been sitting on the counter waiting for me for several days but I just was not feeling it up until that moment. I gave into the calling and so I fired up the burners and let the universe do it's work. I watched as the dye played with the yarn. I stood still and quite while watching the shades appear like magic. When I took the skeins out they took my breath away - there hung a variegated coral which spoke such peace and love to me that my thoughts soared....


I would love to hear what you color is??? When did you know that this color had more meaning to you then just a crayon in the box??

Ah, color. Oddly enough, its brown. It ties me to the earth. Everyone else thinks I'm just boring for that, but it grounds me. I love brown!!

Oh Mama Tea - Brown does get a bad rap but your right it is our tie to Mother Natures bounty thru the earth. Thank you for sharing Mama Tea - Brown is never boring.

Oh, a crayon would never do your coral yarn justice! It's lovely. I think mine is green, kind of light, but not "minty" and not really a dark green either. More like the color of lettuce. Although I wonder if that's just a color of the moment since I've been dreaming of spring! ;)

Maybe that is why I keep making green batts - I just can not wait for some Spring or at least less snow... Are you all doing well at your farm??

Yep, everyone's holding their own here! :) Going through a lot more hay this year, it seems - the snow in the goats' pasture still hasn't melted one bit!
