Beautiful Things and New Beginnings

My latest find at the fabric store.  I'm very excited to turn these from just piles of beautiful color into something useful and beautiful that I and others can be proud of.

I love colors.  LOVE them.  I like the mixing and matching.  I get so overwhelmed with the colors when I go to a yarn store, or a fabric store.  I always need to have a list and focus before I go in, or else 4 hours will elapse and I will have a basket full of colorful things that will have no real purpose but for me to admire.

I can always tell what type of mood I'm in by the colors I pick when I'm out shopping.  The brighter and friendlier they are the happier I am.  I am capable of purchasing subdude colors and putting together sophisticated color pallettes, my house for example isn't red and yellow, but when it comes to accessories they are simply a reflection of my mood, dark and somber, mellow and relaxed, subtle and sophisticated or energetic and cheery!

I am starting a new phase in my life, Mom will be my primary job title and my job description will become more varied.  I have some idea that I might be able to parlay my love of color into more than just a hobby.  This blog will continue to celebrate my love of color, be it fair isle, or fabrics.
