No, not black and white — that’s for the TV sets of my childhood — but shades of a single colour. At the moment the loom is decked in shades of green…
…a week ago it was shades of purple.
If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time then — as well as being thoroughly deserving of my heartfelt thanks and appreciation — you’ll probably have noticed that I don’t spend much time in the land of monochrome. I’m finding it quite a challenge. There is a strong temptation to throw in a pick or two of pink, black, turquoise, anything.
In other respects, though, I am enjoying the experiment. Purple and green are two of my favourite colours after all, and I am using them here to celebrate the colours of summer in Scotland as these designs are based on weather data. Right now our weather is not giving us a great deal of cause for celebration (and I reserve the right to leave the leaden grey of 2012’s rainclouds uncelebrated too) so I’m particularly glad to have something bright on the loom. Next up: purple and green at the same time. I can only do monochrome for so long, you know.
Haven’t had a cat picture in a while. Here is Phoebus, helping me with a photoshoot by beating the **** out of a piece of tissue paper.
