Lovely Colors

A glimpse of my garden. Orange Helenium and purple Penstemon. I love these colors together.




I have been working on some new ideas for my crochet. I started to realize that maybe there is a reason why I am drawn to so many forms of artistic expression. Perhaps so that I can combine them in new and exciting ways. At least that is my hope. Being inspired is such a wonderful thing!

Hi, Melissa,

Glad you're feeling inspired!

I like what you say about combining forms of artistic expression. I was feeling a little down earlier worrying that I enjoy too many forms of artistic expression, but I think you're right and that one thing can lead to another as well as being combined in interesting and different ways!

I have lots of purple/blue and yellow/orange in my garden, too. So much of my color inspiration comes from nature. Oh, and I'm wearing an amber-y colored dress with a purple sweater today.

Hi Melissa, just stopping by to say thanks for your visit and lovely words on my blog! Your blog is delightful, and I LOVE your crochet. I very nearly bought a huge crochet patchwork quilt at a flea market last week.... I'm still pondering where I'd put it, I just loved the look of it so much! Kelly's course is great isn't it!?
