I pretty much just tossed the contents of the boxes on the floor. Why the heck not, my Mum was at the store, she had no clue what I was doing ;0). One by one, I lined up colors along my couch. I started with light Baby colors. It is not that shocking. I do mostly Baby items. But then I started tossing in darker colors that complemented them. And my line up grew.
Now everyone knows I'm a sucker for color. This should be no surprise to anyone by now, but I'm talking I had like 25 different colors and I was considering tossing in more. And I also have to be perfectly honest, I still had no idea what I was going to do with them at this point. But colors speak to me. I can't help it!
By day 2 I had picked out Light, Medium and Dark shades of 6 different colors; Green, Aqua, Yellow, Pink, Blue and Purple. I decided I was going to make up some Granny Squares. Yes, they have become my favorite thing to do. They are quick, easy, and fun to do and so very versitile. By day 3, I had 4 blocks of most of those colors, 14 to be exact, made up!
|Aqua, Green, Yellow, Pink, Blue, and Purple|
That's 56 adorable little squares all lined up nice and pretty like, just waiting for me to make something with! Of course, I have to finish the rest of my blocks first. And of course, decide if I'm going to pick those other colors I was talking about earlier. Yes, I know I'm a sucker. What can I say? I was also considering throwing in some ombre prints as well for a touch of funk! I haven't decided that yet. It depends on how many blocks I have made up when I'm done, and just how many I need when I am all said and done. Right now, these are what I have!
|Delft Blue, Robin Blue, and Yale Blue|
|Shocking Pink, Pink, and Young Pink|
|Medium Purple, Medium Violet, and Rose Orchid|
|Cornmeal, Maize, and Pale Yellow|
|Clover Green, Seafoam and Mint|
