New Love.

This is strange for a girl with a love of strong colour. I can feel myself drifting towards a visual softness which I have never experienced before. Where are my rich yellows, red and pinks. My bold spring grass and deep, matte turquoise. Maybe it's the weather, maybe being cloistered at home with two boys, maybe a deep yearning of the soul for apples and cocoa... who knows. Am I still allowed to call myself greedy for colour?

  1. Oh I'm afraid not!!! Wifey may say they are still colours. But I say they are not greedy in the least!!! I feel a name change is a must. For credibility’s sake may I suggest you change the name to stingey for colour or desperate for more colour although the latter sounds too much like a lonely hearts column.

  2. Maybe you have greedily had you fill? Maybe you are too full of colour now?! So you are moving towards lesser amounts of colour? Maybe this will lead to a day of white and then you will be starving for colour and eventually just greedy for colour again?

  3. I have to agree with Kiwi Stallion's wife (and knowing Kiwi Stallion that name always makes me laugh hehehehe). They're still colours and what beautiful colours they are. Uh oh, I hope my over exercised conservatism isn't rubbing off on you!

  4. Yes I've been wondering about KiwiStallion - is he the one who may be afar?? Anyway, look at my colours I've just bought - perhaps I am the greedy one now?! (don't answer this in any fashion that might confirm I have always been the greedy one)

  5. Colour is colour, be they bright or soft. One can be greedy for either methinks.

    These are very sweet.

  8. Oh, you're definitely still a colour-holic!It's colour isn't it? Ice cream colours are just as delicious as intense sweetie colours I think........... Your love of colour is just going on a slightly different colour path, and very beautiful too!
    Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

  9. oh yes of course you are! subtly placed and delicately balanced colour can be just as greedy - it says, look hard and notice me ;)

    well, I think so anyway. I am constantly polarising between soft hues and saturated goodness.

  10. Had to laugh at what Kiwistallion wrote. They are lovely colours, maybe you need a little sabbatical from the bright colours. Amazing crochet!

  11. They look colourful and gorgeous to me. I don't think your greed has gone anywhere yet.
