color blizzard

There's been an orgy of color going on here. The Lawrenceville Frankenstein Dyedeck has been burning up with heat and awash with jewel tones, my favorite indulgence.

This is the time of year when I say "Cram it" to the misty, pastel, and delicate colors. Take a vacation, we are rocking the loud and lively. These are the colors that will sustain me through the drabness of winter.

I get the sense that the term jewel tones have fallen out of favor in some sets. There's a reason these colors are named after the precious..it never fails that if something is offered in different colorways, the jewels sell out first.

There's enough here to keep me busy for some time.

From the dramatic to the sublime. All I need is a rainy day for ironing

I'm with you... the brighter and richer, the better! Probably why I have been a dyer for so long... just can't get enough color! Enjoy...

Day Glo....remember that? the old Neon? So what is the old Jewel?

Besides...who gives a flying patooter? Mother Earth makes a lot of amazing colors herself!
