COLOUR MEMORIES

We all remember in colour but a lot of the time we don't realise it.    We only tend to notice colour in our memories when it is particularly striking.   

Some examples of this theory may be: .....the colour of your first winter coat as a child, ....the colour of the first car you ever bought, ....the colour you chose to paint your front door,....the colourful flowers in a wedding bouquet,...or the colour lipstick your Mother always wore.

   Charities are synonymous with colour too - a pink ribbon for breast cancer, the yellow daffodil for Marie Curie, or the red poppy for Remembrance and Hope for our Armed Forces to name just a few.    It could be that a charity has a poignant meaning to you which you would like to express.

What is your favourite colour....and why?

Which colours make you feel happy, relaxed, emotional or excited?

Where is your happy place, and what colour do you associate with the calm you find there?

Alternatively you could take a look through your stash and see which colour grabs attention and makes you think of a certain object, person, place, item of food etc.   

I'd love to invite you to express yourself in colour in your crafting, and tell us a little about why, when, who or what this colour means to you personally.........

Please note too that the Colour of the Month for September is Grey

8" squares, hats, handwarmers, blankets and hand-hold size toys are all encouraged to make and send to our needy children in South Africa.

Happy Crafting!

Thank you Karen for a great intro! I particularly like themes where there is the opportunity for members to share something about themselves…… we have learned a lot about each other’s music choices and sweet treats! I’m really looking forward to Colour Memories :))

One of my most favourite places to spend a holiday is Greece.   This knitting of 4 hats and 5 squares is inspired by the terrific hues of blue in the sky and sea, and the white buildings typically seen in Greek landscape scenery.

Oh, Karen these squares are so pretty.   When Gloria has a chance to see them, she will be thrilled, just as I am.   I'm not sure blue is my favorite color, but it is the running, as my yarn shelves will confirm.  I wonder what I will make this month???

Super items inspired by your Greek holidays Karen :))

Beautiful blue and white items, Karen, and your introduction has given me plenty to think about.

Lovely work, Karen. Love all the blues, a perfect representation of your holidays.

I wasn’t quite sure what to make for this month’s theme but you’ve given me some good ideas with your intro, thank you.

SUPER intro, Karen!! Thanks for all the suggestions for colour memories.....it has certainly got the  cogs in the brain slowly grinding.....hahaha.

LOVE your Greek inspired squares and hats....particularly the two on the far right. 

Oooohhhh these are so lovely. Nice capture of the blues in Greece. 

Karen, thank you for your nice intro. In fact I love all colours except too dark ones, so I use them only as complementary colours. I don´t love grey too much and as you can see I have got only this light and dark greyish yarn in my stash. /I am very sorry about the quality of my photo/.

Well done and "Thank you" for your blanket.   The colours tone beautifully, and your crocheting is so very neat!

Another charming blanket from your hook, Karla, and another beauty it is.

Absolutely stunning Karla…the colours, the design, everything!
