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

I love your use of colours and patterns Karla, you have created a beautiful blanket :))
This is lovely, Karla. I look forward to seeing it even bolder and brighter when it reaches South Africa!
Beautiful, Karla, I love the design.
STUNNING design, Karla. You have used your greys superbly. :))
stunning blanket, so neat.
The dark border really makes the colors leap out. Karla, I think you're helping me understand what symmetry looks like. Love this blanket.
My theme for myself this year is to use the colours of each month and make PJ squares. But... I ran out of yellow very early in August, so started on grey, and have already make 19 PJ squares (neither my computer nor my tablet want to cooperate and help me put photos on here). However, the 2nd term has now started so I will be back to work from tomorrow, and knitting/crochet time will decrease sharply unfortunately.
WOW Sadie 19 grey PJ'S, 'way to go girl!'. Such an amazing contribution. Thanks ever so much, Kx ❤️
Lol - its summer break so I have hardly any paid work, and since we aren't supposed to go out anywhere unless necessary, I have been at home, knitting and crocheting squares for the past month - something I really enjoy so great fun!!
A wonderful contribution, Sadie. I can't wait to see the whole collection.
Woo Hoo, Sadie....that's great!! The ladies in SA will be thrilled. :))
19? !!! You made 19 squares?
Good grief that's a lot of work Sadie. Looking forward to seeing them in the future.
