|Beeper's Strip of Color|
|Oil Crayon Rainbow|
|(A Wonky) Quilt Made for My Mum|
|Perler Bead Circles|
|Perler Bead Squares|
Lots of color going on around here lately. Last weekend we found a large set of perler beads (Beeper calls them "melty beads") at the thrift store for $1.25, and new designs have been showing up daily. Not sure what we are going to do with all the circles and squares (please share your ideas--tiny frames? coasters with half-assed coverage?), but I am happy to see new patterns emerge daily. And the throw--I actually made that for my mum for Christmas, from that Anna Maria Horner fat quarter stack I bought ages ago and intended for a quilt for our bed, but--well, it just found its way into a little wonky throw because I thought my mum might like all that color to curl up under (and let's be honest, I could not stand the silent reproofs that lovely stack of fabrics gave me every time I looked its way). Oh, and the weaving set was an impulse Christmas gift for Beeper (bought it from Jack Be Nimble's brilliant little Etsy shop), one I second-guessed after buying, thinking he would never be able to slow down his pinball-energy long enough to weave a single row, or even have the interest--yep, I was wrong.
What kind of color are you finding in your home this week?
