I'm feeling a little orange today !


I've had this vague idea simmering in my little brain of a gift I'd like to make for a friend so I popped into the scrapbooking shop to pick up some odds and ends for my project . Well I collected a lot of pink items and then changed my mind and went for blues . Then I went for the purples and then some greens . Finally.... I went for oranges ! It all cost me a fortune so this little item had better work out . I will show you when it's finished that is unless I change my mind again ! I'd love to hear your reaction to the colours and what your favourites are .

The items you've shown in the picture are wonderfully bright and vibrant.

I love blues and greens mostly, but some days it has to be red or yellow. I know ... I'm weird!

I can't wait to see what you make. I'm not an orange person.....more the pink/red/burg person but I am sure whatever you are making it will look fantastic.

I LOVE your orange fabrics- they look really fresh and vibrant - I might choose oranges myself for my next project for a change as I usually go for pinks and reds..Love your blog!

I'm a bit of a blue/green/brown lover but don't mind most colours.
And I haven't forgotten about the award - well I did actually forget for a few days - but I have remembered again!!!

I've never given much thought to orange in my work, but the more I'm seeing of it lately, the more I think I would like to do something in orange.
Look forward to seeing the end result.
