This time of year my thoughts often turn to the color purple. Maybe it's because living in the frozen landscape of northern WI the first glimpse of it outdoors means Spring has truly sprung. Indoors, if truth be told, purple is scarce in this primitive lover's crayon box of decorating colors! Oh... if you look hard enough you will see bits here and there. But usually the more soft and muted shades of it. Lavender if you will.
The other day while searching for patterns online, this handbag really caught my eye! The shades of purple with the gold.... now I think I could handle that!
So I pulled a few wools from the shelves and raced to my frame, grabbed my hook... and.... well... I'm still having trouble embracing this color purple.
I might try my hand at making some of these wool covered eggs. The photo is from Olde Country Farm Simples on Ebay. I love the colors she chose. The purple is more like a light shade of the eggplant purple which I adore.
I'll leave you with this photo of a rug that my friend Lisa hooked using my "Flower Pot" pattern. I happen to know she hates the color purple! You will never see a speck of it in her rugs or home! LOL! She also hates to bind her rugs. So this one is not yet bound. I did give it a steam press and have been admiring it here in the studio. The earthy primitive colors are gorgeous. I guess you either love or hate the color purple. I'm really on the fence about it.
What are your thoughts on purple... do you wear it, love it, hate it, decorate with it?
