Today's post is brought to you by the colour...

pink!

I have an array of rose~coloured items for show and tell,
including:

  • Pink cotton that's in the process of being crocheted into a wash cloth for a secret swap partner over at Ravelry:






  • A chunky pink necklace that I've just strung together:







  • A pretty silk top,
    found while I was op~shopping,
    that has pink roses embroidered into it:






  • Pink geraniums, blooming at my back door:





  • ...and more pink (and blue and green) beads:





Continuing my theme,
I've also been feeling in the pink,
ever since attending a vocal workshop led by the fabulous Tony Backhouse. I haven't been to choir for months; I'd forgotten just how joyful it is to sing and to be surrounded by beautiful harmonies.

Best of all, I'm tickled pink.
I've just had six month's leave approved for the second half of next year.
How lucky am I?

What's colouring your world?

Wow - six month's leave, that sounds great.

I'm in the murky grey-greens right now, nursing a cold and dyeing some grey yarn greener with some dandelion dye :)

Love all that pink -- you're getting into spring, right? That chunky necklace is great! Congrats on the leave -- sounds like big things are in store for you. (And yes, you *are* enough, just as you are.)

Green at the moment with envy for your 6 month leave! I would like to know more about the fabric behind the pink wool. The jacket looks lovely. I am thinking blue and white as I plan my next big quilt.

The pink yarn is sitting on a quilted cotton bag which, I think, was made in India. I love its gentle colours.
