Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

All things green . . . are mine

August

I do love the garden ... not only because it's green, because it needs working in winter too and thenit's either muddy gray brown or snow white, so there must be more to it, maybe the strawberries, or the raspberries ... but also because of all the green, the shades the textures ....

Some of what I sew is green too - but mostly it's not - it is one of my  favourite colours, but it's a complicated colour. And anyway if you plan on sewing in green you are goign to end up with red or blue or yellow, it's like buying clothes, you o because you need trousers and you will end up with shirts and sweaters, well really anything but trousers.

  26. Green reminds me of my childhood... My big sister loved green back then and it still makes me think of her. Funny thing, now she loves purple :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like greens (especially the one on the top of your bundle), but I find they have the same problem as my favourite colour, red. Far too often they are only green-ish, and are also yellow-ish or blue-ish.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I steered away from green for years after serving in the Army. I now appreciate a springy green...no olive drab though!

  64. Funny about green.. I have never liked it! But these last 2 years, I see I have been buying it in my wardrobe...green hair clips even bought a green eye shadow packet last month and have worn green! And I put a lot of green in some fabric memory book pages lately! But what I really like is your garden up there..wow.. I'd like to have t hat! Let me know when you have a giveaway for that!!!LOL!!
