Splash of Colour : November

by greenrabbitdesigns

Splash of Colour is the idea of Emma over at Silverpebble.
The plan is to post images of colour in the first week of the next four months from November through to February until the spring arrives. The colourful photos will then give us all a lift and see us through the dark days of winter. The photos can also be added to the Splash of Colour flickr group where anyone can drop in when they need a colourful pick-me-up!

My contribution to this months Splash of Colour are photographs of the contents of this drawer in a chest in my dining room. Now I know it is customary to keep cutlery and tablecloths etc. in dining room drawers but not in mine!! I have it full of this wonderful colourful wool. I can open it up and breath in all it’s gorgeousness when I need a colour fix. I have had all this yarn for quite a while and I can’t bare to use it because then it would all be gone and I don’t want that! Please tell me I’m not the only one to have yarn that they will never use.
Anyway I’m sharing it with you so that you can breath it in too and use it to brighten your days until the spring comes!

Thanks for a great idea Emma. 🙂

I particularly love all those bright colors on the right side of the drawer.

What beautiful, smooth, colourful wool! No wonder you don’t want to use it up, it looks so perfect like that. All my favourite shades are there. Such a lovely idea, to show a Splash of Colour and cheer everyone up!
Have a great week.

What beautiful coloured yarn… and you have reminded me I have a bag full of brightly coloured skeins of cashmere yarn (a bargain in a sale) that I’ve squirrelled away somewhere. Must have a search…

I think you must have ever colour of the rainbow in that drawer! They are so beautiful – no wonder you don’t want to use them! I could dive into the pastel greens at the moment!!! x

I was also thinking of a rainbow peeping in at these lovely wools Vivienne, a gorgeous splash of colour. As you well know I have plenty of beads in my stash which will never be made or sold on, they are just there for me to enjoy just like you do with your yarns!
Have a great week, it’s very mild at the moment here, hope it is for you too,
Love Jane x

I’m loving the greens and teals.
And of course I have yarn pets! Too pretty to use – and it would completely mess up the symetry of the bowl if I took any of the skeins out. They just stay there to be admired and petted once in a while.

These are so beautiful, Viv!

I can TOTALLY understand that you cannot use these, it must be therapeutic just to open the drawer and have a great look 🙂

Have a lovely day!
