A good sleep.
And that calms me. No rush.
I love how the sun lit the trees this morning. I had to take a quick pic through the bedroom window. It couldn't stay.
I think I am in the mood for brown.
A real Log Cabin is brown, not sure I have seen many brown log cabin blocks in recent years. Some of the older quilts, yes. Lotsa brown here.
Color is so personal. I just reopened Whispering Color, now listed in the Free and Open links, on the Home page.
A friend once described her favorite color as “All of them. All together.” That’s my favorite! As an individual color, brown is NOT on the top of my list. Brown dulls my skin tone, so I rarely wear it. Once I moved into a house where everything was some shade of brown (even the furniture, and linens of the previous owner!). The walls were antique white (not white at all!) It was very depressing to me. It dulled everything I had. That said, I do not dislike brown. It’s just better for me with brighter colors.
I do love brown. I never understood people who don’t love brown and green – my two favorites. Marigold is coming in strong since I have been dying with it. All the autumn colors really.
they are all there if you look, nature has a full spectrum.
I LOVE colors placed on top of brown.
Thank you for so much brown.
nature’s base, right?
So much beauty and inspiration – the ice – the vat – dreamy stuff for me – thank you
Thank you for reopening Whispering Color!
There are so many shades of brown if you start thinking about it. I love the winter trees, without their leaves, showing their brown branches against the pale blue sky.
Today we planted a hornbeam hedge, during winter the brown leaves stay on the hedge. I love their brown colour, they have a sun like warmth.
Brown seems brighter in winter…
I am so in love with indigo. I’m not sure that will ever change.
I don’t have a favorite color. I love them all now.
That rich brown sure holds season! Lovely!
I have followed you for so many years. You have always made my day from the early days of your blog. I have always been so awed by you and your work. Thank you for the joy you bring every day. You are and have always been amazing.
Brown like good soil whence everything grows🤎🌱
Yeah, like that kind, maybe the Grow quilt needs a cabin.
thinking about how a mixture of complementary colors creates brown. cool browns. warm browns. the gradation in that. from winter into spring…
yes, always love the mud colors…
overdyeing is a favorite thing for that reason…
I have a friend who won’t sew with brown or wear it. When she was little, someone called her a little brown wren (such a compliment!), but she took it the “wrong” way and has lost a lifetime of browns. I love browns. Mostly coppery brown — the color of morning tea and my little dog. Thanks for raising brown!
oh gosh I wish someone would call me a little brown wren, we have one here and he is so friendly.
Looking through the ice at the winter sky. An exquisite moment. Thank you.
It was melting between my fingers. But I caught it.
Brown, of course I first think of soil. I wanted to plant the bare root strawberries I ordered this weekend…don’t think it’s going to happen as the ground is so frozen. I have done one square (so far) with plant dyed fabrics for my blanket, mostly brown. It is the most soothing of all the blocks.
There is a lot of brown here, early on I did not get the expected color from my dyeing, I got brown. My frustration turned to joy as I now have a lot of compost for growing ideas in cloth…
I think that is true for many of us… 🙂 Especially those that just leap in, with the intent to do our own research.
Love everything about this post. E v e r y t h i n g
That makes me happy!
I wrote a poem about brown once. Last line was “I am definitely brown.”
Glorious! Sounds joyous in some familiar way.
Love earth tones … browns and rust tones are a favorite.
they are familiar, deep down.
I love the truth of Brown. And capturing Autumn in the ice was wonderful!
so thin, holding it for a moment, it melted and my fingers were touching.
Brown is a soothing color to me … Happy Friday and thank you for starting my day off gently with lovely thoughts. Enjoy.
A gentle morning here, coffee is brown too!
I was building three little fabric log cabins in the woods, in my dreams last night.
Log like bolsters, in the fabrics I was using yesterday.
building in your dreams is very healthy
