What Color Means to Me

More Crafts, More Miscellaneous

“Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing?  Can one really explain this? No.” ~Pablo Picasso

I am proud to have a short essay and photograph published in the latest issue of Uppercase Magazine.  Issue 22 was entirely devoted to COLOR, and what a beautiful publication it turned out to be!  The Uppercase website  has a beautiful feature of the issue along with a video that you can enjoy.  The prompt:  What Color Means to Me… inspired me to write about learning to crochet as a young girl.  Crochet continues to be one of my favorite artistic mediums and choosing yarn for a project is such a happy, colorful process.

issue22-heldIf you haven’t had the pleasure of savoring an issue of Uppercase, you absolutely must treat yourself to a copy of this creative, and visually stimulating, publication.  Seriously, head over to the website and start your subscription.  It’s a gift to yourself.  Really. (You can even take advantage of the discount code “roygbiv” for $15.00 off the subscription price.)

Best wishes for a colorful day!

And life and love and peace are all new born.”

I was wrapping up a gift yesterday, and I wanted to give it an extra-special touch. Lucky me,  I found this free pattern and whipped up this sweet little bunny to give it some Easter flair.  It worked up quickly and was super easy! I used Caron Simply Soft yarn and a size I crochet hook.  I think I will make more in pink, green and white.  Won’t that be festive?

Happy Easter and Happy Stitching!
