Hey guys, I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend.  I’ve been super busy with all the preparation for my daughter – she’s starting preschool, yikes. So I’ve been lagging with the blog posts.  They grow so fast. Tomorrow is the big day, and it’s the first time she’ll be away from mom.  I just hope that all will go smoothly, and by smoothly I mean, I hope I don’t break down in tears, haha.

So I’ve been researching colors.  I love colors.  The right color or color combinations can really make a high impact in a room and make it pop. Unfortunately, not all colors make for good textile designs, particularly bright neon colors. Bright yellow, for example makes for a less desirable results against white fabric.  It doesn’t yield that high contrast that other colors might. But of course there are exceptions…
Personally, I love yellow.  And here are some beautiful work all in yellow.
