weekly photo challenge : color

I took a couple of weeks off from the photo challenge, but how could I resist this week? Color? Really? I adore color. I crave color. I breathe color. Color is incredibly important! So, I thought I’d do the challenge. Check here for more entries. Personally I can hardly wait to start going through them. But back to my picks. On a normal challenge I can’t contain myself to one photo. I’m fighting to limit this selection, but I’m not winning the battle. I thought I’d show a few things around my house – things I enjoy every day. The first photos show some things in my studio – slippers and textiles over the studio closet doorway, my most current sewing project, fabric scraps that are too wonderful to dispose of, a bucket of pearl cotton embroidery thread and of course Kush the cat hanging out on a fabric shelf. (I didn’t follow the challenge instructions EXACTLY – I was just too excited to read it until I’d finished. Oops!)

I’ll finish with a couple of pictures of my tile work on the house exterior. I’ve may have posted them before, but I can’t help myself. I love color. I love this challenge!

    Hi Terri, thanks for following my blog.
    It seems Kush has that special cat talent of squeezing into the smallest and most awkward places for a nap. Very cute and nice pics.
