These fiber packs arrived recently - colors of gold, grey, purple. The gold is the color of tobacco leaves, a deep, warm tea, or perhaps an old, expensive brandy. The grey is the color of fog, mist, a soft cat, a favorite warm sweater. The purple is the color of mountains in the distance, a royal cape all draped and rich, an iris blooming in the garden.
I love both the way the grey softens the purple, the way the deep gold warms the grey. Today I'm busy creating a 'light and shadows' heart with these threads and feeling both their warmth and their richness as I punch and stitch.
"Such lovely warmth of thought and delicacy of colour are beyond all praise, and equally beyond all thanks!" - Marie Corelli
