Colours keep me happy

my 2017 motto

COLOURS KEEP ME HAPPY

I like to have a thought for the year and they seem to flow from one year to the next in no particular order.  Here’s why I chose this one for 2017 …

Last year was a colourful year in many ways.  Apart from the joy of seeing the children find new challenges in their colourful lives and sharing their excitement, my own life at home has been gently taking shape with huge progress being made throughout the house.

At last, and with only a few weeks before the end of the year, the final room was decorated and I was able to introduce some colour …

before – the lounge

after - so cosy

after – so cosy and warm with F&B Rectory Red feature wall and my own red velvet cushions and a little Christmas quilt

after - new Garden Room

And what a delightful addition this garden room is to our family home.  It’s a studio and workroom, a warm outdoor space for escape from the house, a room for reflection and creativity…

It’s still a work in progress, but I wanted a calm space so have introduced some soft blue shades and there’s still more furniture painting to do!  I spent a few days ‘camped out’ in here with the collies, whilst the lounge and bathroom were being decorated.  It was fun and I was busy colouring up some painted furniture …

Did I mention the bathroom?  It’s been pink, white, blue and a few other colours over the years, but never Urban Obsession…

How could I resist?  Being bold in the bathroom!!!

So, colour makes me happy and I hope to introduce others to the fun they can have bringing colour into their patchwork quilts when my workshops start in the Spring.

Last year I completed 40 quilts – can hardly believe that! All of them colourful and hopefully bringing as much happiness to those who now own them, as they did to me whilst creating them.

Happy New Year
