Colour Monday

After a stinking hot weekend, during which the children hardly slept as they were too hot and sweaty, the weather has cooled down and I am ready to play with colour!

I had a lovely afternoon yesterday at our local pub, a lovely old bluestone, for our first monthly Crafternoon. I haven't met up with a group for crafting in years, so it made me SO happy to attend. Hanging out for next month!




Isn't is a lovely bluestone building? It is was built in 1861 and was the stopover for the Cobb & Co coaches six times a week. I just love to imagine the people who would have visited - the ladies in their so gorgeous dresses and all the local sheep farmers. 


Here we are knitting! Ha, ha! But really I can just imagine this being a place that women may have gathered during the war to knit their bit for the troops. 

This week's colour palette theme is something beautiful. 



And I cannot go past Audrey Hepburn for something beautiful. She is so lovely! I hope to plan a quilt using the Audrey palette soon. Just trying to think what style/blocks would suit her. Any suggestions?
Linking today with Porch Swing Quilts for Colour Monday.

  1. There is no actress today that matches the beauty of Audrey Hepburn! Wonderful colors!! Now how about a pattern to go along with them?

    1. She is so wonderful. I am actually doing a post on Wednesday about Audrey as I am reading a wonderful book about her at the moment. I have to think hard about a pattern.

  2. I actually have fabric stashed that almost matches your palette perfectly. It was someday going to be a quilt. Now, who knows if I will ever get back to quilting.

    1. I tend to switch between a few crafts. I'll be all crazy for quilting for a while, then back to knitting, or cross stitch, or embroidery. I really want to make a quilt in these colours now. I don't have much grey at all though, and I'm supposed to be good and not spend money! Oh no, what to do?

  3. Lovely Color Palette! It is so similar to mine. That's crazy. Classic Audrey Hepburn and a vintage bicycle. Who Knew?
