Teal is for good things

The colour teal. A colour I truly like. A colour of spring and happy things. I decided to do a blog seen through teal glasses so to speak. About things I saw on my last trip to Belgium.

A lovely lunch in the Christmas store as Mr Wonderful calls Slots in Kooigem – the place to be if you have heaps of money to spend and good taste…

And my godchild, godly in teal, growing into a young lady. She was a couple of months when I moved to England. Be still my heart for the second time.

Mono or rainbow?

Not sure about this one… As you all know by now I am knitting a beekeeper’s quilt. Nothing wrong with that. It’s supposed to be a knit up from wool leftovers, to clear the drawer with left overs from previous knitting lives. It’s supposed to be colorful. Mine is.
Colorful.

I am adding some of the wonderful Koigu yarns to my quilt, ordering them from Tall Yarns, fast service, friendly. And helpful. On top of all that, the lady is Dutch. How neat is it? Really? I can write in flemish to her and she understands it? Yep. A Belgian and a Dutchie find each other on opposite sides of England.

Over the last days I managed to fill up my puff jar, and decided to stitch some together. I don’t want to wait till puffs spill out of every drawer and cupboard of the house.

Seeing them all together poured out, I come to the realization that the quilt will be extremely colorful. Wondering if I should have stuck to 2 or 3 colours instead of tossing in all I have that matches from afar.

Eyeballing… that’s my color match procedure.

Chuffed to bits when my first 7 are tied together.

The hexagons are tied together at the mid-, top and bottom points. Nothing is visible on the front from the quilt tie binding method. I’m amazed at how well the blocks fit, and how sturdy the blanket will be.

I think I have some 30 puffs done and tied up, 330 to go. Better get on with it… Not one step closer to a decision. Multi color or mono-ish?
What do you think? After all, if I don’t like the finished project I can always give it to someone who does like mixed colours.

Thinking path nr 2: when we move to New Mexico, bright and rainbowy will be the message…

Thinking path nr 3: mono-ish can be more classy…

WHAT TO DOOOOOOOOOOOO?

Maybe I need a referendum of some sorts.
