Colour all around me

I was busy searching for mixed up colour inspiration this afternoon to inspire some more hooky flags.

A perfect bright and breezy day blue on a book cover. Add a few more shades of blue and a hint of green and it blows the grey day away.


The gentle green and pinks of my chipped, but loved Carltonware.


Then there are the colour jumbles. A small handpainted bowl.


A rainbow of ladybird spines.


The tomato red and green of Prince's saddle.


A flowery bouquet on an elderly vase.


And a C19th French fabric design. They all helped to mix up the colours a bit more.


Off I went to curl up with my yarn and hook and made a few more flags before the school bell went.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
