Blue is not a color you see a lot of in my house. I used blue in the eighties, but you won't see much of it around here these days. But...it's starting to creep back in. Stoneware crocks with cobalt blue are a favorite of mine and lately, well, that lovely blue is calling my name.
This is a rug I hooked years ago and it does, indeed, have blue in it. It's a Jeanne Benjamin pattern and Jeanne helped me color plan it. I believe the pattern is Antique Beacon. It's on the floor, under the tea table, in front of the sofa in my living room.
These blues and teals are Jeanne's dyed wools, and the camera does not do them justice. I'm really starting to see blue and want more of it around for the Summer.
Love the indigo found in early coverlets. I'll be pulling out blues today. I just washed my white slipcovers and they are calling for some blue...and red...always red. It's that time of year.
Sweet Allegiance's BFF is in the works. I have grown very attached to "Allie" and don't know if I'll be able to let her go. Sigh.
Thank you to all who left such wonderful comments about Sweet Allegiance. I truly appreciate your kindness.
I do not use patterns, or make patterns to sell, but I certainly understand the unfortunate goings on out there with regard to pattern piracy, and stand behind those artists trying to put a stop to it.
Enjoy the day,
