Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

For this weekly photo challenge

we want to keep it simple: share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you. It could be a symbolic, meaningful shade; a color that expresses how you currently feel; or a combination of colors that excites you and tells a visual story.

Nothing says much more about me than my fabric stash: the hues and patterns that call out to me. It’s a little disorganized, the boundaries between the colors are a little jagged, some important items are hidden behind others. It’s a collection of possibilities and permutations.

People ask me my favorite color; I say green. But most of the clothes I like to buy are blue. And yellow looks terrible on me, but I have yellow-gold dishes and I loved my yellow-painted kitchen and dining room. It would appear that the hues of me are not all that simple…

    A woman after my own sensibilities. I too love the color green enough to label it as my fav but rarely wear it – because it doesn’t particularly look good on me. From looking at your stash and items you have made, you love to work with color – strong “in your face” Color! I used to think I loved all colors but find myself more conservative and steer away from a number of the really strong hues – except Cobalt Blue and Magenta! silly me

      Even more remarkable are the colors in the yarn stash, the ones we are drawn to vs the ones we would actually make something for ourselves with; what a contrast! You do look great in the cobalt and magenta, though!

    I used to be a passionate quilter before it got pushed aside by life and then was overtaken by other passions. I would have died for a stash like this. :)
