Sounds like a save-the-environment kind of post, doesn’t it? No, nothing like that…I’m just thinking green today in an attempt to escape the white world in which I currently live. More snow today, record-breaking low temperatures tonight…no wonder the thought of green is so pleasant today.
Green is such a restful color. Maybe that’s why there is so much of it in our world. The vibrant greens of spring are so welcome after winter. As the season ages and spring turns to summer, the greens darken into a cooling color which helps our eyes and mental well-being as the temperatures soar. Green rejuvenates us and refreshes us. Green calms us and restores us.
In the spirit of late-winter restoration, join me in thinking green…
Speaking of green, the green holiday is just around the corner. In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, I designed and stitched a little freebie for your stitching pleasure. I’m calling it “Green Rhyme” and it’s just a friendly warning about stepping outside on March 17 without wearing the proper color. Hopefully, you’ll have time to finish it in some cute way. If you do, I’d love to see it.
If you’re interested, the free pattern is on the gallery page of my website. After it was put up, I realized that the pattern uses the symbol ‘H’ but I didn’t paste from the symbol page of the software. No matter, it only uses one color and that’s Shutter Green from The Gentle Art.
