March is done! Not all completely finished – but DONE! And a reminder – I am rationing my supplies right now so if you see something here you want me to finish and put up on Etsy let me know and I can create a listing.
I seem to have trouble with the bright and bold colors – pinks, reds, oranges. And these are so difficult to photograph! Getting into the yellows now, wonder if I will have the same problems? Here is March. Now to think about April.
This week things changed a little bit. Worldwide things changed drastically, so I felt I needed to switch things up a bit, tone it down, etc. So instead of completely finishing these hoops, I think I need to ration my supplies right now as we don’t know what is going to happen in the future. But I will add a “Finish This” option to Etsy, and add a page to the Blog here showing all of the Kona Color of the Day pieces. If there is an unfinished piece that you see that you would like me to finish, you can check out with the Finish This option on Etsy, and that will allow me to order the silk ribbon and the other supplies necessary to finish that piece for you. It’s just what I need to do right now.
These reds were really hard to photograph. But the designs were fun!
Oh my gosh – the world is so crazy right now. Right before I went to sleep last night I saw that California is on Lockdown. California is closed. California!! That state is so large, so many people. California – and the rest of the USA – and the world – I am praying for you, all of us, all day long now. It wasn’t like this for H1N1, SARS, MERS – nothing has ever been like this before. It is INSANE.
So on that note – I may not be able to finish my project. I think I can get through March, but anything after that is a guessing game. Will I be able to get the supplies I need – so many unknowns related to that – money, price, availability, time to complete, etc. I have the Kona and the thread, so at the very least I should be able to finish the panel, it may just not be in complete finished form when I post them, but I will try to finish all that I can.
This set starts to finish the deep rich reds and begins the oranges. I tried to have some fun with this set. My husband would like to have the Circus Monkeys one on a hoodie for Scout campouts, just need to change the “Crap” to something a little more Scout friendly.
As always these are available through Etsy. Stay healthy everyone. Please be aware of your interactions – be smart, be safe, be healthy.
This set we are starting to get out of the rich reds and get into the deep rich browns and oranges. I just had to do Sewciopath on the bold, bright Cardinal. And I really liked how the mandala turned out on that Garnet background! All listed on Etsy – only one of each so grab the one you want today!
Finishing the Pinks and into the Reds. This was a salty week. And as I find more fund designs like these, I have a feeling they will find their way into the mix! All listed and ready to ship – if you see something you like grab it today – only one of each!
Hello March! When I think March, I think greens. But this Kona palette has me into the rich reds and bold, deep oranges. I would have put this palette into September or November, but no, here we are in March. I’m rolling through the colors – I keep getting stuck on something and then I wait and think and go “okay this one!” and then it works. It’s definitely a challenge!
This set I have 2 of the same Kona Color for you – the designs were similar and I couldn’t pick just one. So I made them both. Find these and more on Etsy!
