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!
The last few days of February had the last few shades of pink before we get into the rich reds and warm red-oranges. I’m trying to branch out to make sure it all works together. Sometimes it’s tricky. But I think these turned out well! Find these and more on Etsy!
More bright pinks to work with – who knew there would be SO many bright pinks to work with? I love them, but sometimes they were a challenge! But Sew What?! This week I threw in a sweet southern phrase, some sass, my first use of a variegated thread on MAKE, and the first appearance in a Fairy Tale series – love those pigs! Find these and more in the Kona Color of the Day category.
Anything specific you are looking for? Let me know!
I finished the final 8 Chinese Zodiac designs and added them to the Etsy Constellations & Zodiac category – except for the Year of the Rat – that stays in the Kona Color of the Day category for now. They all use the same Kona Color and same silk ribbon wrap and Madeira metallic thread color, in case you want to display multiple years together!
Oh I had fun making these! I love a Chubby Unicorn (Rhino), and that bright Carnation pink just screamed Lacy Skull to me! The pinks have been tricky for me. When trying to decide on a design I have to see if it goes orange or blue, and what intensity is it, how intense do I want the background to be… I am hoping it will become a little easier soon, but I have a feeling that every month is going to provide some sort of challenge. Here are the 5 from this batch – enjoy!
Welcome to February! I made it through the first month and have started February with the Pinks. I find myself wandering through the day with “what goes with Punch, what would look good on Watermelon” in the back of my mind. Eventually I come up with something. This grouping includes a brand new Kona Color: Dragon Fruit, and my son said I have to put a dragon on it. So I did – a Fierce Dragon. The latest Kona Color of the Day images are below, and remember you can follow along with me on Instagram to see the Color of the Day on that day!
The first month is done – January is complete in a variety of rich purples. Do you have a favorite for this month? I don’t know that I could select just one, there are a few that I love, and my child is trying to claim most of them.
If there is a particular piece you are interested in, remember they are all listed on Etsy, and the links below are linked to the Kona Color of the Day Category. Hope you had a fantastic first month of the year. On to February!
