It's here, it's here! FRIDAY and with Friday comes Color Play Friday!
Although I have been nursing a migraine all this week, I couldn't wait to dive into #ColorPlayFriday to express how I was truly feeling inside. I love the upcoming holidays and wanted to feel ready to just jump in, but between the migraine and school, it just wasn't happening. Anyhoo, I get to live how I feel in colors. Lots of bright fun colors.
If you are not familiar with Color Play Friday (as I gasp in disbelief), here are the rules that we follow:
That’s it! It’s going to be so fun to see what we each come up with.
- Each week, Trina or Lorinda will select a picture from their joint Pinterest board. These are all pictures that one of them has taken on their adventures.
- We each create a palette using colors from that picture
- We then create a bundle of 5-8 fabrics that are inspired by that palette. They don’t have to be an exact match to our palette, and we can throw in contrasting or accent colors, but the bundle should look inspired by the palette.
- We don’t see the other person’s palette or bundle before we each post on Friday.
There you go!
I am excited, as always, about my palette (except that first one, lol). I found the picture engaging. The picture is Trina's and I'm sure she has an interesting story to go with it. But, earlier I was watching Lorinda on Periscope and she told this hilariously embarrassing situation that she and her husband had experienced in that same location. That's all I kept thinking of as I was finishing up my post. So of course that left me so tickled that I wanted all my palette choices to be light, whimsical, childlike and well, funny. I wanted to look at this palette with a different kind of smile. Not just the giddy smile from drooling over awesome fabric, but also a smile because I was just tickled thinking about the possibilities with it.
So I now present to you this tickle inspired color palette, at Lorinda and her husbands expense. Sorry about that hon, but I couldn't help it. This color palette goes out to all the mom's of the world pushing their strollers and all the broken horn owners who nearly die of embarrassment.

This is so cool/ FYI- Katagami is the art of stencil dyeing on kimono or yukata fabric, this method is called katazome.
