Nothing Rhymes With Orange


I made up a cover for 2012's notes, thoughts, plans, lists, etc... basic 9x12 blank drawing book...
no chach here... simplicity is the mantra of this new year.( PS. I did not do this embroidery, I got it at a garage sale when I was downstate)


Got my blocks pinned to another piece of flannel to keep track of placement and picked....

 this block to start on first.

Yahoo says Tangerine Tango is the hot color of the year, we'll see. I need the boost this time of year anyway. The book "Color Healing" ( one of my favorite books and one I'll be referring to throughout) says orange is linked to the warmth of sun and fire. Put ORANGE  into your life when there is a feeling of bleakness and boredom, particularly when there is a sense that time is really dragging, when there is a resentment of changes in familiar routine and an obsessive need to have things in their" proper" place, overseriousness and being unable to see humor and playfullness in life,  fear of experiencing pleasure through the senses and an inability to let go of the past. Also problems with blocked experiences in life such as decrease in personal creativity.
Well, if orange can help me with all that, then I'm ready !!!!!  but not too ready ... this is one of the split blocks, obviously I'm not that ready for that full blown orange block in upper right. ; )

Now I need quit aquarium gazing

and having Luke pull my chain by begging me to go in and out and in and out and in and out and.....

OH My! that little deer embroidery is adorable. I would have snatched it out of your hand in a heartbeat. (Yea, I'm that mean! *snicker*)

Who knew orange could do all that?
I love orange. Have for a long time. Use it as "peach" in my house (goes with all the blue).

What does it say about Red? I would like to add that to my Beginner's Study Group--we are starting with red blocks.

I've never liked orange, but you know, that makes sense. Thanks for sharing that. I love the group of blocks together. My eye just moves around all over, sort of a pinwheel effect.
