Color Inspiration

I can't leave Mexico behind without a final burst of color. It's everywhere!


The doors:

Mosaics:
Chandeliers:
Flowers in store windows:
And on the streets:
Color to eat:
And to drink:
Color Parades:
And their aftermath:
So what did I work on the whole time I was there? These white-on-white bits! These are approximately 2" baubles for a large project I have in mind. I want to do one in color, but it always feels easier to start with a white-on-white version to get my bearings and focus on design instead of color. And it's much easier to grab a small bag of whites for travel.
But as soon as I got home, I decided I needed to jump into color again.
More on these soon.

Wonderful! My sis goes to Mexico regularly to stay with a friend there (almost every January, while it's snowing here). I'm thinking...I need to ask her to bring home goodies for me...

Love your stitched baubles, white and colors alike, and am anxious to see them in person! The colors of Mexico are wonderful; I was very attracted to those felt ornaments. :)

I got a chuckle out of all that color and then your white bits! Your last photo made up for that. Love those bits. Welcome home.

Robin, your baubles never cease to amaze me and I can't wait to see what you create with them. One reason I love Mexico is the color- bright, vibrant, full of energy.
