A Shot of Pink


To me, pink is happy and comforting. I love its bright jolly colour that adds a shot of warmth.
As you might be aware if you've visited here before, purple is my favourite of all and I'm currently making a summer cardigan in a lovely shade of lilac.


As much as I love purple, I felt it needed a shot of pink so I'm edging the sleeves with a narrow strip of bright fuschia! 


You can see the project in more detail here on Ravelry if you like. :)


Meanwhile, this morning I've listed a brand new print of my painting on canvas 'Travelling Dreams' on Etsy.

What a lovely new look to your blog! I'm sure I've told you this before, but I wish I had more guts to use bright colors like you do! :)

Jess said...

Thankyou Amalia! I might be frightened of lots of things but colour is definitely not one of them! ;)

So delicate, they look like thin paper, so perfect. Must be so beautiful to sit there! :D

Un très joli billet...
J'aime lorsque ces fleurs se referment le soir à la tombée du jour....

Gros bisous à vous.

I also had the thought that the lovely pink flowers were of paper!
I think pink is wonderful! xo Karen

Pink is a wonderful colour - agreed. Aren't dreams just the best way to travel - whether you are sleeping or awake, you have captured the mystery of dreaming so well in this wonderful art work.

I love the shot of pink in your knitting, I'm a big pink fan too. Your new print is both cheerful and relaxing, lovely combination x

i have always wanted a pink cistus. we once had a beautiful white one, so prolific in flower but sadly we lost her during a bitter winter.
i love how the pretty blooms have influenced your cardigan :)

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Dear friend, I feel the same about you! You are light and sweetness everytime! Your art is like no other in creating mood and it is appreciated so! I woke this morning and went with coffee in hand to the tiny little room I have been creating for reading (I read everywhere and have books everywhere, but, any how...) and read The Pink. I feel the same about that color. It holds magic and good feelings. Take care and thank-you for being you!

what a lovely spot! yes a dash of pink always adds a bit of fabulousness :)
the print is gorgeous Jess; i love the line work of her transparent body, how it merges with the colours. it’s just wonderful.
