Cup Cozies

I have been making cup cozies for a while. I enjoy making these as they are not hard to make and I can do basically any design or colour I want to make.

So here are some of what I have done…and there are more on the way.

Perfect to keep your cup of coffee warmer for longer.

Me and My colours

pexels-photo-990829.jpeg

I love colours. They are everywhere. I can’t imagine a world without colour. 

Flowers, fabrics, cars and so much more.

Though there are so many colours, not every living organism can see the colours. Colour blind persons are limited to how their eyes perceive colour. Bees and other insects can’t see colour like we do.

Blue

My favourite colour is blue. Why blue? Here is why… I find it a calming colour. It reminds me of the ocean, sky and pools.

Blue is associated with depth and stability. It is a colour that symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue has medical benefits for the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity. Avoid using blue when cooking or on food displays as it suppresses appetite. 

Another colour I like is purple

Here is why:

Purple

The colour purple makes me feel creative with a hint of mystery. I find that it mixes well with blue as it carries my cool, calm and relaxed theme.

Purple has been associated with royalty as it symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, ambition, wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

Purple can evoke feelings of romance, gloom and sad feelings. For some people it can cause them to become frustrated.

 

It is not a colour for everyone, but for me it is a perfect colour.

 

What are your favourite colours? You can have more than 1 – I know it is hard to decide as you have such a large selection to choose from. But comment below with yours, I am interested to find out who shares similar colours to me.

 

YouTube Time

Where you able to understand what I was trying to explain and show? What other stitches would you like to learn? I am open to suggestions.

Roses

These roses are so lovely! The colours are amazing. Who would’ve thought that flowers can have such sharp thorns and yet look so delicate and beautiful?

These flowers were made like this by God for a reason. Why they have the sharp and painful with the bright happy colours, only God will know.

We are blessed to have such beauty to enjoy and treasure. Life is hard and painful at times, but there is always something positive amongst it all.

2018 temperature blanket

dav

This year for my temperature blanket, I am doing weekly blocks. This way it is easier to carry with me and I like making blocks. Also as there are 52 weeks in the year which won’t work for a blanket, I am going to add another 2 blocks for Easter and Christmas. That will be a perfect number to make a nice sized blanket.

I have 5 weeks done in the picture, a bit behind in weeks, and I am going to add a white boarder around each one. And I am going to use the join-as-you-go method.

I will post a picture of a completed block as soon as I have done one.

At the heart of it all

I finished a heart pixel blanket for my one sister’s birthday present. I really had fun making it, and the nice part of it all was that I only had to buy the white wool. It was a perfect design to use up all that odd colours which weren’t enough for any large project.

I am needing ideas for my next pixel blanket.

Until then….

I am making slow progress on my yo-yo blanket. It is pretty simple to make and uses such a little wool.

Pattern:

5ch, join to form a ring. 3ch, 15 dc into the ring. join to the top of ch3. Slip stitch the circles together as you work. I slst 4 rings together with 4dc between the slst.
