The Color Orange and "The Color Purple"

I feel that orange is a beautiful color, but for the life of me I cannot understand why it is so hard for me to find that color...just plain orange. I see that rust orange like you would use in the fall/autumn and sometimes neon orange, but just a plain old regular orange, I cannot seem to cross paths with.

Well, I just wanted to show you all what I've been working on the past couple of the color orange.

Here is the afghan for Analuz. It's in "pumpkin" orange. I hope she likes it. She asked for a blanket, I said "no way" and I compromised and made her a lapghan, which is really what she wanted because she wants to cover her feet when she watches t.v. in the winter. She's 11 and very "to the point." :-)

About "The Color Purple". My friend, Mary, invited me to go see the play, "The Color Purple." I'm so glad to be able to go with her and her family. She keeps inviting me to plays and for some reason the scheduling has not been at the right time, but my plans are to go this weekend.

And last, but not least, look at what one of my coworkers gave me yesterday!
She said she purchased it because everyone kept raving about how this is the new thing to get, so she did, only not to like it at all. She's a teacher assistant by day and a seamstress by night and she says that the shears are better for what she does; this cutter is more for crafts or quilting. It felt like a lucky day!


  1. Hi Libby:

    I arrived in NC today at noon. My Dad is about an hour from the airport Newton, NC.

    Yes, it is a small world, I am hoping to move here and I will definitely be spending winter here from now who know maybe we will get the opportunity to meet.

  2. lucky girl!
    I love plays and musicals, my husband doesn't... he goes sometimes just to make me happy, but it has been awhile since we went to the theater...
    by the way, I'm jealous of your friend that is going to Brazil, I can't wait to go, so my family can meet Lucas.
    I hope you find great stuff at the lady's house!

  3. I was wondering where were you hiding your hooks. Nice blanket! I love orange, it's so bright and cheerful. Hope Analuz is loving it too :-)

  4. Oh! I like it a lot!! what stitch did you use? Lucky girl, I can just picture her watching TV with her lapghan!!!

  5. CT, I posted this project in my Ravelry account and the pattern is available for free from Coats & Clark online. I actually found this pattern as a leaflet in the yarn section at Wal-Mart. I'll send you a direct link in Ravelry as a reminder. The only stitches used are this cluster stitch and the front and back post double crochet.

  6. @ Gloria: There is a very, let me repeat, very nice fabric store in Gastonia called Mary Jo's. It is near the airport in Charlotte. If you get a chance, you should go there since you got your new machine and all. :-)

    This is so cool that we might actually get to meet one day!

  7. Hope you have fun at the musical. Sounds like fun.

    Orange is hard to find. Why?

  8. I hope you have a great time at the play, it is such a beautiful story. I would make a lapghan before a whole afghan too. As she gets older, you could add to it. Have a great holiday weekend!
