A touch of color

The world is full of color. It comes in all shapes, sizes, and elements. It is physical, spiritual, and literary. This blog is going to be about the color we have in our lives. Open your eyes and you will see it.


You'll probably want to know something about me and how can I talk about color. I came from southern California originally. Grew up with the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, and Gidget. The color was body tan and ocean blue.


I discovered how books can bring color to my life. Reading was a passion. Painting came next, bringing life to a blank canvass. I found that people brought color. Enter foreign exchange students.


Besides paint, I think glass is the ultimate color experience. It's pure eye candy. So I discovered what I can do with fused glass, amazing things. However, always lurking in my soul was the desire to paint with words-write. Finally it erupted as children's stories.


I invite anyone to blog with me about your passions that give color to your life. You can also find me on Facebook. Let's have fun together.

    1. You are so right! Quilts, needlework, crewel, and cross-stitch! Oh the colors you can make! I love counted cross-stitch, but I had to stop when I began having trouble with seeing (I bought a magnifying glass) and with carpel tunnel (I bought some gloves). Neither solution helped. I still have all my books and floss and will probably take it up again someday.

      I've seen some beautiful quilts made as murals or tapestries to hand on the wall. It amazes me what you can do with fabric. Do you have pictures to share of your quilts?
