New and Blue

(Above:  Selection of newly stitched blue and purple fiber vessels. Click on any image to enlarge.)

Recently I finished twenty-one new fiber vessels and posted them both here on my blog and on Facebook.  A couple sold.  I was thrilled.  Then, my cousin requested one of the only ones that sold.  It was blue.  It seems that blue appeals to more people than any other color ... which is strange to me.  It is the color to which I navigate least!  In order to appreciate "blue" better, I decided to make two big balls of cording.  One ball was larger and in darker shades of blue: indigo, royal, navy, lapis, and denim blue.  One was smaller and lighter:  cerulean, Carolina, cornflower, and sky blue.  I decided to make each and every fiber vessel slightly different and offer them to my cousin ... first refusal.  The resulting fiber vessels are below ... and all but one are now for sale! 

(Above:  Cerulean. 5 1/4" x 7 1/4" x 7 1/4". $60.)
(Above:  Cerulean with metallic pewter thread and rim. 6 3/4" x 7" x 7". $65.)
(Above:  Cerulean blue with purple metallic thread and rim. 6 1/4" x 8 1/4" x 8 1/4". $70.)

This is the one my cousin selected!

I confess I do love blue -- even though in my work it mainly appears in skies! ;-)

However, Canada Post tells me that it expects the yarn goodies I sent to you -- many of which are decidedly not blue! -- should reach you by week's end or shortly take heart! You'll soon be in the PINK! ;-)

OMG! these fiber bowls are just beautiful...all of them...I can't even pick a favorite. A wonderful selection of variations of shades blues/purples.

Your bowls a beautiful. It's funny, I love blue (especially turquoise)but don't want it in my home decor these days. I'm sure more will sell.
