Yesterday Margene instigated a meme of red and pink. She suggested that Project Spectrum participants find red and pink in our homes and then post pics of all the red and pink goodness on our blogs. I'm rising to the challenge here. Having two wee ones, a boy crazy about superheroes and Star Wars, and a little girl, red and pink is not a problem. Take this pink hippo that was my daughter's Valentine's gift, and my son's Elmo. Elmo's big at Chez Craftylilly. You can barely see it, but the toys are on SWB's bed which prominently features Spiderman, another red superhero. Other than lots of red and pink toys and kid clothing, I also have some red and pink purses. I love purses and bags. It's a good thing I don't have lots of money or places to go. I would have quite a selection if that were true. The ones we have here is a little pink Vera Bradley purse. I love Vera Bradley... The other red purse is the little satin handbag my SIL gave me for her wedding. It's a perfect evening bag. Of course in my beading life, I've worked a lot with red and pink. This bracelet is something I designed a few years ago. It uses an off-loom stitch, peyote stitch. I used two colors of pink seed beads and Val Cox. Pardon the cat hair in the picture. It's funny how I don't notice the cat hair until I take a picture. I really should clean my window sills. But I digress. Then finally, we have Angelica. I've finished with the body and am onto the sleeves. Again this isn't the greatest representation of the colors of the yarn. I had to take another dreary day pic. Angelica is turning out quite nicely though. The knit has been relatively quick, and so I hope to have her done soon. What about the rest of the Project Spectrum participants? Flash your red and pink!
