Blue inspirations

Blue inspirations

But... blue makes me happy, too! My favorites are the greeny-gray shades, sort of robin's egg or cerulean or steel-blue gray, but just about every shade makes me happy.

How about you - is blue your favorite? I mean, if you were choosing one, just one shade of the rainbow to stitch in... for a sort of, oh, I don't know... contest? Hmmm? :)

Here's a bit of blue inspiration from the following Flickr talents, found in our pool:

  1. Now you know I love blue! I think I know what you're up to, and I think I like it. ;-)

  2. It's always difficult to select just one colour! My first choice would be blue..I think!

  3. I think this is my favorite so far :)

  4. Yes, I L.O.V.E blue as well!!!!
    And I love this "colours spiration" thing!!

  5. I'm looking forward to seeing what this all leads up to...I like all the colors though, but if I had to choose one I tend to select green...but blue sure is purty.

  6. Wow thats a hard one. I love blue, but I also love red. I guess I would pick blue though! I love these color embroidery posts!

  7. thanks for featuring my Abbey Road cross stitch!! (totally love your blog, by the way)

  8. Purple. Or red, depending on my mood. Maybe teal. But I am one of the very few people in this country who is not crazy about blue (not to take away from the absolutely lovely images in this post ;> ).

  9. oh man flor - you are killing me with anticipation! what are you up to?

    if I could only choose one color - I'd pick blue, it makes me extra special happy.

    p.s. thank you for including my green & orange cars in your beautiful compilations :)

  10. I love greener blues, colors of the ocean. So beautiful! Thank you so much for this inspiration. Can't wait though to find out what the pot at the end of this rainbow is.


  11. Aww, thanks for adding my Kokako piece to this group! I'm flattered!

  12. I am dying a little with envy.

    I love your blog so very much. It is truly inspiring. As an aspiring crafter these images are incredibly intimidating...but I cant stop looking!!! :)
