The Summer of Color 5: Week One. . .

 YAY!!.... 
The Summer of Colour 5
started this week 
 hosted by the lovely and talented Kristin
 This is my fifth year of taking part in SOC, each time I've managed to shake it up and do something a little different each year. 
-oOo-
I’m obsessed with all things arty and creative. I like to experiment and dabble in lots of different arts and crafts
...So, I'm hoping to do a little something different for each week of this challenge this time.
-oOo-
Now... I couldn't decide whether to knit or bead for Week One...
So I matched up some yarn and beads in the same colours and combined them both in my first project :)
Blue, Blue + Green 
 So... here is my Blue, Blue + Green offering....
 
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has done with these colours and next weeks Colour prompt..

...if you would like to join in the fun hop over to
Thanks for Peeking!

  1. Jan - your mermaid is absolutely delightful. I have just started reading a book about mermaids recommended by my harp teacher no less. You don't fancy making a second one do you or sending me the pattern? She is just gorgeous. I have only just remembered SOC5 starts this week, bit behind things these days. BJ

  12. Oooh Jan, you've done it again! Your little mermaid is wonderful (she reminds me of a Cabbage Patch doll). I love the beads you've included too. I remember some of your knitted birds from last year so look forward to seeing your other entries in this challenge too.
