Colour Competition Winners!
Thank you so much to all who entered our competition - what a fantastic array of colours we were treated to!
It was very difficult deciding but we finally managed to whittle the list down to 3 favourites...so, without further ado *drumroll* we would like to congratulate:
Sue Allaway: 'After dinner mints' - Deep rich brown creamy whites and shades of mint green!
Candy: 'Lovey-Dovey' inspired by a photo online The colours include the pink of the doves legs, the turquoise eyelids, as well as any or all of the plumage, but particularly the gentle pinky/beige breast and soft greys
Kay Heald: 'Thistledown Greys with Crushed Berries' - a combination of dark to light greys with maroon and magenta accents!
Please could our 3 winners get in touch with a postal address? We'll get sewing and you'll each receive a snoodette in your own colourway once they are made!
Please find a list of the entrants below for your enjoyment & thanks again to those who entered!
Orange, yellow, red and blue
Forever by Firelight
oatmeal, scarlet, russet and dark navy
I'm a yogi so thought a rather beautiful collection of colours could be under the theme 'shanti' which means peace. Colours that connect with this for me are violet, lilac, soft grey and white. Violet and white are very sacred colours as they connect with your highest self, universal energy and protection! Love Kate Gill x
My suggestion for the competition is Fallen leaves.
I would suggest terracotta, beigey yellow, brown, orange, maybe mixed with a little dark green for early falling leaves.
Your message: I would like to suggest a colourway perhaps called 'Guadalupe'. This would be a combination of the colours dark turquoise, gold, deep red and deep blue. I am suggesting this as I think the colours in the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe work really well together and it would appeal to anyone who enjoys Mexican imagery or just lovely vibrant colours when the weather is gloomy.
Pink yellow and white
Pictures of rich oranges & lovely turquiose were entered.
Your message: Colour competition: I always love these three colours together; purple, yellow and green. they can be super bright, or more muted, but they always brighten my day, and it's these that i'm drawn towards.

LOVEY-DOVEY inspired by a photo I found online The colours include the pink of the doves legs, the turquoise eyelids, as well as any or all of the plumage, but particularly the gentle pinky/beige breast and soft greys.

You have some lovely ideas already, but my personal favourite would be Thistledown Greys with Crushed Berries - a combination of dark to light greys with maroon and magenta accents! Yum!
When Autumn Leaves Start To Fall: a colourful combination of reds, oranges, yellows interspersed with browns.
Autumn colours - Sunrise Orange, Butterscotch, Tangerine. Rust, Rouge.
FIREWORKS can pick up on the Bonfire night/Autumn theme, but also pick out random showers of sparkling colours that would go well as the season progresses with silver, grey, blue, white, pink, red, gold , any colour really , that would entirely enliven our short days and long dark nights , the fireworks of New Years Eve and until January 6th: Twelfth Night.
SPRING BULBS the white of snowdrops, yellow daffodils, red tulips and bluebells, all set against the palest green to the darkest greens.
Robin redbreast is my favourite, it reminds me of a visitor in my garden.
